Description

From the Phoenicians, who were literally called the "Silent Bay", to the Romans, who were the first great settlers, and the Arabs, whose presence left its mark on the streets of the old town, on this tour you will discover the most important places of the capital of Portugal. Because, as today, it was Lisbon's pleasant climate and geographical location that attracted all the communities that were able to reach this end of Europe.

Get to know the history, but also the modern changes that the picturesque riverside districts, like the Alfama, have undergone. The days of fishing and the army of dock workers are over, but the district still has strong links with this type of maritime activity

And even if the place has changed, one still has the feeling of a small town within the big city, where the sense of community remains strong, as if the narrow streets had formed a wall to the community.

During your historical city tour you can visit, among other things, the Lisbon Cathedral and the Casa dos Bicos, as well as the places shaped by the Phoenicians, Romans and Moors.

Learn more about the Jewish presence in Portuguese history and stroll through the enchanting labyrinthine streets to the best and most hidden vantage points the city has to offer.

Experience the fantastic musical style of Fado: the blues of Lisbon. Let us take you on an eventful journey and get to know the different facets of the city better.
