Curious about the history and origins of the Portuguese? Bairro Alto in Lisbon is the place for you, a quiet, charming popular neighbourhood during the day that turns magical at sunset. Discover the vibrant nightlife of the city, with all the pub crawls and the bars open to welcome everyone. Pass by Bica, a neighborhood full of charm with its steep streets and iconic yellow tram, straight out of the most beautiful of pictures.
Beginning in one of the most iconic areas of Lisbon, the cultural hub of Portuguese poets and artists, our guide will explain the history of Chiado and interesting stories of the famous literature figures of Portuguese history. Chiado is also one of the newest neighbourhoods of Lisbon as it was almost completely destroyed in the 1755 earthquake and is now the most cosmopolitan and affluent areas of the city.
You will then walk the streets of the Barrio Alto, a quiet and charming neighbourhood during the day, which turns lively as soon as the sun goes down.
