Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Wear your most comfortable walking shoes, as this entertaining guided tour is designed to take you all over this fascinating European city.

Beginning in the narrow streets of the Alfama, Lisbon's old Moorish Quarter, you will visit the Se Cathedral, the oldest church in the city, constructed in 1147. Nestling in the heart of Alfama, this medieval-looking church features Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque architecture and many intricate details such as the tomb of the Knight Lopo Fernandes. Your guide will walk you around the building, before emerging to head to the banks of the River Tagus. Along the way you will stroll around Black Horse Square, which features fine 18th-century neoclassical buildings, and a magnificent bronze statue of a man on a horse.

You will then walk along the Rua Augusta, a charming pedestrianized street, to Rossio Square in the Baixa, Lisbon's central shopping district. Here, you will ride the funicular, 'Elevador da Gloria', or if unavailable the Eiffel 'Santa Justa Lift', from Restauradores Square, to the old neighborhood of Bairro Alto, once the residence of the city's wealthy merchants. The many lifts and funiculars you see around Lisbon were built to ease the steep climb up the city's seven hills, and today they serve as a wonderful way to soak up the sights.

Continue your tour around the reconstructed Chiado Quarter, a popular and elegant shopping district, where you will have time to browse for souvenirs and gifts, before boarding the bus back to the harbor. If you desire, you may extend your shopping time here, and return to the ship independently.
