Coimbra Gems Private Walking Tour

Tour Itinerary


Come to discover Coimbra, the first Capital of the Portuguese Kingdom, known as the "City of Knowledge" during a pleasant walk leaded by your private tour guide.

Immerse in its unique ambiance, learn about its old traditions started by the college students back in the 14th century, when its famous University was transferred to Coimbra from Lisbon.

Unveil the city's best hidden gems and take part in a private guided visit to the historical buildings of the oldest University in Europe the University of Coimbra!


Take advantage of your private visit to the city's "must sees" as the Monastery of Sta. Cruz, the old first Cathedral of Coimbra (from the 12th Century) and the beautiful Library of the University, along with its historical buildings (entrance fees included)!


At the end of your visit, your guide will return you to the meeting place, pointing you the oldest "cantina" created in Portugal by the monks of Sta. Cruz (on the 12th Century) to provide meals to the pilgrims of Santiago de Compostela, where you can still enjoy some Portuguese traditional snacks to regain strength after your walk, with a light meal (optional).
