Lisbon: 7 Hills Half-Day Electric Bike Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 3 hours
per group up to 3
Climb aboard an electric e-bike to make light work of the 7 hills of Lisbon. Considered by many to be too hard for cycling - thanks to its constant ascents and descents - you can contradict that theory, even reaching the highest points of the city. Departing from Rua Cais de Santarém, close to the harbor, head off to sites such as the famous flea market of Feira da Ladra, the monumental church of Panteão Nacional, and the Mannerist Monastery of São Vicente de Fora. Get panoramic views from the terrace of Chão do Loureiro, the Miradouro da Graça viewpoint, and the mirador of Monte Agudo in Penha de França. Your electric motor buzzing, pass the 15th-century Palácio Belmonte and the quaint neighborhood of Vila Berta. Chill out in the Campos Mártires da Pátria and the Jardim do Torel park. And see some of the city’s most iconic sights, including the Sé de Lisboa cathedral, and the Ascensor...
It was just so much fun with João as a guide. You can tell he loves the city and he knows how to go around.

This tour will focus on the most authentic neighborhoods, the perfect places to find traditional taverns and amazing restaurants. In Alfama (the oldest district in Lisbon), you’ll experience the real Lisbon with its charismatic (and intense) people, cats sleeping on windowsills, twisting streets and blind alleyways where the roofs almost touch each other. Going up the hill until Graça, you’ll find a breathtaking panoramic view at the famous Belvedere “Nossa Senhora do Monte”. After a moment of relaxation at the viewpoint, you'll start going down the hill to salute Mouraria, Lisbon’s most multi-ethnic neighborhood.
