Did you know that Portugal has 900 years of existence? And that the Portuguese Kingdom was a monarchy regime on the Iberian Peninsula, existing from 1139 until 1910? Indeed, the Portuguese Kingdom went through several eras, phases, Kings and Queens with unbelievable stories to tell - we tend to forget that back in time, people had the same urges and needs, struggles with marriage, lovers and so one and so forth. Throughout our experience you will have the opportunity to listen to the best stories that happened when the Portuguese Monarchy was in place while you enjoy a traditional Portuguese breakfast in one of the oldest and most traditional places in town. This is the perfect FAMILY experience, feel free to bring your kids to learn a little more of how things happened in an era without social media and smart phones.
Ana I'm truly passionate about Porto, its food and all the history/stories behind our key monuments/milestones. Those are absolutely fascinating and instrumental to understand how both our city developed and the main characteristics of our inhabitants. Diana I have been working as a guide both in museums and along Porto's streets since 2012. In addition, I'm used to host tours outside Portugal ranging from 2 to 15 days with groups up to 55 people.
A full breakfast with bread and pastry will be provided.
Tea, coffee and milk will be served as well.
Our experience will happen in Confeitaria do Bolhão, which has more than 100 years old (120 including a 10-year pause, to be precise), and it remains one of the finest spots in the city for bread and sweets.
