  • Lisbon: Old Town Tuk Tuk Tour

    1. Lisbon: Old Town Tuk Tuk Tour

    This was where it all started. Meet in the heart of the city nestled on the oldest hill in Lisbon. It is the hill of fado and of the typical taverns that preserve their genius and traditional roots. From the quarters of Graça and Alfama, through Mouraria up to the São Jorge Castle, you may be lucky enough to come across a sardine barbecue on the streets. Hop out into Alfama, take a walk through this music quarter and listen to its cries. You will be able to see Roman remains, medieval houses that survived the 1755 earthquake, the magnificent Lisbon Cathedral, squares livened up by outdoor cafés and nooks and alleys reminiscent of Arab cities – Lisbon’s multicultural history has also left its mark here. In addition, enjoy incredible views of the city from the many natural windows that it offers.

    Fantastic tour of the old town of Lisbon, Tiago was very friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about what he did. He made us feel at home and was also very amusing. We saw some great sites and viewpoints. You will not regret doing this tour.
