Description – Day 1
6 days in Portugal
For the first day of this circuit, we will visit Lisbon. You will get to know all the tourist points of interest of the City, in this perfect 1st day.
The tour usually is made on foot during the whole morning. However, those with conditioned locomotion can choose to make it by car.
We will start by one of the hills of Lisbon, the one where São Jorge Castle is located. Then we shall visit the best Belvederes in Lisbon, whilst telling you the history and the legends of the neighbourhoods we encounter. You will taste the best that traditional gastronomy has to offer and visit the most emblematic taverns and traditional trade stores.
Once in Downtown, in Square of Comércio we will analyse some of the discrete symbols of the influence of the Freemasons and we will relive the history of the Earthquake of 1755.
It’s time to explore the other hill of the City, where the cosmopolitan centre of Chiado is located, as well as the oldest patisseries in Lisboa, coffee stores and the Museum of the Filigree.
Lunch in the historical and typical quarter of Lisbon.
In the afternoon we will lose ourselves in the history of Portuguese discoveries in Belém, where the main Monuments and Museums are waiting for us.
After embracing the strength of the warriors and the Knight Templars, it’s time to eat a Pastel de Belém with a Port glass.
At the end of day 1 of our 6 days in Portugal, it’s time for a deserved rest, after a full day, with a drop off at the hotel.
