Sitgo and Tuk tuk (Old Town and Bairro Alto)This is a tour where you can enjoy one of the oldest districts of Lisbon by Sitway and Tuk Tuk. You will start in Praça do Comércio, near Cais das Colunas, making your way to old town by Sitway.Spread over the southeastern slope of the hill crowned by Castelo de São Jorge, the picturesque neighbourhood is composed of a maze of narrow streets, winding alleyways, and steep flights of steps. Its Kasbah-like layout is deliberate - this is the city's ancient Arab district. Alfama derives from the Arabic word Al-Hama that means "source of warm water, good water". The tightly-packed lanes, small archways, and stone-paved terraces are full of atmosphere and great fun to explore. Alfama was one of the few areas of Lisbon, which wasn't destroyed by the big 1775 earthquake. Lisbon's old quarter offers many things to see.Besides the castle, there are several historic 17th-century churches in the vicinity, as well as the city's impressive cathedral. A clutch of excellent museums provide cultural diversion, and Lisbon's biggest flea market is here. Some of the best views in Lisbon are from lofty squares such as the Miradouro Largo das Portas do Sol - once the entrance gates to the old city. After this Sitway Tour you will start the Tuk Tuk one, where you will arise until Bairro Alto, one of the most famous and oldest blocks to go out at night. With 5 centuries, Bairro Alto wakes up at night, when some of the city's most authentic cafés and restaurants open their doors to serve delicious traditional cuisine and plenty of bonhomie. The neighbourhood is also home to traditional fado houses, where this unique Portuguese musical expression can be appreciated in rustic and romantic surroundings.This tuk tuk tour is a pleasant complement to know better Lisbon. You will see two viewpoints, with different views from Lisbon. From Miradouro São Pedro de Alcantâra you will see all downtown and all the Castel Side Mouraria and from Miradouro Santa Catarina you'll see the river and 25th April Bridge.After Bairro Alto you'll cross Av.
