Itinerary

Park Eduardo VII

Your first stop is Eduardo VII Park, the largest park in central Lisbon. It was baptized in 1903 in honor of Great Britain’s King Edward VII, who had visited Lisbon to reaffirm the bonds of friendship between the 2 countries.

Lisbon Cathedral Se

Visit Lisbon Cathedral Se, built immediately after Christians took Lisbon, in 1147 and admire the church’s intricate stained glass rose window, reconstructed with fragments from the original while learning about the reconstruction performed just last century.

Nossa Senhora do Monte viewpoint

Continue on your journey to “Senhora do Monte” hill, where you will be overwhelmed with one of the most spectacular panoramic views of Lisbon, as well as of the estuary of the Tagus river.

Bridge of 25 of April

We'll cross the April 25th bridge (lookalike the Golden Gate Bridge), a giant and scenic suspension bridge that connects the north and south side of Lisbon. It was renamed after the revolution day (April 25th) that finished the Salazar dictatorship in 1974.

Cristo Rei

Cross the extensive 25 de Abril Bridge to reach the Statue of Christ, one of the symbols of Lisbon. Constructed in 1934, it was inspired by a visit the Cardinal Cerejeira, Patriarch of Lisbon, made to the Christ Of Corcovado in Rio de Janeiro.

Belem

Time to visit the Belem Quarter, the monumental area dedicated to the great Portuguese seafarers of the 15th and 16th-centuries. Here you will visit the Tower of Belem (the symbol of Lisbon), the monastery of St. Gerome (Mosteiro dos Jeronimos), a masterpiece of Portuguese 16th-century architecture and World Heritage listed monument by UNESCO, and the monument to the Discoveries.

Jeronimos Monastery

Mosteiro dos Jerónimos is the most popular monument in Portugal. It’s King Manuel I tribute to the great explorers of the 15th century (which includes the sea route to India founded by Vasco da Gama in 1498). We’ll not only learn about the Portuguese maritime discoveries, but we’ll also visit the church where Vasco da Gama is buried (we won’t go inside the monastery, but we'll visit the church).

Tower of Belem

Visit the tomb of the Portuguese explorer, Vasco da Gama and the poet Luis de Camões. Continue to Belém Tower and Padrão dos Descobrimentos (Monument to the Discoveries). Belém Tower was strategically built on the north bank of the Tagus River between 1514 and 1520, in order to protect Lisbon from attack. One of the jewels of architecture from the reign of King Manuel I, it was also inscribed by UNESCO in 1983.

Pasteis de Belem

It’s not possible to come to Lisbon without tasting the most well keep secret of the Portuguese pastries, the Pasteis de Belem. Everything started in 1837 in a small bakery and you’ll have the chance to try one (it's included in the price). There is also a local ritual to eating these delicacies that we will share with you.

Monument to the Discoveries

The Monument of Discoveries was originally erected in 1941 for the Portuguese World Exhibition and celebrates the main players from Portugal’s Age of Discoveries and the days of world exploration.

"Merci Paulo !

Une journée plus quagréable en compagnie de Paulo ! Il parle très bien français, a de fortes connaissances en histoire et donne de très bons conseils sur Lisbonne. Nous avons mangé dans un restaurant typique portugais où ils parlent français également. Je le recommande sans hésitation à mon entourage. Encore merci Paulo !"
