About the tour

The route begins in praça Figueira the pulping heart of the historic city and continues towards the Cathedral and the church of Sant' Antonio. Afterwards we will enter the ancient Arab quarter in Alfama, the only one left standing after the earthquake.

The tour includes short breaks to taste the gingja, the typical cherry liqueur that the women of Alfama produce in their homes. Then it will be the time of Castel of Sao Jorge, the quarter of Graca and of the homonymous panoramic viewpoint from where you can see the most beautiful view of the city.

At this point we descend into the last historic district of Mouraria which together with Alfama saw the birth of the fado of Maria Severa and Amalia Rodrigues.

The tour ends with a stop at the Casa do Alentejo for a visit, and an optional tasting at the typical tavern inside. The tour aims to be fun, cultural and with full of anecdotes about the city. 

A tour of Lisbon's popular neighborhoods in search of the places sung by Fernando Pessoa and Antonio Tabucchi. Suitable for people who know how to combine style and lightness, culture and research of the most authentic traditions.

What a great tour!

Thanks Alessandro for your enthusiasm and your detailed tour throughout the ' becos' and ' miradouro' of the historical area of Alfama! Very interesting and accurate, a little weak your English but really great your leading role!

We really recommend a pleasant walking tour with Alessandro!

Giro per i quartieri storici di Lisbona piacevole. Alessandro ci ha raccontato con professionalità e simpatia tante storie di questa affascinante città. Abbiamo apprezzato molto la sosta da una vecchietto che ci ha fatto assaggiare la ginja caseira. Il punto panoramico top da far venire la pelle d'oca. E finale che non ti aspetti la Casa do Alentejo un posto unico ed eclettico :)
