This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Embaixada, Praca Principe Real N0 26, Lisbon 1250-184 Portugal

We’ll start our bohemian adventure in the colourful Principe Real area, a purpose-built neighbourhood developed to host the wealthy bourgeoisie of the nineteenth century, where your expert local guide will be waiting.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Jardim do Principe Real, Praca Principe Real, Lisbon 1250-184 Portugal

As we explore, let yourself be amazed by the eclectic architecture and colourful facades of the area’s buildings, with restaurants, cafes, tiny antique shops, and relaxed squares tucked around every corner. You’ll have the chance to visit unique concept stores, local taverns, and indulge in the pre-evening snack locals love in an art nouveau bakery.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Príncipe Real, Lisbon, Portugal

Indulge yourself with the Lisboners favourite pre-evening snack in an art nouveau bakery.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Miradouro Sao Pedro de Alcantara, Rua de Sao Pedro de Alcantara Bairro Alto, Lisbon 1250-237 Portugal

From there, we’ll continue to the viewpoint of San Pedro de Alcantara and enjoy the fantastic view over Baixa Pombalina, Castelo de São Jorge, and the Tagus River. Have your cameras ready to fill your Instagram feeds!

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Bairro Alto, Lisbon 1200-109 Portugal

Next up is Bairro Alto, the heart of Lisbon's bohemian scene where you’ll learn how journalists, intellectuals, prostitutes, and sailors gathered in the dark streets in the 19th century for nights of fado and vice, creating the free-spirited vibe the area is still known for today. See where old seamlessly blends with new as we walk by traditional grocery stores, drugstores, butchers, and carpenters that now sit alongside new stores selling art, exotic furniture, hats and vintage clothes, and where fado is still sung in fashionable bars.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Elevador da Bica, Rua de S. Paulo 234, 1200-109 Lisboa, Portugal

From here, we’ll make our way to the Bica district and explore what is possibly the most photographed street in Lisbon, thanks in part to the iconic yellow funicular traversing the steep, narrow street.

Duration: 25 minutes

Stop At: Miradouro de Santa Catarina, Rua de Santa Catarina, Lisbon Portugal

This area offers a beautiful view of the river, and maintains its colourful 17th- and 18th-century buildings, many of which have open doors, flower-filled balconies, and laundry hanging out to dry. We’ll take a break amidst sightseeing to enjoy the habit that Lisbon locals love: soaking up the district’s postcard-like views with a cold drink in hand.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Time Out Market Lisboa, Avenida 24 de Julho, 49 Mercado da Ribeira, Lisbon 1200 Portugal

Our last stop will be in an area that was formerly rundown, but has now became a mandatory stop for enjoying some of Lisbon’s best nightclubs. This is also where a custard tart (Lisbon's most beloved pastry) awaits (since we assume you’re in need of a snack by now). Here, your local guide will be happy to give you directions back to your accommodation, or recommend other places to continue your bohemian journey on your own.
