About me

Hey! Its Anne here, your future Lisbon’s host. My full name is Ann-Elisa, because of my Danish-Italian origins but you can call me Anne or Ana ( which sounds more Portuguese ). I was born 26 years ago in a small city close to Trieste which is five minutes away from the Slovenian border on the northeast of Italy. Growing up in a very international environment thanks to my lovely parents and to the multicultural roots of my mom’s family I soon learned that what I wanted the most in my life was to discover the world and learn about other cultures. Despite being half danish I my danish is really poor but I learned Portuguese and Spanish since I was a kid instead. I visited Lisbon and Portugal several times in my life since I was a baby because my danish family used to live here and somehow I always felt at home in Portugal. My passion for Portuguese culture got me to study Portuguese Language and literature in my Bachelor and in 2015, when I finished my studies I decided to move to Lisbon. Starting from that day everything changed in my life: I have been living every single day at its fullest and I am wiling to spend the rest of my life in this beautiful city I fell in love with. Currently I am working in tourism and studying part-time.

My most exciting things to do in Lisbon

Exploring the local neighborhoods of Graça, Alfama and Mouraria throughout their narrow streets and breathtaking views over the city and the Tagus river. Trying typical food and drinks in authentic restaurants, pastry shops and Portuguese taverns called “tascas”. Shopping all kind of vintage and handmade product at Feira da Ladra ( Lisbon’s largest flea market) on Tuesday and Saturday mornings. Enjoying the magical sunsets over the river and the ocean from several view points such ad Miradouro Santa Luzia, M. da Senhora do Monte, M. Santa Catarina and many other open air terraces and gardens with live music and good energies. Assisting to spontaneous fado sessions in the middle of Mouraria neighborhood. Taking part to Lisbon’s celebration of “Santo Antonio” during the whole month of June which involves traditional music, dance, parades, colorful decorations, food and drinks at every corner of the city.

Like I always say: I'm not the best person to talk about myself, at all. However, since I'm so found of fighting, I'll give it a go. I guess one could say I am a great person to be around (at least, that's what my friends say!). They always joke about the fact that I can socialize so easily... That I can make friends "with a leg behind my back" (a portuguese saying that sounds terrible in english, but that translates to "doing something that should be hard, easily"). I am a modest kind of funny, but with an incredible sense of humor that allows me to laugh at my own jokes (this translates to a huge self-love capacity)! I love to study different languages so I can connect with the most varied group of people and... I guess that's me!...

Hi, I'm Gabriella. I'm a 28 years old hungarian visual artist. I live in Lisbon for about 3 years. For one month I worked in a hostel in Cascais and I loved to meet new people from all around the world. I still didn't find my dream job but being a Local Host and meet people from different cultures gives me a lot of inspiration. I would say I'm a happy person with a good sense of humor and with a big curiosity about the world. This curiosity made me fell in love with the city. I'm permanently surprised with the enormouse history of Lisbon and that I can always find new nice corners in the narrow colorful streets of the old town. I also love nature and Lisbon has many botanical gardens. It's the best thing you can do on a hot summer day to go to a garden and enjoy the shadow under a tree with a cold drink in your hand! :) So if you like art,nature and hidden places then I'm the best Host for you! :)

Did you know that people who live in Lisbon are called alfacinhas, which means... little lettuces? Nobody really knows why, but lettuces here are really crispy and yum yum! Fun facts aside, Lisbon and Portugal in general is a peculiar, amazing, warm, open-hearted, sometimes a little frustrating but nonetheless a loveable place which I keep on exploring and everyday find something new - I can't wait to share this with you! Originally I am from Lithuania but have spent more than two years here now, exploring the Portuguese capital and its surrounding areas. I used to work at an art gallery in Lisbon thus I am familiar with the art and culture scene. At the moment I work as a freelance translator, writer and photographer and I am very much interested in people, their stories and street photography. I am also an avid lover of food, coffee, wine, music, beautiful Lisbon sunsets and long explorational walks. I am very much into hiking and trekking so I consider myself very lucky that Lisbon offers quite a few opportunities in that area as well. So I am happy to share the green natural spaces of Lisbon with you, too! I have lived in a few places around the city: my current area is the historical neighbourhood of Graca which is very close to Alfama and Mouraria. I can take you through the main sites as well as off the beaten track, you tell me what you'd like to see! I have spent a considerable amount of time on the other side of the bridge which is still a largely unexplored area of Lisbon, it is a perfect choice for people who want to get out of the crowds and enjoy a different pace while eating the most delicious food and exploring the nature, seaside and tiny traditional and very amazing finishing villages just a ferry ride away from the old-town! Looking forward to meeting you!

Great Fun!

Since I was new to Lisbon, I needed a host who was a familiar with the city and the tour routes. Ann had the knowledge and she often introduced me to places via shortcuts and alternate routes. She is very positive, attractive and fun. She is also a very good walker. I even called her "a military style guide." :) In the 6 hours experience I was exhausted from time to time but she was always ready to go more. For there are many hills in the territory of Lisbon, I thought traveller can be easily tired of walking. She is from Italy as written in her profile, but her English was fluent and correct and fun. ;) She is sociable and attractive. She will guide you to your style.

Great for tourists or business travelers with limited time

I had very limited time as I was on a business trip, and I don't like big tour groups so I decided for a 3-hour-private tour. AnnElisa was a fantastic local guide and showed me lots of places that a tourist would probably miss out on. She was also very attentive to my wishes and requests and was very knowledgeable about Lisbon and its history, but also its current hotspots and nightlife. It basically felt like walking through the city with a friend. Highly recommended!

6 hours with a local

Our host Anna Elise met our family of three husband, wife and adult daughter just near our Lisbon hotel, for a delightful walking tour of the city. We were first-time visitors to Lisbon, and enjoyed our easy-going host as we talked about architecture, what brought her to Portugal and what she loves about the city and people. Our local host was happy to go wherever we wanted, and contacted us in advance to discuss our interests. We walked to the Prada do Comercio and along the cobble stone streets of old Lisbon. We took the cable car, and visited the Castle Sao Jorge, then on to several churches and the cathedral. We stopped near the cathedral at a lovely bistro called Audrey's Cafe for lunch. Afterwards we walked the historic district of Alfama looking at the different shops are artisan's wares. We ended at the Panteao National, tired but feeling like we had seen and learned quite a lot. We highly recommend the experience!
