What you'll do

The "Arqueossitio do Porto" will be opened JUST FOR US (except on mondays), where we will see the archaeological discoveries of the civilizations that lived here (from the X-VIII century BC until the XX century). We will continue to the "Terreiro da Sé" to understand the location of the medieval fortification in the Penaventosa Hill, then, we will continue to the Church of the Crickets and walk through the medieval streets of the walled city of the X century. After that, we will continue to the wonderful Tiled Station of São Bento and continue to the Clérigos Tower passing by the Cardosas Palace, Paris Galleries Street, Lello Bookstore, Carmo Church where we can appreciate its divine tile panel. Later, we will walk through the old Jewish quarter and go down the Victória´s stairs until the " Infante D. Henrique" square emphasizing the Commerce´s Palace, San Francisco Church and the F. Borges Market. Then we will go to "Casa do Infante" (old customs house), and we will finish in the Ribeira where we will appreciate the Fernandina Wall and the Luis I Brigde.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 10 guests ages 10 and up can attend. You must like history! :) As we will be going down "Morro da Vendoma" and "Morro da Vitoria" steps, and walking through stone streets, I DO NOT RECOMMEND this tour for people with reduced mobility problems.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

On mondays , the Arqueossitio is CLOSED, but the meeting point doesn´t change, because all informations about this place will be provided, even if it is closed.
