Half day tour tasting Lisbon's flavours
There is no such thing as traveling and not eating!
For me gastronomy is one of the strongest mirrors of any society. Food has as much history as an historical archeological site, maybe even more… it grows and flourishes through the course of time!
As a wine and food lover (and not a trendy foodie) let me take you on a walking tour up and down the hills of Lisbon exploring markets, having an espresso with a custard tart in a busy bakery or a beer with a codfish cake by the metro station or yet a pork sandwich and a glass of local wine at a counter just as the locals do.
Let's go on a journey into our and food tradition, tasting our pastries, liqueurs, sandwiches and beers!
There's a world of bites and delights available for us, you just need to follow me into the history of the traditional sites, shops and caffes of the city!
We'll start our tour from Praça do Comércio in one of the oldest caffès in Lisbon, the famous Martinho da Arcada, sight of rest to one of our best know writers - Fernando Pessoa.
From there we'll start by having a coffee and a custard tart.
Continue along the pedestrian street Rua Augusta to reach Rossio square (the heart of Lisbon).
We'll sample a cherry liqueur , latter some local beer and a codfish cake.
Up Chiado hill this time we'll look for the famous Bifana (our pork slice sandwich) mingling with the locals.
On the way we'll stop at chocolate stores, canned fished retail stores, glove and cork shops and other historical ones that are worth a visit.
Our tour will end here, at the heart of Bairro Alto district , so that you can stay in the area and continue to have fun and look for some more local delicacies.
