Most important sites & Monuments in this private tour
Lisbon has been declared by Lonely Planet as one of the 10 best european cities to visit. The city has a very rich and wide cultural, gastronomic and historical offer. Plus the perfect weather, generally shiny and with mild climate.
This private walking tour will kick off in front of D. Maria 2nd Theater, next to the plaza del Rossio, the main square of the city. Your private guide will show you Baixa, which is the neighbourhood that represents the heart of Lisbon. When Lisbon suffered a earthquake in the year 1755, this area was completely devastated, so it had to be restored by Marquis de Pombal, who re builded the whole area with bigger streets than the ones before, and many more open spaces. He developed a new anti seismic way of constructing which was new for the time. Many architectural styles are represented, including the unique neo gothic style of Mesnier du Ponsard. You will arrive to the plaça do comercio, the biggest square in the whole city, which has a open view to the Tagus river. This location was traditional where traders would sell their foreign wares and financiers would fund perilous expeditions to the far reaches of the known world.
After visiting the plaça, you will continue your tour in direction to Chiado. Chiado is the popular shopping and theatre district of Lisbon, which has a selection of historic monuments, tradition shops and interesting cafes and restaurants. This neighbourhood used to be the home for the intellectuals, writers and poets, of Lisbon.
You will walk around the beautiful streets of Chiado, while your tour guide tells you the history of this stylish quartier, until you arrive to Bairro Alto.
Bairro Alto is known to be the neighbourhood with the best nightlife in the city. During the day, this area is pretty quiet, and it is one of the best areas of the city to go for lunch or dinner, it hosts a wide variety of restaurants and bars. One of its best point is the Miradouro San Pedro de Alcantara. This viewpoint is located in the west of the city, and it has a very wide garden, where you will enjoy a stunning view of the city of Lisbon, Saint George´s castle and the Tagus river.
The tour will start and finish in the same place where it started. It has a duration of 3 hours total. As said, it is possible to adapt the tour to your own interests, here we showed you an example of what we think would be a very good way of getting to know the portuguese gastronomy. Remember the tour is totally adaptable, and we are here to help you organize it on the best possible way.
