Area & Experiences
In Lisbon’s old neighborhoods, artisanal shops rub shoulders with beautiful stores, seafood restaurants and trendy bars. Located in the very center of the capital, Avenida da Liberdade is Lisbon's most prominent avenue. You walk in its gardens and on its large, typically Portuguese paved sidewalks. Halfway down the avenue, Appartement Ruben is situated in a magnificent building.
Our nearby experiences
Lisbon’s legacy through its workshops
For three hours on a customized private tour, our guide will lead you to spots around the city that feel untouched by time. The journey winds through preserved neighborhoods, the ateliers of longtime artisans who are masters of their craft, architectural marvels and secret spots that aren’t featured in any guidebook, even in the touristic Alfama neighborhood.
Mosaic-making with a local artist
Over the course of two days, you’ll spend three and a half hours with Eileen, an American transplant whose mosaic works have been exhibited on two continents. She’ll show you around the workshop, introduce you to other craftspeople and guide you through making your own mosaic. After the glue sets, you’ll return the following day to grout and clean up the piece, leaving you with an intensely personal souvenir.
Cooking Atypical Portuguese Cuisine
Meet Ricardo, a former chef and culinary critic, in his apartment in the heart of the city. There, he’ll give you an introduction to some of the less common delicacies that are eaten in Portugal. Then you’ll head out together for a private tour of the market to pick the best ingredients, then return for hands-on instruction in preparing dishes that go far beyond “bacalhau” and “caldo verde”. Begin the meal with nibbles of robust São Jorge cheese, pair it with wines produced within a few kilometers, and conclude it with 50-year-old Port. Be sure to get his restaurant recommendations too.
