- Taste the best of Lisbon and Portuguese gastronomy
- Visit some of the city’s most renowned eateries
This Lisbon gift experience is all about the Yum-factor. There’s no better way of getting to know a city than through its cuisine, and the Portuguese capital is now firmly on the gastronomy map, thanks to many world-class restaurants, shops and bars. Sure, the Pasteis de Nata are the thing that everyone wants to try, but why not also dip bread into a bowl of stewed Bulhão Pato clams, snack on fried codfish cakes, or sample the famous seasoned olive oil, cheeses and hams from a country where the producers build on centuries of culinary expertise?
Travel around Lisbon in a trendy electric tuk-tuk, accompanied by a local guide, as you head first up to Alfama, the city’s oldest neighbourhood, for a spectacular view from the Portas do Sol viewpoint. Then head back down through the winding streets to a well-known restaurant for a few delicious tastings, before sipping a ginjinha (cherry liquor) at the Senhora do Monte viewpoint - that’s right, Lisbon has a lot of places to catch a fantastic panorama. Stop at one of Lisbon’s oldest grocery stores, try some of the local beer or wine, and of course finish your tour in the best possible way: with a Pastel de Nata, an espresso, and another stunning miradouro.
