What you'll do

Arrival Day and Traditional Fado Dinner

Your adventure begins when your driver picks you up at Lisbon airport to drive you to your hotel.

In the evening, your driver will transfer you to an authentic restaurant where you will experience a delicious traditional dinner & Fado night in a cosy Fado house.

A small note to visitors: traditionally once the performances of Fado singing begin, the lights go dim to create an environment of intimacy and contemplation for the musicians and the audience…silence reigns! As the saying goes “Silêncio que se canta o Fado”.

At the end of the show you will take a transfer back to the hotel if you prefer to rest, but if you don’t want the night to end, you can take a leisurely stroll back to the hotel and enjoy Lisbon’s nightlife along the way.
