All reviews roman times fish factory free visit lisbon history guided tour free tour underground ruins time slot gave an excellent century bc excellent guide worth a visit romans artifacts archaeology archaeologist augustus
Wow ... 2,500 years of Lisbon history in one small spot. Many tourists walk right by this museum and never know the treasures it holds. Offered by Millennium Bank at their location near the arch and main square. The bank discovered these ruins during an...More
Pre booking for the 3pm English tour meant going there in the morning, being sent around the corner to find the entrance and popping in.
That gave time to go to the Roman Theatre, have a great coffee and lunch at Copenhagen Coffee Lab in...More
My wife found the museum on the net and booked in advance because that is the only way to ensure you are ona tour. Our guide for this tour was Maria and she answered everyone's questions but she just happens to be an archaeologist so...More
Didn’t actually see the ruins because apparently you need to reserve your spot ahead of time and we were turned away at the door saying they were all booked up for the rest of the day. It doesn’t state ANYWHERE on their website that you...More
If you love archaeology, you can’t miss this place in Lisbon. You’ll be guided through centuries of history, and everything is free. Just book in advance as the tours may be all booked. The entrance is on this street but on the parallel one.
This museum is based on the artefacts found when the bank next door was doing work. it gives an insight into how the area looked in roman times with much of the roman buildings still clear.
Its free entry but the tours are done in...More
We searched this place out to see the underground ruins obviously, BUT, we were blown away by the beauty of the building itself. It is the original Bank of Portugal. You don't have to do a tour, you can just wander round by yourself which...More
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 construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the
imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
Super frustrating because you’re right it says ABSOLUTELY NO WHERE that you need to book in advance. But based on my mistake (haha) you have to go to the reception desk (on Rua dos Correiros) and book a time and then the... More
Super frustrating because you’re right it says ABSOLUTELY NO WHERE that you need to book in advance. But based on my mistake (haha) you have to go to the reception desk (on Rua dos Correiros) and book a time and then the actual entrance to the museo is on Rua Augusta (the main strip). Hope it helps!
We didn't make a reservation but turned up at the door at the start time. There were some police outside the door saying it was closed, but we checked with the receptionist in the bank who advised us just to wait outside... More
We didn't make a reservation but turned up at the door at the start time. There were some police outside the door saying it was closed, but we checked with the receptionist in the bank who advised us just to wait outside the door and the tour guide would come out to collect us. At exactly 10am the door opened and our tour guide came out. She was a qualified archaeologist who conducted the tour in English. There were 2 other couples on the tour who all spoke English (although 1couple were portugese).
The tour is fascinating, one of the best things, and quite amazing to think what you might be walking over in this wonderful city.
We had no issue with Language in Portugal as most people speak English fluently.
