With historic highlights, culinary delights, and local interaction, it’s a unique insight into the heart of this amazing place. Meet your informative, local guide at historic Restauradores Square where a striking obelisk commemorates the restoration of Portugal’s independence back in 1640, after decades of Spanish rule. Walk past the beautiful gothic-style Rossio train station, then visit Rossio (Lisbon’s main square) and find out how much the city has changed since the devastating earthquake of 1755. Continue on this Lisbon city tour to explore the magnetic neighborhood of Mouraria – a melting pot of cultures from far and wide, and a place you won’t see on other Lisbon tours. Portugal’s seafaring past has allowed many different cultural influences to contribute to the richness of modern-day Lisbon. Pass small churches, mosques, and shops selling goods from far-flung places. Learn about Fado (Lisbon’s unique music) and walk past the birthplace of the legendary Maria Severa, Fado’s first superstar who used to sing in Lisbon’s taverns many years ago. Our Lisbon tour then satisfies your appetite by stopping at a small, hidden bakery where traditional pastries and espresso coffee will provide a tasty pick-me-up and another insight into the local way of life, of which this Lisbon food tour shows you plenty - trust us!
