Description
Our guide will meet you at the hotel and takes you to Campanhã Railway Station, leading you to the platform and explaining the program.

The journey to Lisbon carries out in the “Alfa Pendular Train” – the fastest train in Portugal, from Oporto Campanhã train station to the Oriente Railway Station in Lisbon. Once you arrive in Lisbon, enjoy your free time to have lunch (not included) at any of the local restaurants in the surrounding area.

The City Tour in Lisbon begins at 1h30 pm. The Portuguese capital highlights boasts of numerous reasons like a rich heritage, historical neighbourhoods, the culture of fado and the delicious traditional sweets, Pastéis de Belém.

In Belém, you could spend a lot of time contemplating The Monastery of Jerónimos, among the most appealing and prominent monuments of the city, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage. Make sure to notice the tombs of popular personalities from Portugal History such as Vasco da Gama, Luiz de Camões and among others, like King D.Manuel.

At the National Coach Museum, cherish the most remarkable collection of the World within the genre. This visit enables you to understand the technical and artistic evolution of the way of transport used by the Europeans.

Next to the Tagus River, you will discover The Belém Tower, an emblematic landmark of the Portuguese Discoveries: a fortress of the Tagus estuary and a beginning point for navigators such as Vasco Da Gama for India and Pedro Álvares Cabral for Brazil, connecting Europe to the rest of the world. Next, The Monument of Discoveries, an imposing monument shaped as a caravel that exhibits important personalities linked to the Discoveries and the glorious past of Portugal.

Enjoy the stunning Comércio Square in the city centre, one of the largest European Squares and royal palace of Portugal, now used as an office for Portuguese Government Ministries. Visit the oldest café in town, the famous “Martinho da Arcada”, which was frequented by the known Portuguese writer, Fernando Pessoa.

We arrived in Alfama, certainly one of the oldest and most traditional neighbourhoods in the city, a place of hidden corners and narrow streets, where it is worth relinquishing. Take a short break and add flavour to your guided tour tasting the popular Port Wine in a local shop.

Along the way back to Marquês de Pombal Square, ponder the beautiful squares of D. Pedro IV, referred to as Rossio, and Restauradores before entering in Liberdade Avenue, the Lisbon version of the Parisian Champs-Elysées flanked by lovely old buildings, theatres and large luxury shops.
