Didn’t actually see the ruins because apparently you need to reserve your spot ahead of time and we were turned away at the door saying they were all booked up for the rest of the day. It doesn’t state ANYWHERE on their website that you...More
If you love archaeology, you can’t miss this place in Lisbon. You’ll be guided through centuries of history, and everything is free. Just book in advance as the tours may be all booked. The entrance is on this street but on the parallel one.
This museum is based on the artefacts found when the bank next door was doing work. it gives an insight into how the area looked in roman times with much of the roman buildings still clear.
Its free entry but the tours are done in...More
We searched this place out to see the underground ruins obviously, BUT, we were blown away by the beauty of the building itself. It is the original Bank of Portugal. You don't have to do a tour, you can just wander round by yourself which...More
Not usually a fan of yours but this was as exception. A lovely your guide who provided lots of information on the ruins under the building. It's free but you have to book a time slot and the groups are small so you may have...More
Interesting historical site of a Roman fish factory with remarkable artifacts ranging from 5th century BC to 12th century. Unfortunately our tour guide was absolutely despicable. Our group consisted of two families with very young children (including us) and a couple. The guide seemed utterly...More
This was a very insightful, guided and - best of all - free tour that lasted between 30 minutes and an hour, and taught us a lot about Baixa's history before and after the Great Earthquake. The underground sardine "factory" was fascinating, and we loved...More
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the
imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!

Super frustrating because you’re right it says ABSOLUTELY NO WHERE that you need to book in advance. But based on my mistake (haha) you have to go to the reception desk (on Rua dos Correiros) and book a time and then the actual entrance to the museo is on Rua Augusta (the main strip). Hope it helps!
We didn't make a reservation but turned up at the door at the start time. There were some police outside the door saying it was closed, but we checked with the receptionist in the bank who advised us just to wait outside... More
We didn't make a reservation but turned up at the door at the start time. There were some police outside the door saying it was closed, but we checked with the receptionist in the bank who advised us just to wait outside the door and the tour guide would come out to collect us. At exactly 10am the door opened and our tour guide came out. She was a qualified archaeologist who conducted the tour in English. There were 2 other couples on the tour who all spoke English (although 1couple were portugese).
The tour is fascinating, one of the best things, and quite amazing to think what you might be walking over in this wonderful city.
We had no issue with Language in Portugal as most people speak English fluently.
