90 Minutes Kickstart Tour of Lisbon

Although the weather was really bad with lots of rain, strong winds and even thunderstorms Carlos made the best of it and still showed me around and informed me about Lisbon history.

Lisbon Food Tour: The 10 Tastings

Our family had a wonderful time with Rui on our tour! Despite the weather, Rui was awesome in showing us so many wonderful places in Lisbon and the food along the way was great. We had our two 11-year-olds with us, one who is in a vegetarian phase, and Rui did everything he could to accommodate us. Both kids enjoyed the tour and had tons of questions for Rui, all which he happily answered. We would highly recommend taking a tour with Rui!

Off the Beaten Track with a Local in Lisbon

We had a great time with Carlos as our guide through Lisbon. He could tell us a lot about the city and it's history. It was our first day in Lisbon so it was a great introduction for us. We really enjoyed the talks and the coffee with the pasteis de nata. Carlos took more than enough time to show us around and point out the best spots in the city. We said goodbye at one of his favorite restaurants where we enjoyed a lunch with Caldo Verde, olives, cheese and bread that he had recommended to us. Carlos is an excellent guide and we would recommend him to anyone!

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.
