About the Tour

For over 3000 years, different civilizations left their mark in Lisbon. The Phoenicians, the Romans, the Visigoths, the Moors and finally the Christians, led by the first King of Portugal, Afonso Henriques.

From the shores of the Tagus river up to São Jorge Castle, you will be able to feel the mix of cultures so unique to Lisbon and learn a bit more about its history, culture and curiosities. The charming narrow streets, the famous “azulejos” on the walls, the clothes on the balconies, the iconic trams, the many steps up and down, the delicious local food, the friendly locals and the soul of the Portuguese culture, Fado.
