Fado Tour & Dinner

At the agreed time, we'll meet at the Rossio Train Station to start this fado tour through the Alfama neighborhood. Did you know that in 2011 this music genre became part of UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage?

We'll start the tour in the best possible way: by wandering through the alleys and windy streets of old Lisbon on a walking tour through Mouraria and Alfama for about an hour, where you can get to know the working-class neighborhoods and streets where fado was born at the beginning of the 12th century. Our guide will explain to you the history and the cultural importance of fado, and how it shaped mentalities in Portugal and the Portuguese own sense of identity.

Next, we'll enjoy a traditional dinner in a Fado house, located in one of Lisbon's most traditional neighborhoods. As we enjoy dinner, we'll watch a show where you can listen to the sorrowful melodies and lose yourself in the atmosphere of Portuguese music. Did you know that Fado is traditionally performed with a Portuguese guitar and is characterized by its sentimental lyrics? You'll love the show!

Then we'll explore the cobblestone streets in the old part of the city and reach a traditional fado house, where we'll watch a live show where you can enjoy the melancholic melodies of Portuguese music. Did you know that fado is traditionally performed with a Portuguese guitar as accompaniment and is known for its sentimental lyrics? It'll be a show you won't ever forget.

After the show, we'll part ways, and if you wish you can continue enjoying the atmosphere of the Alfama neighborhood at your own leisure.
