Highlights

  • See the Chiado quarter over the Barrio Alto, the squares of Restauradores and Rossio and walk over the famous Rua Augusta to the Praca do Comercio
  • Optimal to get a first impression of the history and structure of the city of Lisbon

Description

On this tour you will learn the history of Portugal and its capital Lisbon. You will get to know the historical quarters, starting with the Chiado quarter.

The tour starts at Largo de Cameõs and leads to Chiado Square. From there the route passes the oldest bookshop in the world, on the way you will often see that Lisbon is a city with many superlatives. This can also be seen at Largo do Carmo with the remarkable Carmelite monastery or on the platform of the elevator Sta. Justa with the famous panoramic view.

From Chiado, with the appropriate information, you then go down a picturesque staircase to the lower town, to the squares Rossio and Restauradores. Learn about the significance of the monuments and discover hidden places with culinary and cultural highlights in the richly decorated houses around these squares. After a look into a breathtaking church and discoveries of a Moorish nature (as in a thousand and one nights), the path leads you through the richly decorated main street of Lisbon's old city, the Rua Augusta. Equipped with the most important information about the great earthquake of 1755, you reach the Praça do Comércio with its elegant monumental buildings and the popular "triumphal arch".

Breathe in millennia of history on this tour - from the historic market for exotic spices to the assassination of King Carlos and his son, the heir to the throne, in 1908 and the Carnation Revolution in 1974.

The tour ends at the equestrian statue of King José I, where you will get valuable information about typical restaurants, trendy places and interesting places.
