Lisbon off the Beaten Path

This is not a typical first time visitor walking tour. Sant’Ana hill is very close to the city center although is not over crowded as the center, even had and still has its role in the live of the Lisbon citizens.

The starting point will be the beautiful Avenida da Liberdade, from there we will walk a sort distance to reach Lavra Funicular (if not available we will take a taxi) to go to the upper part of the hill. Here we will see the view point, or we wouldn’t be in Lisbon this amazing hilly city!! Sant’Ana is know as the science hill, with some former convents that became hospitals (still today), offers beautiful facades, narrow streets, former manor houses and the impressive statue of Sousa Martins.

After exploring the hill we will walk down, passing by Martim Moniz Square. We will finish at the city center at Rossio Square, from where you can continue to enjoy by yourself the city.

Moderate walking tour, the tour is made for small groups (up to 8 people). For larger groups, we need to check the details such as, where will be the meeting point, headsets, etc.
