We signed up for the Lisbon Essential tour with a wonderful guide named Catarina Gomes. Couldn't have asked for a better, more knowledgeable, friendly, easy-going leader.

I just wanted to say how wonderful Rebeca was as our tour guide! Both my husband and I had a wonderful day and with a terrific detailed explanation given by Rebeca, we felt as though we were part of your beautiful country. Her astounding knowledge and her passionate views on Portugal were remarkable. We were glad that we had Rebeca... More

Rebecca provided us (group of colleagues) with good information during our 3-4 hours walking trip in Lissabon. Her knowledge of the history of the city is very extreme and she showed us the highlights of the city, which was very nice. If you need a guide for Lissabon, book Rebecca!

Lisboa Autentica was the best choice I could make to for my group of 100 people. Passion and love for own city - this is how they hooked me. They went the extra mile and exceeded my expectations. I would definitely work with Mafala and her team (Anita and Pedro?) again!

We called Lisboa Authentica the evening before the tour for possible tour in the area of Alfama and Castle. And spoke to the owner of the agency Mafalda, she was genuinely helpful, receptive to our wishes, and very flexible in finding the guide for us while there was no planned tour on that day. On the phone she was explaining... More

Interesting tour, amazing choice of places and history given by the guide. Tour lasted 3,5 hours. There were 6 of us including the guide Luis, who is very experienced and told us a lot about the history of wine, history of Lisbon in general etc. Highly recommended.

We had an excellent visit of Lisbon with tour guide Claudia this morning. She showed us arround in Bairro Alto, Baixa, Chiado and Aldama and told us a lot about Portuguese history and lifestyle. Without a guided tour we would probably not have seen stunning places such as the Cervejaria Trindade - the oldest and most beautiful beer house in... More

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighborhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
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"!
