The value of things is not the time they last, but the intensity with which they occur. That is why there are unforgettable moments and unique people!"
With these words of Fernando Pessoa, one of Portugal's most beloved poets, we welcome you to Lisbon! Pessoa, who was born in the city and lived here his entire adult life, had a unique relationship with Lisbon, and we hope that you will learn more about him throughout the tour.
Portugal is one of the oldest countries in Europe, and its beautiful capital of Lisbon is thousands of years in the making. The tempo of the city has been set to the rhythm of the immense Tagus River for tens of generations. Water, both the ocean and the river, has shaped the city and its people and inspired the Portuguese to explore far beyond their borders. Those who set off during the Age of Discovery shaped the way the world eats, trading chillies to Asia and potatoes to Europe, and ushering in the beginnings of what we now call globalisation.
The influence of the far-flung cultures they explored can be felt throughout the city; in its customs, traditions, and most of all its food. Walk the cobblestone paths, breathe in the history, and taste the extraordinary cuisine, for this, after all, is Lisbon!
