Description – Day 1
8 Days in Portugal: Complete Tour
For those who only have one day to visit Lisbon and want to get to know all the tourist points of interest of the City, this is the perfect tour.
The tour usually is made on foot during the whole morning. However, those with conditioned locomotion, can chose to make it by car.
We will start by one of the hills of Lisbon, the one where São Jorge Castle is located, we go on and we visit the best Belvederes in Lisbon, and we will tell you the history and the legends of the neighbourhoods we encounter, tasting the best that traditional gastronomy has to offer and visiting 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 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.
And when we feel the strength of the warriors and of the Knight Templers, it’s time to eat a Pastel de Belém with a Port glass.
It’s time for the deserved rest, after a full day, with drop off at the hotel.
