Highlights of Lisbon

Portugal’s capital is one of Europe’s most enchanting cities, and you’ll be introduced to its great monuments on this insightful half-day tour. A visit to the Palace of Ajuda – a designated National Monument dating back to 1795 – is a highlight, where you’ll get to explore its ornate Neoclassical rooms and hilltop botanical gardens. We’ll then continue to one of the most traditional quarters of Lisbon: Alfama, where you’ll experience one of UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritages. UNESCO established this list to protect important cultural representations. In Lisbon, this is Fado, and there are traditional Fado houses (small eateries or larger restaurants where singers perform emotional, nostalgic songs) on every corner.
