Meet a guide at Praça dos Restauradores, among the city’s most imposing squares. Then, set out on foot along the Rua das Portas de Santo Antao to Casa Alentejo and the city’s historic gates.
Duck into a celebrated tavern that’s a favorite with locals before hopping on to Tram 28 to Castle Hill, the perfect place for admiring gorgeous sunset views of the city. From there, continue to a landmark church and monastery on your way to the Alfama neighborhood, with intimate squares and narrow streets dating back to the Moorish period.
The route concludes at a small restaurant, where you’ll dine on Portuguese tapas and wine during a fado show—the Portuguese music is on the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list. Toast the evening with a glass of ginjinha, a flavorful cherry liqueur, as you enjoy the distinctive rhythms of Portugal’s traditional music.
