Top 5 things to do on a Lisbon walking tour

Lisbon's colorful history is still evident in its grand monuments and maze of streets that veer between the quaint and rustic. Here are the best places to go on any city walking tour.

Bairro Alto

The "Upper Neighborhood" was formed in the 16th century and, with its picturesque streets and elegant houses overlooking the rest of the city, remains its most charming district.

Belém Tower

An icon of Portugal's "Age of Discovery," this 16th century coastal tower formed both the keystone of Lisbon's maritime defense system and a ceremonial gateway for important visitors.

Lisbon Cathedral

Construction on Lisbon's oldest church began in 1147, but once they got started they found it hard to stop! Today the cathedral is a mix of architectural styles added through ages.

Alfama

Lisbon's oldest district survived the great earthquake of 1755, and so retains much of its Moorish fishing-village charm. Come back at night to enjoy the city's best bars!

Rossio Square

Lisbon's historic main square has long been the center of public life, hosting everything from celebrations to executions. It's also home to the D. Maria II National Theater.

Planning Your Visit

How do the free tours work?

Free walking tours are a great way to see Lisbon on a tight budget, and are often surprisingly good! Don't forget, however, that your guide is still trying to make a living. Bring some cash with you in case they deserve a good tip.

What about food tours?

Seen Lisbon's sights and ready to taste its delights? Food tours provide a popular way of seeing the city from a local's perspective, taking in a choice of favorite restaurants, food markets, and top-notch wine stores. Or if you're not done with the sightseeing yet, you can even choose a tour that offers both!

What People Are Saying About Lisbon

Learnt so much, for the specific topic and much more besides

Had a great tour today. I was specicifically interested in WWII Lisbon, having read some books on the subject. This really brought it to life and helped me understand how it fits in with Portuguese society today. As others have mentioned, there's lavish use of English idioms, a few swear words dropped and phenomenal character. Thanks so much. A real highlight of my visit.

If you only do one thing in Lisbon, do this!

This was the best of both worlds. My husband and I had a wonderful private walking tour with a fantastically informed guide. We learned about Lisbon's history, including political, religious and social. The port tasting was in a cozy, elegant restaurant and we also sampled olive oils, cheeses, and ham. Absolutely amazing experience that I would recommend to anyone visiting the city!
