Jewish history. General history. Art. Culture. Stories. All woven together with Paolo's personal and family story. Amazing, intense and interesting. Everyone in our group had the same conclusion--The best tour we have ever taken, anywhere, anytime. Don't miss it.

We put together a group of 12 passengers from our Celebrity Cruise and everyone raved about Paolo's passion in explaining the history, showing us the sights, and telling the history of the Jewish people in Lisbon and Portugal. He is a national treasure of Portugal!

A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake

name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the
