Meet your guide in the morning at the tourist office and begin your private Lisbon history and tapas walking tour. Kick-off your walking tour by visiting the historic neighborhoods of Alfama, Chiado and Bairro Alto. Learn about how these area were affected by Lisbon’s enormous earthquake of 1755. Then, hear how the devastation caused by the earthquake and subsequent Tsunami took its toll not only on the population but also on the city’s most historic sites.
Next, stop at Rossio Square, Praca do Comercio and St Jorge Castle to gain insight about the mass rebuilding projects after the earthquake that led to a remarkable revival of the city’s infrastructure, architecture, and city planning.
After an engaging in a history tour you’ve probably developed an appetite, so continue by foot to a tapas bar to begin tasting Portugal’s renowned seafood and tapas. Savor fried delicacies like calamari and fresh anchovies. Then, relish battered fried prawns and fresh pieces of mouth-watering hake.
Feel like shellfish, the options will blow you away. Available at the restaurant are mussels, crab, razorshells, lobster, an array of prawns from mini to jumbo and more. Order hot plates like prawns pil pil which are lightly fried in oil and garlic or try a dish served from a boiling pot of stew.
If seafood is not your thing enjoy other savory options such as lamb stew, classic grilled pork loin with garlic, piquant tripe, meatballs in almond sauce, sauteed mushrooms, chicken fried al ajillo, kidneys in Sherry sauce, potato omelette and even spicy snails. A must try is either the croquettes or crisp-fried fritters both classic tapas from the Andalusia region home of the world’s best olive oil.
Since there is such a large variety of tapas on the menu and you will likely want to taste many dishes, the tapas are at your own expense and you may order to your heart’s content.
