Today, you’ll hop into an environmentally friendly tuk-tuk for a tour around the City of Seven Hills. Not only are the tuk-tuks 100 per cent electric, they’re also small enough to zip around the city’s tree-lined avenues and narrow backstreets. Sights along the way include the gothic-style Jerónimos Monastery, the chess piece-like Belém Tower, and the São Jorge Castle that overlooks the city from its hilltop perch. In the Chiado area, you’ll come across dinky boutiques and old-world cafés, plus there’ll be a chance to taste bica, the Portuguese answer to espresso. The district of Alfama, the oldest in Lisbon, is on the agenda, too. You’ll trundle through cobblestone streets past its string of bars playing traditional Portuguese music called fado.
