Lisbon Dinner with Fado Show and Sights by Night

1. Lisbon Dinner with Fado Show and Sights by Night

Lisbon is a capital that has an incredible nightlife but remains safe and friendly. Experience this nightlife on a 5-hour tour that takes you around the city in the evening. Discover that people love to go out during the night because of the nice climate and the many bars, discos and terraces. During the night, some neighborhoods of Lisbon, such as Alfama, come alive with the sound of Fado leaving restaurants and bars and spreading out into the small, narrow streets. This music is not merely a style, but the soul of Portugal and experience this during your own dining experience. Enjoy a traditional meal at a restaurant and then listen and watch as musicians perform this cultural music for you. After dinner, step out into the streets to visit the main monuments of Lisbon, completely illuminated. Pass by the Belém Tower, the Jerónimos Monastery, Comercio Square, the Águas Livres Aqueduct, the Expo neighborhood and more. Visit 2 of the most beautiful panoramic views over the city, at Santa Luzia and Senhora do Monte. When your tour ends, you will be able to go explore the nightlife on your own!

a pleasant outing and a pleasant attentive guide. This outing allowed us to learn a lot of things about Lisbon and to discover Fado, this traditional Portuguese song.

I loved the night at Guitarras de Liboa, the singers, the food and the cozy atmosphere. Hope to return soon.
