Overview of the tour in Lisbon

On the outskirts of the historical city center of Lisbon lays the district that saw a whole nation sail towards new worlds. Some would never come back, while others would return with tales and riches, and a name to be written in History. Since the Tagus river and harbor were the reason this area developed, you can see most of the important things just walking along the flat riverside: parks, museums and historical monuments, some of which are classified as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. And on a totally different note, this is the neighborhood where you can find and try the famous Pastel de Belém!

Learn the History and legends of the old town's most representative neighborhoods, told by accurate, local guides, getting a truly personal and insightful view of Lisbon, walking through the city's narrow alleys up and downhill, lost in time on a genuine "back to the past" tour.

Along the way, we will visit points of interest in the city's historic center on an entertaining and informal guided tour where History, stories, and fun facts combine.
