Full description
Become like a native Alfacinhas (citizen of Lisbon) on a food-obsessed bar hop around the historic city center, following a guide from the Praça Dom Pedro IV in Rossio to some of the city’s best eating and drinking venues.

Learn the history of Portuguese food along the way, and discover the delights of small-plate dining. Loosen your belt to wash down finger-licking dishes with local wine, port, or beer at 4 different venues. Discover why Portuguese food has gained in popularity on the international stage. Experience the relaxed vibe of bars and restaurants where the food is shared and no one worries if you eat with your fingers!

The dishes served vary with each tour, but expect a selection from niche regional specialties to all-time Portuguese classics. Savor the influence of the Mediterranean and the Portuguese Colonial Empire’s adventures overseas in the 15th century. The influence of the former colonies is especially notable in the wide variety of spices used, and best experienced with one of Lisbon’s famous pastries!

Don’t leave without trying a glass of Lisbon's characteristic ginjinha, made by infusing ginja berries in alcohol and adding sugar along with other ingredients.
