Lisbon Food Tour: The 10 Tastings

I’ll start off with saying that Lisbon is an amazing city to visit but what made the trip was the food tour with Sofia. Her enthusiasm about the city, culture, and of course the food made the tour that much more enjoyable. If you want to feel like a local while touring with a local then look no further, Sofia will deliver.

Lisbon's Favourites and Hidden Gems Tour

Bruno spoke perfectly English and was a hospitable, easy going and very knowledgeable in the area of history.
We did not book this tour, but were transferred from another guide who was no longer available.
It was no problem at all as Bruno was very passionate and patient.
This was the ideal insider's introduction to Lisbon.

We had a fantastic tour with Leonor. Her knowledge and love for Lisbon is infectious. We especially loved all the history of Lisbon and Portugal that she taught us. Highly recommended.

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.
