      4 Hours
      Shore Excursion with Guaranteed Return to Ship
      From (USD)
      • Belem: See the decorative Tower of Belem and the ship-like Monument of the Discoveries in the harbor where the legendary Portuguese world-explorers set sail.
      • Jeronimos Church: Built to commemorate Vasco de Gama's 1498 voyage to India, this hyper-ornate structure is the crown jewel of Portugal's Moorish-Gothic "Manueline" architecture. Inside, it's every bit as fantastically detailed.
      • Alfama: The oldest city's oldest neighborhood is all narrow cobbled streets, ancient walls and landmarks, and small cafes and fado bars. The perfect place to soak up the soul of Lisbon.

      Designed for couples, families, and even large groups to tour by private vehicle. Contact for available dates and pricing.

      Helpful hints

      Lisbon is hilly and some areas have cobblestones so we recommend avoiding shoes with heels.

      Perched out where the Continent ends at the Atlantic, Lisbon practically begs bold sailors to set out for whatever's on the other side of all that water. And in the 15th- and 16th-century Age of Discovery they did so in droves – with Portuguese explorers finding the ocean route to India, the ports of West Africa, the Atlantic archipelagos, Brazil, and a few other places. Like Japan. And California.

      But this town was already ancient by then, having a long history with the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Visigoths, and Moors before 12th-century Crusaders prevailed and established Lisbon as the political and cultural center of modern Portugal.

      This guided tour reveals the distinct look and flavor of a capital stretched across steep seaside hills – and visits many of Lisbon's most remarkable sites and neighborhoods, offering an amazing vista from the Alto do Parque overlook, high above the harbor.

      In the landmark-laden Belem district on the River Tagus, you'll have an inside visit of Jeronimos Monastery. It took most of the 1500s to build (all that over-the-top detailed stonework, no doubt), and housed an order of monks who specialized in praying for the King and all the king's sailors. Lucky for us, it survived Lisbon's massive 1755 earthquake with barely a scratch.

      In Alfama, the oldest quarter of this antique city, you'll enjoy a guided walk among narrow lanes rich with Moorish-styled residences, a medieval Cathedral, city wall ruins, and a castle or two. Then, with the haunting strains of fado music in the background, and the aromas of liberally spiced grilled beef and fish wafting from neighborhood cafes, you'll have time to conduct your own brief voyage of discovery.

      Watch out for the rhino

      In 1515, the governor of Portugal's India colony re-gifted a rhino given by a local sultan to King Manuel I in Lisbon. All of Europe was abuzz over this strange creature, not seen live for generations. When the thrill died down, Manuel sent the rhino to Pope Leo X as a goodwill gesture, but the ship sank and all perished. A lame attempt to present the dead stuffed beast to the Pontiff was rebuffed. Look for an immortal stone rhino carved into one of the Belem Tower's turrets.
