What You Can Expect
Start your Lisbon illuminations evening tour at Marqués de Pombal Square, where a monument to the Marquis of Pombal stands as a memorial to the important role the marquis played in Lisbon's rebirth in 1755. From your coach, see the beautiful square while hearing interesting details about Portuguese history, including the 1755 earthquake that destroyed two-thirds of the city.
See Lisbon lighting up on the drive along the Avenue da Liberdade, Lisbon's main avenue. Experience Lisbon coming to life at the end of the day as you approach Rossio Square, one of the liveliest areas of the city and located in the heart of Lisbon.
Continue along the waterfront to the Belém district, home to the famous Monument to the Discoveries, dedicated to the greatest Portuguese explorers, and the Belém Tower, a UNESCO World Heritage monument that commemorates Portugal's role in the discovery of the Americas. In this area, you will also see the Jerónimos Monastery, another UNESCO World Heritage-listed site, where many great figures of Portuguese history rest.
Admire views of the 25th of April Bridge -- a suspension bridge spanning the Tagus River -- and see Lisbon's reflections on the water from your comfortable coach on the drive back to central Lisbon.
After your tour of Lisbon at night, follow your guide to a traditional Portuguese restaurant. Sit back and enjoy a delicious Portuguese meal (included), while listening to a live Fado performance (Portugal's own music genre) and a folk dance show. The show finishes at midnight, but you may return to your hotel at your leisure.
An excellent first night, really got us in the spirit!
It was a great cultural experience. Having diner while the performance was taking place.
This was a wonderful first night in Lisbon. The dinner was good and entertainment very professional and lovely to listen to. The bus tour on the way back was informative and pleasant. Tour guide made an effort to make sure we were near our hotel.
This was a definite hiighlight of our visit. The tour of the city by night compliments the day tour as you now see the monuments lit up for the evening. The commentary was excellent. We really enjoyed the Fado show which was performed by 3 performers. In addition there was also a folk dance show in addition to the Fado music. The restaurant decor was an excellent choice and the meal was pleasantly well prepared and filling. We definitely recomment this experience to all first time visitors to Lisbon.
Very tasty food served in the Fado restaurant and -above all- excellent the Fado music and dancers. Fado music is so nice and charming as the Tango for Argentina (I love BOTH).
What was not so brillant was the your guide speaking about Lisbon at night, it was a little boring and almost he did not allow any question
