Tour description

The best way to immerse yourself in the unique atmosphere of Lisbon is to start by exploring the Alfama district.
This area of ​​the city is undoubtedly the most characteristic and fascinating and allows the visitor to have a 360° view of the Portuguese capital.

Through a journey full of anecdotes, advice and personal experiences we will spend 2h30 together having fun and learning a lot of things.

Un tour molto bello con la guru Valeria, che ha raccontato molte storie emozionanti su Lisbona, Alfama e Mouraria. La nostra giovane e sensibile guru era molto preparata, si è adattata alle nostre preferenze e ha capito subito cosa ci piaceva. Il tempo con lei è volato. Super consigliata!
