Your experience


Join an experienced guide on a 3-hour trip through the capital of Portugal. View the ancient St. George's Castle and visit Alfama, the oldest quarter of the city.

This tour follows the tracks of the old town walls. Travel back in time and learn, how the Romans discovered Alfama and its thermal waters. Even today the neighborhood is a labyrinth of winding alleys, small squares, steep stairs and narrow streets, where you probably would get lost on your own. Enjoy the medieval maze of this quarter and explore the historical soul of Lisbon together with your guide.

One of the main sights within the district is the St. George's Castle. Explore the millennium-old walls of the impressive building, which is overlooking the Tangus as well as the whole Old Town. Today it is a place of peace, but its original use has been different. Be introduced in the history of the fortress and enjoy the most breathtaking view over beautiful Lisbon. This walking tour will solely 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

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.
