EXPERT GUIDE
TRANSPORTATION
  • Following this itinerary you can discover the most beautiful and significant places in the historic center. Shanghai preserves exceptional testimonies of its past, not far from the financial and commercial heart of the city. Our PortaleCina itinerary will surprise those who think of Shanghai only as a modern city. Our journey starts from a place located, not by chance, in the heart of the historical center: the Town Gods temple. The temple played a fundamental role for the ancient city. The deities venerated in this place would have protected it for many centuries. At the end of the visit, we suggest you also discover what is the most famous and spectacular place in the historic center. The Yuyuan Garden will take your heart with its traditional scenarios. A must. After the visit we suggest you to go to a place where you can really appreciate the strong traditions of the past. At the end of the break where you can treat yourself with some of the best local cuisine, you can wander around the Yuyuan Bazaar and through the ancient streets of the area. You will then encounter craft shops and antique shops, where you can find objects of great charm. At this point we suggest moving west to discover a unique testimony of old Shanghai. The Dajing Pavilion preserves the last surviving stretch of the ancient walls that once enclosed the Chinese city. Continuing south you can instead discover one of the most curious and typically local places in the city. The Flower, Birds, Fish and Insects Market will conquer you with its sounds and must do. Later we suggest you continue south to visit the Confucius Temple. The complex has had great importance for the ancient city and still maintains an important cultural role.
