Lisbon in One Day Small-Group Tour
From $69.31
Overview
Immerse yourself in Lisbon’s heritage during this small-group, full-day tour. Explore Lisbon’s oldest quarter, Alfama, and learn the history behind the famous monuments and squares from your guide as you go. Pass through the neighborhoods of Bairro Alto, Chiado, and Baixa by minivan, and discover the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Jerónimos Monastery and Belém Tower.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at your Lisbon hotel and set off for your guided tour of Portugal’s hilly capital. Board an air-conditioned minivan and head to Lisbon’s riverside district of Belém and see two UNESCO World Heritage-listed monuments. First, visit the 16th-century Jeronimos Monastery and listen as your guide explains how the ornate arches and abundance of pinnacles is a prime example of Portuguese Manueline-style architecture. Nearby, see the Belém Tower, where soldiers once gazed over the Tagus River searching for incoming invaders.

Continue to the Monument to the Discoveries which honors Portugal’s Age of Discoveries and its navigators who left to explore trade opportunities with India and the Orient. From here, enter a nearby cafe and taste a renown Portuguese egg tart pastry, pastel de nata (included).

Afterward, continue to Mãe d’Água (Mother of Water), a massive reservoir built between the 18th and 19th century that stored water from the Águas Livres aqueduct. Inside, see a small museum dedicated to the history of water supply in the city. Access the terrace for an impressive view over Lisbon.

Next, stretch your legs with a walking tour through Lisbon's historic center. See some of the traditional neighborhoods like Castelo, Mouraria, and Alfama, the city's oldest district. Learn about the influence of the Moors in this 8th-century neighborhood and then meander around narrow streets up to Graça viewpoint, where you can take in one of the best bird’s eye views of Lisbon.

Your tour will conclude with drop-off in central Marquês de Pombal and/or Rossio.

Great experience

Guide and driver both excellant and very personable. They took extra time to explain locations and background. History of lisbon was provided by both the guide and the driver. We were the only occupants because other couple had cancelled.

It would have finished around 6, but we wrapped up close to 5 because of the heat wave.
