It is a unique opportunity to get to know places that have not yet entered the tourist routes and are frequented mainly by locals and Lisboetas. Among friends, we will talk about the origins of Fado, the history, architecture, and culture of the city, while interacting with the people behind the six specialty stores, taverns, and local restaurants that we’ll visit to taste the delicious snacks and dishes characteristic of Portuguese gastronomy.

Let’s get to know the secrets and places that only the Lisboetas know, where to eat and what to choose, right in the city center and away from the tourist bustle.

During the tour of about 3.5 hours, in a small group, we will discover and enjoy much of what downtown Lisbon has to offer.
