Your amazing Lisbon Tour in detail
To discover the city nothing like a tour through it`s most interesting points with enough time to enjoy the views and feel the sounds , letting yourself be taken by the uniqueness light of Lisbon.
I will pick you up at 09.00 am at your Hotel and we`ll drive along the riverside towards the western part of Lisbon to visit the Belem area where the Jeronimos Monastery, the Belém Tower or the Monument for the 15 and 16-century maritime expansion awaits us.
This is a district that resumes all of the glory and achievements of the former Portuguese colonial empire and maritime expansion that begin in the 15th century.
You will be able to visit the Jeronimos monastery , a big elegant building that has centuries of history carved on its walls from medieval times to the late 16th century.
Another essential place to visit in Belem is the Fabrica dos pasteis de Belem cafe where you will taste the famous pastel de Belem ( traditional Lisbon pastry), a delicacy made since 1837 in this factory that keeps its recipe a close guarded secret until today.
By 11:30 we can go to the downtown which was totally rebuilt after the 1755 earthquake and walk the streets that lead to Terreiro do Paço square. Here you will witness the gorgeous harmony between the light and the river that makes Lisbon such a special city.
From the elegant and original streets of the Chiado quarter we reach miradouro de São Pedro de alcântara, a view point that gives us a great panoramic view of the eastern side of the city.
As lunch time gets closer we can taste real Portuguese food at the Mercado da Ribeira ( Ribeira Market) or in the Chiado area where there is plenty of good genuine Portuguese food and wine options.
In the afternoon we head to the São Jorge Castle where Lisbon started and expanded from through centuries. Here you will visit the castle walls and pre-Christian archeological sites, and have great views to the western side including the 25th April bridge , downtown area and the Chiado district.
After visiting the castle we head to the city eastern area, Parque das Nações (Park of Nations) where we can admire the wide and modern avenues created in the late 90s .
We will also experience breathtaking views of the Tejo river, as well as the modern architecture of the oceanário, MEO Pavilion arena and the 17km long Vasco da Gama bridge.
Have a nice day 🙂
