Let me show you my Lisbon.

Are you fed up with the typical tourist visits? Do you want to get in touch with the real vibes of Lisbon? Are you curious about those citizens who make their city bloom, in their own particular way? Are you ready to learn about the rich history of this marvellous city by tasting the local cuisine? And finally: are you eager to feel how Lisbon is currently changing?

If yes, I might be your ideal travel companion. I’ve travelled a lot before settling down in Lisbon, and i have explored Lisbon & Portugal extensively the past years. (By the way, the result of my explorations were published in a book called ‘To Die for Portugal’.) As a historian I’m interested in the big picture. As a journalist I’ve has always written about people. Let me show you my Lisbon!

“Tourist hotspots and historic city centres are the non-neglibible background on LISBONEYE trips, but they are never a subject as such. There are other guides for that. I focus on the living city and on living people.”
