We really enjoyed this tour of Lisbon which included drinks in several great spots, food throughout, and finished with an hour of music, food and wine high up in Barrio Alto.

Itinerary:
Start your Lisbon walking tour of this whimsical city by joining a local guide in one of the city’s most imposing squares, the Praça dos Restauradores. This famous landmark commemorates the restoration of Portugal’s independence back in 1640 and is an apt starting point for this tour through Lisbon’s musical and culinary heritage.

Step back in time and enjoy a short ride on the vintage Tram 28 – a local transport legend. Take in sweeping views of this intoxicating city from the viewpoint of Senhora do Monte and Graça, some of the city’s best-kept secrets.

Stop to admire the Sunset while having a refreshing beer at the viewpoint of Graça

Continue on to visit an ornate church and monastery that are the final resting place of Portugal’s past royalty. Next, travel deep into the soul of Lisbon while exploring the Alfama neighbourhood. This is the oldest quarter in the city, dating back to the Moorish occupation of Lisbon. Explore Alfama’s small squares, rustic buildings and dark alleyways as you wander along the winding, cobblestone streets. Stop to breathe in the exciting atmosphere as the local taverns and music venues come to life for another evening of melodic tunes and gastronomic delights.

Stop to reflect on the beauty of the River Tagus then continue on to finish this Lisbon walking tour in a small restaurant that serves up daily doses of delicious food and Fado music to enthusiastic audiences.

Sample traditional Portuguese tapas and wine while appreciating a performance of Fado Vadio (amateur Fado), a quintessential Lisbon experience that you wont get on other Lisbon tours! Finish with a sip of Ginjinha, Lisbon’s trademark liqueur, made from sour cherries and sold as medicine since 1840. What a fitting finale to this indulgent Lisbon walkjing tour extravaganza!
