Lisbon Free Walking Tour – Itinerary
We start this Lisbon Free Walking Tour at the Praça do Comércio, also known as Terreiro do Paço, a large square that was once the city’s main harbor and is now a popular spot for tourists and locals alike. Admire the beautiful 18th-century architecture, including the Arco da Rua Augusta, a triumphal arch that was built to commemorate the reconstruction of the city after the 1755 earthquake.
Head to the Baixa Pombalina, the city’s historic downtown district, known for its grid-like street pattern and neoclassical architecture. Explore the Rua Augusta, a busy shopping street lined with shops and cafes, and see the Elevador de Santa Justa, an iron lift that offers panoramic views of the city.
Walking along Rua Augusta, we will reach the Rossio Square, one of Lisbon’s most famous squares, where you can admire the Teatro Nacional D. Maria II, a beautiful 19th-century theater.
After that, walk to the Praça do Município, a small square that offers a great view of the city, including the iconic 25 de Abril Bridge, which is a replica of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
Finally, we head to the historic Alfama neighborhood, the oldest in Lisbon, where you can explore the narrow, winding streets and see the traditional houses and charming squares. This neighborhood is also home to the São Jorge Castle, which offers great views of the city.
End the tour with a visit to the Feira da Ladra, a historic flea market where you can find a wide variety of items, including antiques, vintage clothing, and traditional crafts.
