The tour ends at the tapas restaurant.
Take a ride on a vintage Tram and admire the elaborate architecture of the old churches and monasteries.
See glorious views of the city from viewpoints that other visitors miss and enjoy the sunset over a cool glass of beer.
Wander the winding lanes of atmospheric Alfama at dusk and watch the hustle bustle of daytime give way to the leisure pursuits of evening. Be moved by the soulful music known as Fado over a plate of tapas and a glass of wine.
For your Evening Lisbon Tour With Fado and Tapas, you will meet your local guide at historic the Praça dos Restauradores. Here you find a striking obelisk that commemorates the restoration of Portugal’s independence in 1640 – an apt starting point for this tour through Lisbon’s musical and culinary heritage.
Try a sip of Ginjinha, Lisbon’s trademark liqueur, made from sour cherries and sold as medicine since 1840. For this we'll be in the old district of Mouraria, listening to Fado music in a local tavern. Step back in time and enjoy a short ride on the vintage Tram 28 – a local transport legend. Take in sweeping views and stop for a break to admire the sunset over this intoxicating city from the viewpoints of the Castle Hills, some of the city’s best-kept secrets.
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 an old Palace 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! What a fitting finale to this indulgent Lisbon walkjing tour extravaganza!
