I created this tour out of the my love for two things: my neighboorhood and food! Putting together both, the outcome is an off the beaten track tour, through two different districts of Lisbon: one is the one where I live, Bairro das Colónias, a beautiful art déco neighboorhood built in the 1940's, and the other is Graça, a former working class district developed in the beginning of the 20th century. During this tour we will taste local sweets, cured hams and cheeses, seafood, canned fish, fusion food to learn about the influence of the former colonies in the Portuguese cuisine, all combined with different wines along the way, and still leaving room for local craft beer, ending with our espresso coffee and dessert! Quantities are abundant and along the way we will see breathtaking views, street art, beautiful tiled façades and learn a lot about Portuguese food culture and habits!

Itinerary

1. Meeting point - Anjos metro station
2. We'll get to know the neighboorhood where I live - Colónias neighboorhood (for the first 2 listed tastings on the "What's Included section"), with its beautiful art déco architecture from the 1940's and local spots to hang out
3. Then we'll take a public bus up the hill to reach Graça neighboorhood, where we will walk and discover beautiful tiled façades, street art, breathtaking views and our next 4 food stops. We will end the tour at Graça square, from where you can take a taxi or local bus to the city center.

A Recent Review of this tour

If you like to get off the beaten tourist track you might want to consider this tour. The tour goes into Ines's neighborhood. We had food that is favored by the locals. It was fun, interesting, delicious and very filling. If you are looking for some local experiences I would recommend this tour with Ines.
