Start your private Lisbon walking tour by joining a local guide in one of the city’s most imposing squares, the Praça do Martim Moniz. This famous landmark honors a nobleman that sacrifices his own life to help the conquering of Lisbon to the moors in 1147 and is an apt starting point for this tour through Lisbon’s musical and culinary heritage, because is now the home a fusion market that celebrates the multiculturalism of the Neighborhood of Mouraria.
To kick this private Lisbon evening tour off with even more of a bang, you’ll have the chance to 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. Walk around in one of the oldest areas of Lisbon, 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 neighborhood. 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.
