See the best of Lisbon on a 6-hour small group tour by minivan, enjoying panoramic views from some of its 7 hills. Explore historic neighborhoods, such as Baixa and Belem, learn about the Age of Discoveries and the Carnation Revolution, and more.
What to Expect
Get the full Lisbon experience on a comprehensive small group tour of its sights, sounds, and flavors. Visit famous sights, such as the Christ the King statue, and journey through typical neighborhoods.
Your guide will take you back to the 16th-century “Age of Discoveries” in Belém. Learn about Portuguese navigators, and see the Jerónimos Monastery (Mosteiro dos Jerónimos), one of the most prominent examples of Portuguese Late Gothic Manueline architecture. Experience the exquisite taste of a Pasteis de Belém (custard tart), originally created by the monks.
Return to the present day, and cross the bridge named for the date of the Portuguese Revolution (Ponte 25 de Abril), the day the Salazar dictatorship ended in 1974. Get some of the best views of Lisbon from the Christ the King statue (optional entrance for an additional fee).
Visit Cacilhas, a quiet seaside town close to the river Tejo. Cacilhas is known for the "cervejarias" (beer halls) serving fresh seafood, refreshing brews and fine views of the sun setting over the river. Here you can enjoy a lunch in a very typical local restaurant (lunch price not included).
Next, learn about “The City of Seven Hills” (“A Cidade das Sete Colinas”) from some of the miradouros (“Golden Views”) observation points, and see for yourself why they have been rewarded such a poetic title.
