About the Tour

Cross the downtown of Lisbon, follow the old medieval walls, and enter Mouraria and Alfama, the oldest neighborhoods of the city that survived almost intact to the great earthquake of 1755, the birthplaces of Fado, where the true multicultural colours of Lisbon show up, ending at the Castle area or at the best sightseeing spot in Lisbon (Graça). On Tuesdays and Saturdays, we end at the famous flea market held on those days. :) Learn the history and legends of the old town most representative neighborhoods, told by real local guides (sometimes impersonating Portuguese historical figures), getting a truly personal and insightful view on Lisbon, walking through the city's narrow alleys up and downhill, lost in time on a genuine "back to the past" tour. :) Along the way, we will be visiting points of interest in the historic center of the city on an entertaining and informal guided tour where history, stories, and fun facts combine together. :)

How to find me: at the center of Praça Dom Pedro IV, also known as Rossio, our team is easy to identify wearing white t-shirts and also with white umbrellas with our company branding Live History Walking Tours.

Ho prenotato il tour per me e mia figlia. Eravamo sole, data la pandemia in atto, quindi il tour è stato bellissimo, come quando un amico ti accompagna a vedere le bellezze della sua città. Oltre a innumerevoli racconti storici e aneddoti, ha risposto esaurientemente alle nostre mille domande. Durante la passeggiata siamo passati davanti ad un ristorante, di quelli tipici, a conduzione familiare, e gli abbiamo chiesto come si mangiasse: c'è lo ha consigliato ed aveva ragione, pranzo molto buono ed economico. Il tour è durato tre ore e mezza, più del previsto, e Diego è stato davvero piacevole, oltre ad essere molto bravo. Tour in spagnolo ma ho capito quasi tutto e Diego è molto disponibile, gli abbiamo insegnato molte parole italiane, chissà che tra qualche anno non organizzi i tour anche nella nostra lingua... Vivamente consigliato
