First time family visitors to Lisbon? Then this is the perfect walking tour for you. You'll be introduced to the most important sights of the city center and invite you and your family to discover some hidden treasures. Did you know that Portugal had a revolution named after a flower? How long since we are not ruled by kings and queens? What architectural reminders have the Romans and the Moors left us?
In a fun way, you and your kids will get to know the neighborhoods of Baixa, Bica, Bairro Alto and Chiado while walking through the various districts. Hear some of the fascinating stories that are being told about Lisbon and its inhabitants, the ‘alfacinhas’ (little lettuce heads, as they are called). Learn about the most important symbols of the city and biggest events in Lisbon’s history: the conquest of the city, the Discoveries, the big earthquake, 'Carnation Revolution', and the ones that have contributed to build the city which exists today. Your guide will also talk about the typical cobbled stone pavement and the ceramic tiles in a fun and engaging way.
In this tour, you'll be on-foot traveling through the city center, climbing and descending hills and taking a ride on a traditional elevator (Bica elevator).
