What You Can Expect
Walk along Gates Sant Antão street (Rua das Portas de Santo Antao) and past the location where the Sant Antão gates (the old city's main entrance) used to be. See the Casa Alentejo, a building that showcases the culture, history, music and food of the Alentejo region of Portugal. Then visit a famous tavern in the city where many Lisbon locals go to.
Step back in time and enjoy a short ride on a vintage tram to Our Lady of the Hills (Nossa Senhora do Monte). From this excellent viewpoint, one of the best-kept secrets of the city, take in sweeping views of the city at sunset. You can also admire the 25th of April Bridge, Cristo Rei statue and the castle of São Jorge. Then head to a second viewpoint, Graça, where you can enjoy the views while sipping on a refreshing beer (included).
Continue to an ornate church and monastery that are the final resting places of Portugal's past royalty. And then travel deep into the soul of Lisbon in the Alfama neighborhood. This is the oldest quarter in the city, dating back to the Moorish occupation of Lisbon. See its small squares, rustic buildings and dark alleyways as you wander along the winding, cobblestone streets. Stop to soak up the exciting atmosphere of the local taverns and music venues that come to life at the end of the day.
Finish your walking tour at a small restaurant, where you’ll sample traditional Portuguese tapas, Ginjinha liqueur and wine while you listen to the rhythm of Fado, a type of Portuguese music that is a member of the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list.
I had the pleasure of attending the Sunset Fado walking tour of Lisbon with Joana this week. It turned out I was the only one that day so I ended up getting a private tour! Joana was incredible, with plenty of knowledge and an obvious love for Lisbon and for Fado. I enjoyed every minute and now I have a great appreciation for Fado and have also made a new friend. :))
The tour guide was perfect -- knowledgeable and friendly. The group was perfectly-sized and enjoyable as well (two Danes, a German, a few Brits, and one US). I recommend this evening walking tour because the areas we visited are best seen in the glow of streetlights. (The middle of the day is just not the right atmosphere for ginjinha and fado!)
