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.

Daniele

My adventure with photography began at a rather difficult moment in my life. Due to my daughter's serious illness, I was looking for a distraction to have time to clear my thoughts. I started by taking photos of flowers and nature in general with my phone, especially in the macro version. After some time, I found my photographic path and the direction in which I wanted to develop. I focus on natural photography of women without makeup to show them that their beauty lies within themselves. My journey to Lisbon is something unexpected and a further opportunity for development, so I am happy to be in the team Let me Italian you.I am from Bydgoszcz, Poland and I can't wait to meet you all.

My name is Nicole, I'm 22 years old and I live in Cavenago d'Adda (Lodi). I attended the Callisto Piazza art high school in Lodi and subsequently I enrolled at the Italian photography institute to follow my true passion and transform it into a future job: photography. I graduated in September 2023 and I am currently working in a wedding photography studio but I am always looking for new jobs and stimuli to be able to one day start my own business. I have always had a passion for art in general and I believe that photography is the most powerful art form there can be, for this reason I would like to turn it into my life's work. I love photographing anything that comes before my eyes but in particular I would like to specialize in portraits of people or animals.
