Lisbon Private Walking Tour | Alfama, Baixa, Chiado
190€ per person
Welcome to the City of the Seven Hills!
Start this experience by being picked at your hotel by your guide. Along 3-hour, you will discover the histories, the tales, and the funny stories of this stunning city. Be sure to bring comfortable shoes, as it is a hilly town and you will be walking on cobblestones.
Start our tour in Rossio, the heart of the city, enjoying the beautiful Rossio Railway Station, in Manueline style, with windowed doors of horse-shoe shape. Continue walking towards Praça D. Pedro IV, a vast quadrangular space lined on all sides, except the North one, by buildings of the Pombal type.
Then, following east, you will pass by one of the most picturesque quarters of Lisbon, Alfama. Everything will evoke the past here, the architecture, the type of streets, the arches and stairways, the wooden balconies. Here you will find the Lisbon Cathedral, an old temple, believed that it dates from far before the Moorish dominion. Here you will also find St. George’s Castle, perched atop one of the hills of Lisbon, providing you an extraordinary view over the city.
Continue the tour walking down, heading towards Baixa, the downtown area, completely rebuilt after the devastating earthquake of 1755. We now reach the largest of Lisbon squares, the Praça do Comércio, formerly Terreiro do Paço. It is a vast space, perfectly square, lined on the three sides by buildings of a uniform type, with high stone arches. In the center, it stands the bronze equestrian statue of King José I, a splendid sculpture by Joaquim Machado de Castro, cast in Portugal, in a single piece, in 1774.
Finally, you will reach Chiado, a bohemian area, where 19th-century writers and thinkers gathered to discuss intellectual matters in the cafes, where you can find one of the oldest bookstores in the world, Bertrand, founded in 1732.
