Lisbon, the millenarian city of the seven hills, with the classic views they command, like at the top of
Eduardo VII park.

Cross the central Marques de Pombal square and go down by the XVIII century boulevard called Liberdade
avenue to the popular Restauradores and Rossio squares; it's the heart of Lisbon since Roman times, and the
Pombaline downtown which has been the shopping area for more than 2000 years.

The majestic waterfront Comercio square, facing the extraordinary estuary of the river, once the welcome gate
to seafarer and caravels. Close by is the nucleus of ancient Lisbon. Drive by the oldest quarter, Alfama, with
the structure of the medieval city, with labyrinthine narrow streets, steep stairways and alleys, tiny squares.
If possible, we'll stop in a handicraft shop for a taste of Port wine.

Padua church – where Saint Anthony of Padua was actually born, the very ancient Cathedral - stop to see the
church, symbol of Lisbon Christianity.

landmarks; the Parliament of Portugal – an outstanding neo-classical palace.
The tour continues along the riverside by the harbour with sights of one of world's leading cruise destinations.

...Lisbon’s history dates back to 300,000 years ago and ranks as one of the world's longest founded cities.
As the legend tells, it is a city founded and named by Ulysses, which has its origins in the Phoenician
words "Allis Ubbo", meaning "enchanting port". Lisbon was a battlefield for Phoenicians, Greeks and
Carthaginians, however it was Romans who started their two-century reign in Lisbon in 205 BC. In 714,
the Moors arrived and stayed till the 12th century. In the 13th century, Lisbon became the capital of
Portugal. The 15th century was the point of departure for the Portuguese Discoveries, an era during
which Portugal enjoyed abundant wealth and prosperity through its newly discovered off shore colonies
in Africa, the Americas and Asia. Today, Lisbon still maintaining the marks of its early history, is one of
the most beautiful capitals of Europe...
