Lisbon's Favorite Food: 10 Delicious Tastings

Silvia was a fabulous guide. She was spectacular at keeping our walking pace comfortable. This was very considerate since my wife was healing from ankle surgery. When we arrived at our food stops, some were very crowded and Silvia managed around the crowds so we received timely service. She also took us to two excellent cafes, restaurants that are not part of the normal tasting tour. We were treated like royalty.
As if the great service along the food tour route was not enough Silvia provided a wealth of cultural and historical information as we walked our route. Finally, Silvia shared her recommendations for restaurants we should try and offered an itinerary for visiting Belem and then shopping. Several hours after our food tour was finished we received an e-mail from Silvia outlining recommendations for restaurants and shopping.
You will be thrilled with the service provided by Silvia.

Best of Lisbon Tour: Highlights & Hidden Gems

Die Stadtführung war in jeder Hinsicht ein Genuss.
Jede Minute eine neue Erfahrung.
Solche Geschichten stehen in keinem Reiseführer. Zahlen Daten Falten sind interessant, doch die Geschichten um Lissabon, Portugal und die junge Demokratie werden Wir nicht vergessen. Wer unvergessliche Momente erleben will ist bei Lucia bestens aufgehoben. So voller Leidenschaft ein kleiner Blick in das richtige Leben in Portugal. Vielen Dank an Lucia von Jürgen und Doris

Lisbon's Favorite Food: 10 Delicious Tastings

Sylvia was absolutely fabulous! The places she took us to sample the food, we would never have found on our own. We got to sample the real Portuguese cuisine that the locals eat and it was wonderful. Thank you again Sylvia, we had the most wonderful day.

3 Must-Visit Markets in Lisbon

  • Mercado da Ribeira: Once a famous 19th-century fish market, Mercado da Ribeira is now managed by TimeOut Lisboa Magazine. It has completely revamped the two-story market into a modern food pavilion, where you can find the freshest cod, cheeses and local wines, as well as many of the food stalls serving traditional Portuguese snacks and full meals.
  • Feira da Ladra: If you had to pick just one market to visit, go to the oldest market in the city for some great finds. This flea market has it all – from food to various second-hand items, to vintage clothing and antiques, and it’s definitely worth a visit. Go down from Santa Apolonia train station, walk to St. Vincent Church and you’ll see this huge market at Campo de Santa Clara.
  • Natalis Christmas Fair: For visitors coming to Lisbon around the holiday season, don’t miss the Natalis Christmas Fair that mixes cultural events with Christmas choirs, dancing, and goodwill. Over 150 companies sell products at the fair with reduced prices. Tickets to the event range from 1-2 Euros, which will go to private institutions in support of various causes.
