Medieval Segway Tour | Portuguese
- Duration: 90 Minutes
- Location: Lisboa
- Product code: P0NPU0
Glide effortlessly through the colorful narrow streets with zero carbon emission. This is the most exciting way of showing you the thrilling and vibrant history of Lisbon’s most authentic neighborhood.
Alfama is a place full of memories where you can see and feel the presence of its Moorish past. The heritage is easy to identify in the architecture, the meandering streets and steep flights of steps, arcades, cozy squares and whitewashed houses.
According to our experience, the stop elected as "our favorite one" is at the National Pantheon, also known as St. Engratia Church. It’s a majestic baroque monument that took three centuries to build (from 1682 to 1966) and it is the resting place of the most important cultural and political figures in the country. Why is it so popular? Because the Pantheon is surrounded by colorful asymmetric houses that seem to belong to a picturesque movie set, is perfect to rest, to enjoy the sunlight and to take some real nice pictures.
Leaving the Pantheon behind we’ll arrive at the famous Flea Market location (which takes place only at Tuesdays and Saturdays), a big area where you can visit the Santa Clara Market (a building from 1877) and a welcoming garden called Botto Machado that has a beautiful view over the river.
Another must-see included in this Segway adventure is Mouraria, Lisbon’s most multi-ethnic neighborhood. Here you may find all types of restaurants because about a fifth of the population is from Asia!
Before the end of this tour we’ll take you to Lisbon Cathedral (Lisbon's oldest building), it would be a sin if you miss it…
