Get an intimate tour of Lisbon with your own personal walking guide, and enjoy an insight into the city’s history and traditions. View spectacular sites, including Rossio Square, Restauradores Square, Carmo Church, and more. Meet your guide and step back in time to the 18th century, when the city was destroyed by an earthquake and completely rebuilt. Stroll through Rossio Square, in the heart of both old and new Lisbon. Look at the Obelisk in the center of Restauradores Square, commemorating the Restoration of Portugal's independence from Spain in 1640. Learn about the Carnation Revolution of 1974, at beautiful Carmo Square, where Portugal's dictatorial regime fell after 48 years. Walk through the elegant Chiado neighborhood and see old cafés, boutiques, theaters, and bookstores. Taste a typical Portuguese pastry (the famous Pastel de Nata). Admire the heart of the city: Baixa – Downtown, that was completely rebuilt after the earthquake of the 18th century, obeying new rules of urbanism and anti-systemic architecture, based on extremely innovative solutions for its time. Wander through the old maze of small squares and narrow alleyways of the Moorish Alfama neighborhood, where time seems to have stopped 1,000 years ago. Learn about Fado, Lisbon's own musical genre, while seeing some of Alfama's hidden Fado restaurants. Stop for wine and a tasting at a local bar before we end at Praça do Comércio, the former entrance hall of the city and one of Europe's largest and most beautiful squares.
