Save the leg-work and explore Lisbon on two wheels instead. You’ll get on a Segway for the day – the technologically advanced and extremely fun gadgets that are gaining popularity across the world. They let you get off Lisbon’s beaten track, so you’ll get to know a lesser-seen part of the city. The tour takes you around Alfama, the oldest district of Lisbon, which is made up of terracotta-roofed houses and labyrinthine cobbled streets. Along the way, you’ll catch glimpses of the hilltop São Jorge Castle that overlooks the city, and you’ll race alongside pocket-sized, bright yellow trams. This part of Lisbon beats to the rhythm of fado, a traditional Portuguese style of music. You’ll hear it playing as you zip past cosy bars and restaurants.
