Lisbon Alternative Free Tour

Another Side of Lisbon:

An Original Take Lisboa Tour

If you want to see the Lisbon off the beaten path, our Alternative Free Tour is the tour you were waiting for. This free tour is a great introduction to the Alternative Lisbon city and you’ll get to see many projects of street art in Lisbon in a fascinating tour. But this Take Lisboa free walking tour is much more than street art, tags and graffiti as we will stroll around the Lisbon neighborhoods of Mouraria and Graça and admire the urban contrasts and the different realities this other side of Lisbon has to offer.
The Alternative Free Tour begins in the most conventional of places, Rossio, but it will take just a couple of streets as we walk towards Martim Moniz to feel a different vibe to the city. More than 70 different nationalities inhabit Lisbon’s Mouraria district it will be like taking the planet all at once. Did you know that during the XV century we would be outside the Fernandine walls of the city?

As we start climbing one of the many hills of Lisbon, we will reach one of...

  • Martim Moniz Square

  • Street Art Murals in Mouraria

  • Garden of Cerca da Graça

  • Street Art Murals and Poets

  • Industrial Vilas of the XIX Century

  • Strong Political Female Voices of Lisbon

  • Senhora do Monte Viewpoint and even more Street Art

  • ...and much more!

WHAT IS A FREE TOUR?

Free Tour is a relatively recent concept and advocates the democratization of access to this type of touristic experience. We want to enable everyone to get to know our city regardless of their budget.

Many people question how can a tour be free? The tour is free because there is no prearranged price, each participant will define the amount they consider appropriate according to their level of satisfaction and personal budget.
Our guides receive no salary of any kind other than what they receive from the guests who decide to join our Lisbon Free Tours. As they only work for gratuities the trend is that Free Tours are significantly better than conventional paid tours. The guide will put all his energy, commitment, and knowledge into each tour. 

Now that you know the theoretical explanation of the concept it's time to join one of our Lisbon Free Tours and prove in practice that this is one of the best and richest ways to get to (really!) know a city.

The Free Tour lasts around 2h30.
