ShoreTrips says...

Lisbon's stunning location and historic significance are complemented by remarkable aesthetics, making it a great city to explore on foot. This tour will help you to discover the city in the company of friendly and knowledgeable guides.

The main topic of this walk is the last 2,500 years of the history of Lisbon. Its settlers have included the Phoenicians, who named it "calm bay;" the Romans, who were the first major settlers; and the Arabs, who shaped the old town alleys. Lisbon's climate and geography were tempting to all the peoples who landed here (and who, incidentally, are still here!).

In this walk, you will became acquainted with the Romans and the Moors, the Castle, and the Alfama community. Until the present day, the old quarter of Alfama, sitting on the hill facing the river, has had important links to maritime activities, from fishing to freight handling. Its population maintains a unique lifestyle and sense of community, conditioned by urban density and narrow streets. You will also get to know the Old Town's maze-like streets and hidden vantage points.
