Said to be built on 7 hills like Rome, Lisbon is an amphitheatre that looks down onto the Tagus, the river it has always depended on. There is history oozing out of its romantic avenues, old Moorish quarters, Roman underpinnings and Manueline, Baroque and Gothic monuments, off-set by some of the boldest modern buildings by local and international architects.
This is a cosmopolitan centre of commerce that will appeal to your senses and to your gourmet instincts. It is a palette of colours where the sun shines the whole year round (almost!).
This tour will drive you through the most traditional quarters of Lisbon with their winding streets and picturesque corners. Discover the village atmosphere of Alfama and Mouraria in contrast to the elegant and noble buildings of Chiado and Lapa.
