Fernando Pessoa was a famous writer and poet in Portuguese speaking countries. Seeing a city through the eyes of its artists, writers or chefs is always the way I want to see a city. The tour guide Fabrizio Boscaglia turned out to be a person who had extensively studied Fernando Pessoa at the University of Portugal. I had just arrived... More

We did a scavenger hunt with Lisboa Autentica and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. The staff were lovely and the hunt was incredibly well organised. We got a great overview of the sights of Lisbon and there were also some questions about the bride included (it was a hen party!), to give it all a more personal touch. On... More

Just completed this tour, starts at 10.00. This is a walking tour with hills and steps!!! It was brilliant! Katrina took us to places it would have taken us ages to find, she knew all the shorts cuts and alleys. She was also very knowledgeable, and personable. Included is a tram ride and a coffee and a cake. recommended!

Had a great afternoon being guided around the old town. We would have missed so much going solo. The booking was easy and you can't miss the meeting point and great value for money.

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.

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"!
