At a central point in Lisbon, you’ll greet your guide and head to Chiado — a district whose architecture offers an irresistible blend of classic and contemporary. Admire the pastel-colored facades of apartments and let your guide direct your attention to important museums and theaters.
Next, stroll towards the Baixa neighborhood to absorb the bustling ambience of Praça do Comércio — an expansive square adorned with statues and the famous Rua Augusta Arch. Amble past the quaint cafes of Avenida da Liberdade and hear of how the Baixa district underwent radical reconstruction after the devastating earthquake of 1755.
The medieval Alfama district is the oldest part of Lisbon and offers an abundance of ancient monuments. Marvel at cobbled streets replete with traditional restaurants and fado bars, and capture photographs of the imposing Castle of São Jorge.
From the Miradouro de Santa Luzia, you’ll absorb panoramic vistas of Lisbon that stretch all the way down to the Tagus River and the Atlantic Ocean. At another central Lisbon location, bid your guide farewell and continue exploring independently.
