Description

Learn about Portuguese politics, major challenges, and the juiciest spy stories on this guided walking tour in Lisbon. Step back in time to the ambiance of WWII and discover how it turned the city into a hot nest of spies, profiteers, and escapees. Find out all about the game of shadows’ best players and more as you explore the city. Choose between a private or non-private tour. As you walk the streets of Lisbon, hear about double agents, refugees, Nazi gold, royal families in exile, Portuguese neutrality, Salazar’s dictatorship, escape routes, and famous movie stars. Discover the lonely fight of the Portuguese consul in Brussels, the spy network on Allied ship convoys, and the RAF and Luftwaffe battles on the coast of Portugal. At the time of WWII, neutral Lisbon hosted the most crafty spies and double agents of the war, inspiring writers like Ian Flemming and Graham Green. Besides spies and anonymous refugees, Lisbon hosted European royalty and famous artists, writers, and socialites en route to the U.S. The city also became probably the only place in war-torn Europe where all sides were able to meet on equal grounds.
