Lisbon Downtown Tour
Lisbon Downtown Tour
This is one of the most iconic areas of the city and is full of history. Enjoy our tour in the center of Lisbon.
Lisbon is one of those cities where on each visit, we discover something new. And for this reason it is always worth spending a few days in the Portuguese capital, because in addition to its mild climate, hospitality, and good gastronomy, this is a city full of history and must-see places.

One of the most emblematic areas of Lisbon is, of course, Baixa, where the historic center is located. For this reason, we have prepared a brief tour of the center of Lisbon.

It begins in D. Pedro IV Square, better known as Rossio, where the Portuguese pavement stands out. It is a Portuguese tradition, in an internationally recognized art. In this square you can also see the statue of King D. Pedro IV and two fountains, where you can cool off on the hottest days.

Between D. Pedro IV Square and Commerce Square is one of the most emblematic streets of the city of Lisbon. Here you can go shopping, enjoy the entertainment provided by the many street performers and enjoy good meals in one of the many restaurants and bars. At the end of the street, also entirely made of Portuguese pavement, is the famous Arco da Via Augusta. It is a triumphal arch, which is a landmark of the Pombaline reconstruction. All the architecture of the arch refers to the period of the Portuguese discoveries and the knowledge of new peoples and cultures. Through an elevator and two flights of steep stairs, you can reach the viewpoint at the top of the Arch, which has a wide view over the city and the Plaza de Comercio.

With more than 200 years, the D. Maria II National Theatre is the most important theatre in Lisbon. Art is breathed here and it is possible, in addition to enjoying great plays, to visit all the details of the room, since there are guided tours that allow you to discover the interior of this neoclassical monument, from the dressing rooms to the stages. We also draw attention to the statue in honour of Gil Vicente, visible at the top of the building.

Built in cast iron and designed by Raoul Mesnier du Ponsard, one of the disciples of the creator of the Eiffel Tower, this elevator is over 100 years old and is considered a National Monument. It connects do Ouro Street and Carmo street with Largo do Carmo and obviously offers fantastic views of the city of Lisbon.

But the entire downtown area is full of places to visit, such as the Carmo Archaeological Museum, as well as being an area with easy access to mythical Lisbon neighbourhoods, such as Alfama and Bairro Alto.
