ShoreTrips says...

Greater Lisbon has roughly two million people, but for the visitor, the city can be a delightful small-town series of parks, boulevards, and squares. You will see that most of your focus will be in the three neighborhoods that line the downtown harborfront--Baixa, Bairro Alto, and Alfama.

This half-day tour allows you to discover Lisbon, capital of Portugal, colonized by many civilizations along the centuries: Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Moors, and, finally, the Portuguese after 1147. Though your driver is not a licensed guide, you will get some limited information about the area you are touring.

Visit St. George Castle, including its surrounding quarter, and Alfama, Lisbon's oldest quarter. This city is linked with the heroic deeds of the Portuguese maritime exploration in the 15th and 16th centuries. This was the Age of Discoveries and the Golden Era of Portugal, transforming Lisbon into the opulent center of a vast empire. Part of the wealth from these expeditions was used to build magnificent monuments in a unique Portuguese style: the extravagant Manueline architectural style, best typified in Jerónimos Monastery. Some of these monuments can still be seen, especially in the area of Belém.

Lisbon has more than just monuments, however! You'll also visit the traditional commerce zones of the city (Downtown and the Chiado) with their 18th century buildings. In short, your tour includes all of the best that Lisbon has to show!

There are senses that can only be felt in Lisbon. No one remains indifferent to its temperate climate, characteristic sunlight, or delicious meals.
