Overview
Discover the wonders of Lisbon’s atmospheric Alfama neighborhood during a 2.5-hour walking tour. Walk around the tight cobbled lanes of this old hilly district, whose streets, squares and town houses have stood for centuries. See intricately tiled houses and hole-in-the-wall restaurants, and walk past notable landmarks including St George’s Castle (Castelo de Sao Jorge), Lisbon Cathedral (Sé de Lisboa) and the National Pantheon. Admire views from the Miradouro da Senhora do Monte viewpoint, where vistas stretch out across Lisbon and the Tagus River, and learn about Fado music from your expert guide.
