2. Lisbon: Private Tour to Lisbon and Pastéis de Belém Tasting
Lisbon is the capital and the largest city in Portugal. Like Rome, Lisbon is based on 7 hills. Its people, gastronomy, climate, typical neighborhoods, and the constant presence of the Tagus River are some of its more desirable attributes.
You will visit the most important sights in Lisbon. Your Guide will make some stops with the vehicle inviting you to make short walking routes together, where you will stroll through the streets of some of the historic districts.
We invite you to join us in this experience of History, Light, Colors, and Flavors as a Portuguese poet once wrote:
“We will now invite the tourist to come with us. We will serve as cicerone and we will stroll through the capital, showing him the monuments, the gardens, the most notable buildings, the museums - everything that is in any way worthy of being seen in this wonderful Lisbon.” Fernando Pessoa, Lisbon: What the Tourist Should See
