Day 2 Lisbon

​We're going to discover Portugal's capital, Lisbon, today on a full-day tour. The city is home to many historic attractions, and our guided walk begins as we make our way through the narrow medieval alleyways of the Alfama District, crowned by an ancient castle. We'll then admire the UNESCO-listed Belém Tower, which was the starting point of many sea voyages in the 16th century and is a symbol of Portugal's power during the Age of Discovery.
We'll round off our tour as we head inside the Maritime Museum. Among the items on display is a figure of the Archangel Raphael that journeyed with Vasco da Gama on his expedition to India. At this time of year, Lisbon is also renowned for its spectacular festive lights, which will add a touch of magic to our day out. Later we'll gather again back at hotel for dinner.
