    I was an Aupair in Barcelona for a year, then I studied Romance Languages in Southern Germany (Freiburg), one year abroad (Madrid, Lisbon), where I extended my experiences of travelling, intercultural exchange and social competence. After that, I spent 10 months in Athens, Greece, where I worked in a youth centre and worked for cultural and social integration. Two years ago I returned to Portugal, which I now happily call home. Lisbon captivated me with its diverse and colourful history and since then I have enjoyed sharing the most beautiful corners of the city with other travellers. I believe in the positive impact of travelling and I enjoy giving Lisbon's visitors a beautiful experience beyond mass tourism, where its beauty, taste and history can be felt.

  • What you will see and do

    What distinguishes Lisbon from most other major cities in southern Europe? That's right! Its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. The purpose of this tour is to make the culture, stories and legends of the city geographically tangible and to feel and understand its distance to the Atlantic ocean and the story behind it.

    We start at the Comercio Square close to Alfama, the oldest neighborhood and drive along the Tejo River all the way until Belém, the neighborhood of discoveries. There is some time to take in the history with a tasting of Pasteis de Nata, to have a look at the Belém Tower and the Monument of Discovery. Then we reach Trafaria, the "other side of the river", with a ferry boat, where there is time to have lunch and, if there is nice weather, to swim in the Atlantic. From there we start the way back to Lisbon.
