Lisbon Sunset Small-Group Walking Tour with Fado Performance
Tour description provided by Viator
Watch the sun set over the Tagus River and see Lisbon bathed in the glow of twilight on this small-group walking tour of Lisbon at sunset. Admire the elaborate architecture of the city’s churches and monasteries at dusk, when the changing light highlights shades and features often unnoticeable during the day. Enjoy walking through Lisbon at this hour, when the city changes from the work day to the lively pace of nighttime, and take a fun ride aboard a historic tram. Then enjoy a Fado performance and taste Portuguese delicacies and wine.
Start your Lisbon walking tour by joining your local guide in one of the city's most imposing squares, the Praça dos Restauradores. This famous landmark commemorates Portugal’s independence from Spain in 1640 and is a great starting point to discover the city's history and traditions.
Walk along Gates Sant Antão street (Rua das Portas de Santo Antao) and past the location where the Sant Antão gates (the old city's main entrance) used to be. See the Casa Alentejo, a building that showcases the culture, history, music and food of the Alentejo region of Portugal. Then visit a famous tavern in the city where many Lisbon locals go to.
Step back in time and enjoy a short ride on a vintage tram to Our Lady of the Hills (Nossa Senhora do Monte). From this excellent viewpoint, one of the best-kept secrets of the city, take in sweeping views of the city at sunset. You can also admire the 25th of April Bridge, Cristo Rei statue and the castle of São Jorge. Then head to a second viewpoint, Graça, where you can enjoy the views while sipping on a refreshing beer (included).
Continue to an ornate church and monastery that are the final resting places of Portugal's past royalty. And then travel deep into the soul of Lisbon in the Alfama neighborhood. This is the oldest quarter in the city, dating back to the Moorish occupation of Lisbon. See its small squares, rustic buildings and dark alleyways as you wander along the winding, cobblestone streets. Stop to soak up the exciting atmosphere of the local taverns and music venues that come to life at the end of the day.
Finish your walking tour at a small restaurant, where you’ll sample traditional Portuguese tapas, Ginjinhaliqueurand wine while you listen to the rhythm of Fado, a type of Portuguese music that is a member of the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list.
