The people are very welcoming. Most of the city attractions are still open and the food and wine are amazing. I had an excellent day there and was able to walk around the city. To me the best bit is the main square by the river. The square itself has magnificent architecture which continues into the city and up the hills. Any of the hills give beautiful views over the city and its surrounds. Worth the visit.
Your day will begin in Lisbon's city centre. In Lisbon's historic centre the private guide will take you to visit Lisbon's Cathedral (Sé Catedral), the only building that survived the 1755 earthquake. Afterwards, we go up one of Lisbon's seven hills, in the Alfama neighbourhood you will go to Castelo de São Jorge, where you will have the opportunity to enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the city. Going down the typical streets of Lisbon's historic centre, we will take you to discover Baixa Pombalina, a place that was renovated after de earthquake, where you will find the Rua Augusta Arch and the Santa Justa Lift. In the western wing of Praça do Comércio or the old Terreiro do Paço is one of the most emblematic squares in Europe, the place that was home to the Royal Palace of Portugal for two centuries.
