Full description
Dive into Lisbon's greener side on this private walking tour through the city's hidden gardens and stunning parks. Snap photos of ivy-covered statues, look for burbling fountains, and learn about the history and heritage of each spot you visit, from its architectural style to its cultural influence. Join your guide at the tour office in the city center, where you can chat about the day's itinerary and plan out a route through the parks that interest you most. While stops vary based on the season, you might swing through the University of Lisbon's botanical gardens, take in sweeping views of the city's terracotta roofs from Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara viewpoint, or uncover hidden and private gardens few tourists ever get to see. Chat about the architectural influences on different garden features, representing styles that range from Gothic and Renaissance to Rococo and Manueline. Learn how the initiation rights of the Knights Templar and Freemasons might have inspired green-thumbed gardeners to alter their designs, and don't forget to ask for tips on other verdant gems to scope out during your stay before you part ways with your guide.
