Lisbon may be one of Europe’s oldest cities, but there is nothing sedentary about it, this is a bustling city with so much going on. We start in the Bairro Alto, the nightlife center of Lisbon with bohemian bars and countless restaurants, before heading to the worlds most expensive chapel in the Church of Sao Roque. Then onto the Chiado, Lisbon’s poets' corner and home of the great Fernando Pessoa. After shaking the city to its very foundations in 1755 we rebuild the city from the ground up in the Baixa, before falling into the decay of Salazar’s dictatorship, Lisbon’s rise from the ashes before the financial ruin in 2010 and her rebirth as a tech hub.
From the bohemian decadence of the Bairro Alto to the stupendous opulence of the church of Sao Roque, we trace the cities history from foundation to financial ruin and re-emergence, from discovery to dictatorship. three hours for 3000 years of history. A perfect introduction to the city, its history, hotspots, its poets and traditions. The perfect start to your trip.
