About
The cosmopolitan and literary Chiado, together with the bohemian Bairro Alto, both vibrant as ever, are roamed about in this Lisbon walking tour. The life and personality of the best known player of the modernist generation in Portugal – the poet Fernando Pessoa – provides the adequate script. You will also spot unique perspectives of the city, available only from Lisbon’s most Romantic hill and the first one to be seriously planned as an urban site in the 16th century. Key features of this walk include: Bohemian life in Bairro Alto Lisbon growing outside its walls A Baroque splendour in the city The poet Fernando Pessoa The “A Brasileira” coffee shop and the Modernist Generation Breathtaking views over the city The golden age of the newspapers

We took two of Lisbon Walkers tours: Chiado & Bairrio Alto, and the City of Spies. Both were led by José, and both were great fun & very interesting.

We’ve actually taken a number of tours from various tour operators during our 3 visits to Lisbon, and I really think Lisbon Walkers tours offer the most comprehensive and informative introduction to the city.

Free tours are good for that first or second day in a city, when you’re suffering from jet lag and you just want to get a basic lay of the land. But once your brain fog clears and you’re ready to go more in-depth, then you need to call Lisbon Walkers.
