For the past 16 years a group of licensed tour guides have been involved in a project dedicated to create, organize and conduct literary tours in the city of Lisbon. The project was born with the concept of helping high school students to aproach the portuguese literary classics in different way and with a close relationship to the city where the authors have lived and where the novel’s action take place.
We decided to expand our love of literature and Lisbon to a different ground and our new project Lisbon Literary Tours was created to help you discover Lisbon through the eyes of a novel or an author. An experience that will both inspire and refine your knowledge of the city.
Starting in January we will open walking tours in different languages, at saturdays at 10 am and 2:30 pm. All tours will require booking in advance and the tours will only take place if there’s a minimum of 6 people. The price per person/per Tour is 12€, to be paid at the site.
