Lisbon has a very interesting and unique history covering more than 3,000 years. This fascinates visitors – there’s so much to learn about the diverse civilizations that have called this city home. The history and culture now make it one of the top European destinations.
The seven hills, state of the art architecture, narrow streets, and colorful houses make it the perfect city to discover on foot. While Free Tours by Foot doesn’t offer tours in Lisbon, there are several other companies that give great, entertaining experiences.
TIP: You can cover more of the city with a hop-on hop-off Big Bus tour of Lisbon, and get discounts to other attractions when you purchase your ticket.
