Fado is a song that characterizes the city. In this tour, we will listen to the music of Lisbon. They are tearful tones that come from the Portuguese guitars. Fado, elected Intangible Heritage of Humanity, is more than just a musical style, it is an expression of the Portuguese soul.
Alfama is the neighbourhood where fado was born. This is where we start. Let’s hear the true Lisbon Fado accompanied by a traditional meal with fine Portuguese wine.
The route continues to Baixa Pombalina, Rua Augusta, Rua do Ouro and Prata, to the river. This estuary of light and night reflections will be soon seen again at the top of Parque Eduardo Sétimo.
This single-day tour is always supported by the comfort of our Mercedes-Benz vehicles, driven by our certified professional driver-guides.
