Portugal Walking Tour

Portugal was once a powerful kingdom that dominated worldwide merchant routes. Nowadays it’s more of a relaxed, friendly, welcoming country with tons of epic coastline, beautiful towns with cobbled streets, an interior built for adventurers, and a foodie haven. Whether you’re hanging out in the capital Lisbon city or wandering around Porto sampling some fine wines, a Portugal walking tour will take you to all the best sightseeing destinations.

Lisbon is where most part start their Portugal travels, and with good reason. This fantastic little town is rich in heart but amazingly affordable. The historic center here is easily explored. Check out the Moorish Castelo de Sao Jorge, and the Bairro Alto of the upper town. You’ll find a lot of great nightlife and dining options here, albeit a little touristy. Then there’s the Baixa, the lower town, with its gorgeous eighteenth-century buildings. With a guide, you can explore the west’s city center, like Sao Pedro de Alcantara, Santa Catarina, and Santa Justa. If you’re a poet and you know it, you can swing by Fernando Pessoa’s birthplace and start a walk through some of his favourite places around the city.

Next up: visiting Porto is a must-do. It was classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1996, and then became the European Capital of Culture in 2001. On a Portugal walking tour you’ll be able to take in the culture, architecture, and urban landscape of this gorgeous town. With a knowledgeable guide, you’ll learn all about the Baroque and Rocaille art and architecture, and explore the oldest parts of the city such as the Ribeira. The views of the Douro River from here are the best! Be sure to also check out the fascinating ballrooms of the Palacio da Bolsa, with its impressive granite façade. Walk down Avenida dos Aliados and enjoy all the Neoclassical buildings!
