Lisbon is notable for its success in preserving its elegant monuments and heritage of a rich past, while retaining its charmingly relaxed and human feel.

We will start out at the central Praça do Comercio, which overlooks the estuary of the Tagus River.

Right after, a trip to the Jeronimos Monastery takes us back in time to the Portuguese age of discovery.

We will then move to the more cosmopolitan and modern area of Lisbon, centered around the Avenida da Liberdade.

There we will visit the Praça da Figueira and Praça de Pedro IV, which houses the Maria II Theater.

We will continue with the astonishing Neo-Manueline façade of Rossio train station and the impressive Praça do Marques de Pombal.

The tour will end with a relaxed walk around the Bairro Alto and Chiado neighborhoods.

Modernity and tradition are finely blended in their old streets, where churches conceal unexpected gems of baroque beauty.
