Tour Important Information

What does "without stairs" mean?

It's a shame, but there is practically no accessibility in Lisbon. The city is built on hills, the streets are cobbled, often steep, and divided by stairs. "Without stairs" walks can also involve uneven terrain, curbs, or uphill walking, but we always try to choose the easiest route. We are traveling on a route that can be pushed along by a stroller or pram. We cannot guarantee that all locations are wheelchair or electric-scooter-accessible. If you have any questions, please email me and I will try my best. Each walk has a separate description of its length and difficulty.

Lisbon without stairs - The old Alfama quarter

length: about 2 km or 1,3 miles

climb: The walk includes a not too steep, but relatively longer (400 meters) ascent and a similar descent.

terrain: cobbled streets, lower curbs, rails. Due to the narrow and often crowded sidewalk, we may have to walk on the road. No stairs (neither up nor down)

reaching a starting point: Casa dos Bicos is accessible by taxi or public transport. Terreiro do Paço Metro Station is 250 meters (270 yards) away, and the Crusie Port is 700 meters (770 yards) away.

Check out my other walks, you can easily do two on the same day.

The tour is available in sunshine and rain.

Lisbon has countless beauties in store for the traveler. It is impossible to see and visit everything in one day, but one day is enough to discover the most important neighborhoods and take over the rhythm of the city. A city can really be explored on foot and by public transport. What I offer is a full day in this wonderful city, with lots of walking and a few tram and bus rides. It is a recommended program, but all elements can be customized according to the needs of your family or friends.
