Heritage Food Tour in Lisbon & Surroundings

The Experience

The Portuguese Gastronomy is one of the strongest pillars of these experiences and that is why this alliance comes to life with The Art of Tasting Portugal. We both strongly believe that the best way to know the country is by its flavours. It’s at the table that all happens and where all the stories are told. It’s at the table that you can understand a country and its people.

In this tour we invite you to embark on an unique food experience through different sites in Lisbon. This tour offers you a broad view of the Portuguese gastronomy in the country’s capital. An opportunity to indulge in different and delicious food while meeting famous Chefs, discovering stories behind the ingredients and visiting different places. All of this with a glass of the best Portuguese wines or a cup of tea (why not?).

Every night, your home will be in the city centre, at Verride Santa Catarina, a luxurious boutique hotel to complete the whole experience.

Reasons To Love It
  • Discover the best foodie spots in Lisbon and its surroundings
