What people are saying about Lisbon District

I would have liked to attend a fado club. However, my schedule and those of the clubs in Lisbon did not match up for the night i had available. Fafo in Chiado filled the gap very nicely for me. The theatre in conveniently located for the Lisbon Metro.

The tour was A wonderful walk through the town. The Fado singers were amazing and the quality of the food was a nice surprise. All in all a good time for the family. I don’t recommend it for families with small children though
