Discover Lisbon on this virtual experience with a local!
Gather your distant family and friends and join other travelers on this online experience/virtual experience. Explore one of the oldest districts in the world: Alfama, Lisbon. Whether you know Lisbon or not, this experience is tailored to you.
What is an online experience?
Online experiences are live virtual tours and interactive video sessions limited to small groups.
Now that many of us can’t travel and are sheltering in one place, online experiences are a great way to connect with people around the world without leaving your living room at home. But it is also a new way to connect with distant friends or family around an interactive activity.
You’ll be joining me in my home, in Alfama, Lisbon, through videoconference. After a short presentation, we will start our virtual tour of the Alfama district, walking through its narrow streets, meeting locals, and unveiling its secrets along the way.
To guide our steps, we will follow an emotional itinerary drawn by some of Alfama’s old postcards that my grandmother wrote to me when I lived abroad (there is even a postcard with the grocery where we first shopped at when I was 5 years old, that is now a small local restaurant ‘Cantinho da Rute’).
We’ll be searching for those images now, wandering through Alfama’s streets, confronting the past and the present.
In between, there will be time to meet some locals, live musicians, and discover hidden secrets while emphasizing Lisbon’s historical context, namely the Arabic origins of Alfama and how it influenced our gastronomy, as well as the Roman presence, the city landscape transformation, and the 1755 earthquake.
By the end of this promenade, we will go back home to see Lisbon from my balcony, on the 5th floor, facing the river, rain or shine, while doing a toast to our future!
Will we manage to find all the places in my postcards?
Our virtual walkabout will be a combination of videos I filmed and edited, photos, postcards, sounds and filmed objects, that are all integrated into our live talks and group interactions in order to provide you with the experience of being here together.
During my daily walks, I continue to keep shooting Alfama’s life and people, replacing some old videos with new ones, to provide a dynamic and real-time experience.
To participate you only need a device connected to the internet.
We will be using a free tool that is accessible for everyone to meet online in a video conference.
We will provide you with all the technical help needed.
Perfect for corporate events and family and friends gatherings!
