Your experience


  • Visit Alfama, the oldest and most picturesque neighbourhood in the city
  • Discover the medieval surroundings of the castle of St. George
  • Get to know the heart of Lisbon and its history on a tour


Follow your experienced guide on a three-hour tour of the Portuguese capital. See the historic castle of St. George (Castelo de São Jorge) and visit Alfama, the oldest quarter of the city.

The tour follows the traces of the old city walls. Travel back in time and learn how the Romans discovered Alfama and its thermal water. Even today, the neighborhood is still a labyrinth of winding paths, tiny squares, steep stairs and narrow alleys where you could easily get lost on your own. Explore the medieval tangle of this quarter and get to know the historic soul of Lisbon alongside your guides.

One of the main attractions in the region is the castle of St. George. Look at the millennia-old walls of this impressive building, which overlooks the Tagus River and the entire old town. Today the fortress is a peaceful place, but you will still sense its original purpose. Let us introduce you to the history of the castle and enjoy the breathtaking view of this building. This tour is guaranteed to take you to the heart of the city

Altogether a tour through the district, during which we would have wished for more background information on many stations

Reply of the supplier on 07. June 2017

Lieber Herr Albrecht, besten Dank für Ihren Kommentar. Die Führung „Das alte Lissabon“ dauert zirka drei Stunden und führt durch die beiden ältesten Viertel der Stadt. Vorbei an der Kathedrale Sé, dem römischen Theater bis hin zum Burgviertel, das noch seinen ganz eigenen Charme bewahrt hat. Immer wieder ergeben sich wunderbare Aussichten auf Fluss und die Alfama, mit ihren labyrinthischen Gassen, Treppen und kleinen Plätzen. Alfama ist die Wiege des Fado und die ganz eigene Atmosphäre ist überall zu spüren. Der Rundgang gibt einen Überblick über die Entstehung Lissabons, aber auch einen Eindruck über das alltägliche Leben der Bewohner der beiden ältesten Viertel. Themen, die nicht direkt mit den Vierteln zu tun haben, werden am Rande abgehandelt. Unsere Guides sind auch immer gerne bereit, offene Fragen zu klären. Wir legen großen Wert auf kleine Gruppen, um den Spaziergang so interaktiv wie möglich zu gestalten.
