8. Lisbon: City Introduction Private Guided Walking Tour
On this fascinating private half-day walking tour of Lisbon, you will be provided with insightful, entertaining commentary and conversation along the way.
You will start at Cais do Sodré, which like Bairro Alto, is a cool neighborhood to go to for a beer and catch up with friends. The Mercado da Ribeira is one of the city’s main food courts that offers everything from traditional meals to trendy treats and bakeries.
Cais do Sodré is also the home of the colorful Pink Street, full of bars, restaurants, and artistic personalities. From there to Baixa where you’ll find the city’s most popular and best-known areas. The historic center – the Baixa Pombalina, with its traditional shops and museums.
Next is Chiado, whose eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional stores are some of the city’s main places of interest.
Right next to it is Bairro Alto, another of Lisbon’s oldest and most traditional neighborhoods where you’ll find a nightlife and festive spirit that you’ll find hard to believe in the center of the city. The streets fill with people of all ages who come to catch up, have a drink, watch the people passing by and discover all the many new things there are to be found.
Just up from Bairro Alto, you will also visit Príncipe Real. Filled with trendy restaurants, grand mansions, tiny antique shops, Moorish kiosks, and miniature gardens. This neighborhood is located between one of the best viewing platforms in the city, the Miradouro São Pedro de Alcântara, and the charming neighborhood of São Bento.
Last but not least, Alfama. The oldest and most traditional neighborhood in Lisbon, with cobbled lanes and alleys and steep, grueling inclines, should be discovered little by little, stopping frequently to savor the view, atmosphere, and authentic spirit of the oldest side of the capital. This tour will end at the most convenient location for you or at the starting point.
