Hi guys,

I’m Emma, I’m 22yo and I live in Cesenatico (a small town in Italy on the east cost). I love to travel and meet new people, that’s why I lived and worked in the USA for a year and a half as au pair. I’m always looking to meet new people and learn new things. 

I take pictures and video since I was a kid and always had so much fun. I’m looking forward to meeting you and have a blast in Lisbon.See you soon!


Hi, my name is Cemil.

I am from Germany and I live in Göttingen. I love historical European architecture. I am fascinated by the view of Gothic churches, Baroque palaces, alleys in medieval old towns or 19 th century boulevards. Photography provides me the means to capture these amazing views, and keep them both for my own memory and to convey them to other appreciators of art.

I participated in Discover Prague I, Discover Krakow XIV and Discover Copenhagen II.

After the great success of the last six editions,  Let me Italian you is ready to launch the seventh and exclusive edition of DISCOVER LISBON

"Light, say artists, is all important to creating a masterpiece. The azure sky over Lisbon, long hours of summer sunshine and golden sunsets are factors that ensure many visitors go home with fond memories and great photographs of the Portuguese capital. "  Welcome to Lisbon: the City of Light.

DISCOVER LISBON is an innovative project whose purpose is to make the participants live a professional experience for those who love photography and video making

The main goal of the project is to valorise and promote the magical and picturesque  city of Lisbon, in Portugal, through photos, reportage, videos made by photographers (amateurs or not) from different places of the world. DISCOVER LISBON wants to enrich the professional and academic path of the photographer, moreover it wants to enrich his portfolio.

DISCOVER LISBON is supported by IADE-Universidade Europeia.

The two tours of the city are organized in collaboration with Rita the Guide, a professional local guide,who knows all the sights of Lisbon and will take you on a guided tour. Exactly:

1° Tour - Alfama: Alfama is one of the oldest districts in Europe and the former red light district of Lisbon. Surviving the great earthquake of 1755, Alfama is home to relics of the Arabic occupation in the 8th century, roman ruins and monuments regarding the foundation of Portugal 900 years ago! This maze-like little village inside the center of Lisbon will transport you to a simpler time where kids play on the streets, neighbors get together on a daily basis, doors are not locked and where the cars don't fit. Come wander these lost in time streets with a home made ginjinha, discover the birthplace of fado or just chat while drinking a portuguese glass of wine and tasting an amazing cheese platter.                  It includes: Cathedral of Lisbon - The castle of Lisbon - Labyrinth of old Alfama streets - History of Alfama - History of fado.

We will see the highlights and the top attractions of its unique downtown area, the best viewpoints of the seven hills, talk about culture, literature and politics. The best way to understand the Portuguese people and the country's evolution, from its glorious past until today's Europe best well-kept secret.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             It includes: All downtown area - Best sightseeing points - Historical monuments, churches and ruins - Full Lisbon history.

Belem is unlike the rest of Lisbon, being filled with parks, tree-lined plazas and green open spaces, and is a breath of fresh air from claustrophobic and chaotic central Lisbon. It includes:  Degustation of Pastel de Belem at Fábrica Pastéis de Belém - Mosteiro dos Jeronimos - Padrão dos Descobrimentos, Torre de Belem.
