Visit the sites destroyed by the earthquake in 1755 destroyed Lisbon and see the ones which survived. The mega-earthquake of 1755 and the tidal wave that followed had devastating effects, resulting in enormous material and human losses. The destruction of the city's buildings led to an unprecedented reconstruction program and created an opportunity for the development of new solutions, not only at the level of architecture and civil engineering, but also in the field of town planning.

Highlights include Alfama, Praca do Comercio, St Jorge Castle, Rossio, Chiado, Bairro Alto.

Tapas means "cover". Portugal is famous for its fish and shellfish, and a Tapas bar is a great place to sample the array. Fried fish, from tiny fresh anchovies and rings of tender squid, to chunks of fresh hake and batter-dipped prawns are waiting to entice you.

The selection of shellfish will astound you. Clams and razorshells, mussels, prawns ranging in size from tiny to jumbo, crab, lobster and more. There will be a variety of hot dishes. Some are cooked to order, such as prawns pil pil, sizzled with garlic and oil or garlicky grilled pork loin, while others are dished out of a bubbling stew-pot.

You can savor meatballs in almond sauce, kidneys in Sherry sauce, sauteed mushrooms, chicken fried al ajillo, with garlic; lamb stew; broad beans with ham; piquant tripe, spicy snails, and, of course, tortilla, a thick round potato omelette. Crisp-fried fritters and croquettes are other great Tapas of Andalusia, which produces the world's finest olive oil.

Due to the large array available and to allow you to make the most of your Tapas experience, the Tapas is not included in the tour cost and you will order your choices at the restaurant.

The personalized tour by Ms. Cristina Brito was remarkably impressive even though there was a little drizzle which eventually tapered off. Inspite of being a Sunday and the usual places being closed, we had the luck of seeing a 1920's movie filming set, an opportune religious celebration procession and a taste of good sushi since the tapas restaurants were closed. We also had a conversation with a NATO guard on duty and of course picture taking. The elevator building in the center of town was a unique experience.

This was a very thorough and educational tour. The tour guide was very knowledeable of the history and culture of Lisbon and was familiar with all the nooks and crannies of this beautiful and quaint city. I advise anyone taking this tour to wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk, walk, walk. But well worth it!
