Starting from the Cais do Sodré area and crossing the majestic Praça do Comercio in our Sitways (seated segways), we will visit the Old Town district of Alfama.

Alfama is Lisbon’s oldest quarter. Spread over the southeastern slope of the hill crowned by Castelo de São Jorge, the picturesque neighbourhood is composed of a maze of narrow streets, winding alleyways, and steep flights of steps.

Its Kasbah-like layout is deliberate – this is the city’s ancient Arab district. Alfama derives from the Arabic word Al-Hama that means “source of warm water, good water”. The tightly-packed lanes, small archways, and stone-paved terraces are full of atmosphere and great fun to explore. Alfama was one of the few areas of Lisbon, which wasn’t destroyed by the big 1775 earthquake. Lisbon’s old quarter offers many things to see. Besides the castle, there are several historic 17th-century churches in the vicinity, as well as the city’s impressive cathedral.

Alfama also wakes up at night, when some of the city’s most authentic cafés and restaurants open their doors to serve delicious traditional cuisine and plenty of bonhomie. The neighbourhood is also home to traditional fado houses, where this unique Portuguese musical expression can be appreciated in rustic and romantic surroundings.

Super leuke tour gemaakt samen met mijn zoon van 12. Onze gids was ontzettend aardig, sprak goed Engels en vertelde boeiend. Ook mijn zoon kon alles goed volgen. Leuke route door Alfama. Echt een aanrader!

I go try Sitway when in Lisbon with my wife. I do Old Town tour and we liked very much! Is so fun! Our guide was very informative, he tell us historical facts that we never know about and he show streets of Lisbon in a very fun way. We even stop to drink cherry liquor, where else?? It is very easy to learn drive Sitway, becomes almost an instinct after first couple minutes. Try this guys, you won't regret it. I know we did not and will come back soon with big group because very fun.

Foi muito divertido!

Tinhamos poucos dias em Lisboa e queríamos aproveitar ao máximo tudo. Fizemos um passeio guiado e muito divertido pela cidade de aproximadamente uma hora e meia e nos sentimos moradores locais. O guia nos deu boas explicações e nos levou à lugares ótimos! A equipe também foi muito atenciosa ao passar as orientações de segurança. Valeu muito a pena!

We came across these sit down Segway things called a Sitway. Best fun of our weekend break to Lisbon. We did the old town tour. We got see the old district and streets we would not have found, with restaurants and bars. Also we got to hear about the history. Great thing is you sit all the way.... you don't have to stand Excellent guides Giu and Pedro. Highly recommend it!
