This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Praca do Comercio (Terreiro do Paco), Lisbon, Lisbon District, Central Portugal

Meet your guide in central Lisbon in the early afternoon and begin your ascent up the narrow hills of the Alfama district.

Stop At: Alfama, Lisbon, Lisbon District, Central Portugal

Once the stomping ground of Lisbon’s drunks and thieves, it's now one of its most charming and colorful neighborhoods. It was one of only a few districts to survive a devastating earthquake in 1755 and much of its original architecture remains.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Castelo de S. Jorge

See the imposing turreted complex of St George’s Castle, which stands on an Alfama hilltop overlooking the shimmering Tagus River. Venture into the heart of Alfama, following your guide through mazes of narrow streets so tight you can touch both sides with outstretched arms.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Miradouro da Senhora do Monte, Lisbon, Lisbon District, Central Portugal

Climb up to Miradouro da Senhora do Monte, one of the highest and most fabulous viewpoints in the whole city. From here, the panoramic views stretch over all of Lisbon and you’ll be able to see the city's other hills, as well as the glistening Tagus River.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Lisbon Cathedral

A traditional working-class district, Alfama is still popular among fishermen and their families, and you might even get to see some people selling fresh fish from roadside stalls. Stop to admire the Lisbon Cathedral, which dates back to the 12th century and pass by Lisbon’s National Pantheon, where important local figures including presidents, dignitaries and a famous Fado singers are buried.

Duration: 40 minutes
