What we’ll do

We'll meet at your hotel from where I will escort you to the downtown area (Centro). We'll stop for a coffee and a pastry at one of the oldest, and certainly the most beautiful, belle-epoque cafes before heading to the Real Gabinete, a library that looks like a set out of Harry Potter and which houses the largest collection of Portuguese literature outside Portugal. From here we will make our way…

Where you'll be

We'll start with a visit to a belle-epoque cafe before a beautiful gothic library and church before the mid-century architectural marvel that is the cathedral. From here we'll take the little tram to Santa Teresa and visit a mansion missed by many tourists before visiting the iconic Escadaria Selarón.
