Full description
You have the option of beginning your private 8-hour tour with a hotel or cruise port pick-up. Otherwise, you’ll meet your guide at the Hard Rock Café Lisbon. In the morning you’ll visit the major sights of Lisbon, including the historic Belem neighborhood, where you’ll see the Belem Tower, the Monument to the Discoveries, and the Jeronimos Monastery, built after Vasco da Gama’s discovery of India in the late 15th century. Afterwards, you’ll make a quick stop at the most famous pastry shop in Portugal, Pasteis de Belem, founded in 1837. The tour then heads to central Lisbon, where you’ll admire Rossio Square and Commerce Square, and learn the history behind the Portuguese Inquisition of the 16th century. After lunch, the afternoon part of the tour starts at Restauradores Square, and continues to explore the downtown area. Experience the narrow streets of Alfama, visit the Lisbon Cathedral, originally built more than 1,000 years ago, enjoy views of Lisbon Castle, and pass through Chiado and Bairro Alto, stopping at some amazing viewpoints like Portas do Sol and Santa Luzia. The tour ends with a visit to Parque das Nacoes, the new and modern part of the city, near the Tejo River. This was the built for Expo'98, and to celebrate the 500 year anniversary of the discovery of India by Vasco da Gama.
