Making your way to the Belém quarter, you'll discover this jewel in Lisbon's crown. Located where the Tagus River meets the Atlantic, Belém is the launching point for Portugal's 15th- and 16th-century maritime explorations. Situated amongst modern exhibits and busy cafes are historical sites and monuments that defined an empire. Visit Belém Tower, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and icon of the Age of Discovery, as well as the Monument to the Discoveries. Next, you'll be awed by the masterful Manueline architecture of Jerónimos Monastery, another UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visit the extravagant Ajuda National Palace, one of the earliest neoclassical buildings in Lisbon, fronted by 23 marble statues (replaced by Coach Museum when closed) Continue along the river to the traditional district of Alfama. Passing by downtown Baixa, you can admire the most important squares of Lisbon: Trade, Rossio, and Restauradores.

Realizamos o passeio com uma guia que tinha um domínio muito bom da história de cada local que visitamos, o que valeu muito a pena. Gerenciaram bem o tempo e o passeio foi bastante proveitoso. Os locais visitados foram bem escolhidos e nos deu a oportunidade de escolher onde voltar posteriormente. Recomendo.

Guía cordial y amena, brinda información sobre los diferentes lugares que se van visitando. Transporte adecuado. Tour recomendado para visitar los lugares más emblemáticos de Lisboa en un solo recorrido si se dispone de poco tiempo o si no se posee de transporte propio. Paisajes muy bellos. Se visita el museo de los carruajes (entrada incluida) y se ingresa a la parte gratuita del Monasterio de los Jerónimos con acompañamiento y comentarios en vivo a través de audio guía. Infaltable: probar los pasteles de Belén!!!

La nostra accompagnatrice e' stata molto brava e disponibile. Peccato che non si sia potuto vedere la basilica di Geronimo e la torre di Belem, come era stato riportato sul programma. In quanto lunedì. Ma al momento della prenotazione non era stato fatto alcun accenno in proposito.
