About the tour

This is an original tour, we explore the left bank of Coimbra, the University and Historical Center.

It is a visit to the most historic area and one of the newest areas of the city in recent years (but which has its important historical and social charm in the city). Usually the tourist's don't visit the left bank, no tours there, and, so, they don't now some amazing places, traditions and histories (very famous in Portugal).

I want to give you a fuller and different perspective of the city.

We will talk about the history, society, and traditions of Coimbra, and Portugal...

Joao ha sido un buen guía. Nos ha contado muchas cosas sobre Coímbra, pero creo que se debe centrar más en el casco histórico, pues la margen izquierda no es bonita ni tiene mucho interés. Además el Tour se hace un poco largo.

Response from João:

Gracias por el comentario y la visita. El tiempo de la visita de ayer está dentro de lo normal para lo que se hace en Coimbra (pero sí, nos tomó un poco más de tiempo, porque comenzó a llover, e hicimos dos paradas durante el recorrido). Ayer, cuando comenzó a llover, y también a pedido de algunos turistas, tuvimos que hacer y repetir diferentes caminos. Coimbra es una ciudad con muchas colinas, incluso las visitas solo en el centro histórico, no son fáciles de caminar. Mi idea con esta ruta, es decir que es una ciudad con muchos lugares y muchas historias y tradiciones, dentro y fuera del área histórica. También hay sitios fantásticos en el lado izquierdo ((el puente peatonal, los monasterios, la Quinta das Lagrimas, Portugal dos Pequenitos ...). Hay muchos recorridos en el único centro histórico, y yo sería uno más, la idea es hacerlo de manera diferente, dar una perspectiva global de Coimbra, con el área moderna y antigua.

We had a great time with João! He was super knowledgeable about Coimbra and Portuguese history. We learnt a lot and he was able to answer my many questions! There was so much more to Coimbra than I thought and I would highly recommend a tour with João - thanks so much for a great afternoon!
