Activity Overview
This is the time to get hands on and cook a typical Portuguese meal. It consists of preparing an appetizer, meat main dish, and a fish main dish.

In the course of 3.0 hours, we’ll take you on a journey of tastes and smells, with fresh seasonal produces, while you prepare from scratch your very own full course.

While explaining you the origins and stories of the dishes and their ingredients. The classes will be in English and/or Portuguese, and you don’t have to bring anything, maybe just an empty stomach.

We have wine (red or white - of course Portuguese), water, iced tea and coffee!

In the end you will take home a truly unique experience to share with everyone, cooking skills that you can use again and the recipes for all the dishes you prepared.

Start in the Principe Real area, a purpose-built neighbourhood to host the wealthy bourgeoisie of the nineteenth century, where your local guide will be waiting at Praça das Flores ... moreto take you on this dilettante journey. Let yourself be amazed by the eclectic architecture of colourful facades, with restaurants in every corner and relaxed squares. Visit concept stores, taverns and indulge yourself with the Lisboners favourite pre-evening snack in an art nouveau bakery.

Continue to the viewpoint of San Pedro de Alcantara and enjoy the fantastic view over the Baixa Pombalina, Castelo de São Jorge and the Tagus River.

Learn about churches, old funiculars still in use, 19th buildings converted into trendy restaurants and bars.

Enter Bairro Alto, the heart of Lisbon's bohemian par excellence where you will learn how journalists, intellectuals, prostitutes and sailors gathered in the dark streets in the 19th century for nights of Fado and vice, creating the free spirit through which the Bairro Alto is still known today. See where the old meets new through grocery and drugstores stores, butchers, carpenters, that survived alongside shops offering new products: handcrafts, exotic furniture, piercings and tattoos, hats and second-hand vintage clothes, and where Fado is still sung in fashionable bars.

Get to Bica and explore what is possibly the most photographed street in Lisbon, an area little affected by the 1755 earthquake, that offers a beautiful view of the river, and maintains the colourful 17th- and 18th-century buildings, many of them always with open doors, flower-filled balconies, and laundry out to dry. Take a break and enjoy the habit that Lisbon does not dismiss, of soaking the postcard like views with a cold drink in hand.

Next, get down the hill and finish at what was an ill-reputed area and became a mandatory point of passage for the Lisbon nightclubs, where a custard tart (Lisbon's most beloved pastry) awaits. Here your local guide will be happy to give you directions back to your accommodation, or recommendations on other places to continue your bohemian journey on your own.
