Overview
Discover Lisbon’s historic highlights on a half-day sightseeing tour that includes a long list of architectural landmarks, and see how the face of the city evolved over centuries of political and religious change. You’ll tour the atmospheric Bairro Alto neighborhood, visit convents and churches, and ride the electric tram to Portas do Sol, with a guide to help bring each historic site to life.
What to Expect
Make your way to a central location in Lisbon, where you’ll start exploring the city’s history in the heart of Bairro Alto. From there, continue to the Miradouro Sao Pedro de Alcantara, with sweeping views of the Baixa and the south bank of the Tagus River.

You’ll see the Jesuit Church of San Roque, which features beautiful examples of Mannerist and Baroque style, before descending to the Gothic-style Carmo Convent. Visit a series of landmarks in Baixa, pause for coffee and cake, then board the electric tram from the castle to the Portas do Sol. There, see the Church of São Vicente of Fora, the National Pantheon, and the traditional Alfama district, home to many of the city’s historic fado houses. The tour concludes at the 12th-century Lisbon Cathedral, a must-see city landmark close to top attractions and local cafes.
