Tour description

We will show you our city through the eyes of a local enthusiastic guide.  With this tour, we'll visit Alfama, which is the second oldest neighborhood in Europe. It sits in one of Lisbon hills (the city is known for its 7 hills), with the castle sitting on top with a privileged view of the city and the Tagus river.

There is no better place to feel the old city vibe than in Alfama. Part of its charm is its apparent degradation, intricate streets, and the sound of Fado music in every corner. Here, you will not be amazed at magnificent monuments. Instead, you will be delighted with the simplicity and the genuinity of the people and the spectacular viewpoints.

With our tour, you will get to know Alfama, and the surrounding neighborhoods, as one of our friends visiting. We will tell you its secrets and legends, the reason why there are so many tiles and why do the streets form a kind of labyrinth. But don’t worry, you will only get lost if you want to!
