What you can expect

Join me on this private tour where I would love to show you around the historical sights in Lisbon. I have a degree in history and love to share my knowledge of my wonderful city with you. My favorite? The oldest and most interesting neighborhoods in this city, like Alfama.

Your tour will be a mix of local history and culture. Walk along the narrow streets and alleys in the Alfama district, an old Moorish neighborhood.

Did you know that Alfama is the oldest neighborhood in Lisbon? It's the place where the Romans founded the village of Olissippo, and where Muslims established their population in the IX century!

Discover the foundations of the ancient city walls and see how this affected the architecture of medieval houses that still stand in Alfama.

Wander to a spectacular view that overlooks Lisbon, including a stop at Portas do Sol or Miradouro da Graça. Top off your tour at the gates of the beautiful São Jorge’s Castle.

I can also personalize the tour for you, to include more old neighborhoods of Lisbon - Chiado, Belém or other outskirts. It's up to you! Let's get in touch and personalize your experience!

By the end of the tour, I hope you will know more about this city than the locals!
