This was a very information and interesting presentation. Tiago's style is so engaging and his love for Lisbon infectious. I appreciated Tiago's organization of information - outline, visuals (photos, city maps. The flow of the presentation was excellent - a lot of information to share in a short amount of time but so well-organized that it was easy to follow. I enjoyed learning about the influence of geography and history on the "spirit" of the Lisbon neighborhoods discussed. Excellent!
As always Tiago is passionate about the topics hepresents. I have heard many of his courses. Highly recommend to anyway with interest in general history in the areas of his topics.
My husband and I will be traveling to Portugal in October, and I've started to read travel books on Lisbon and Porto. Lisbon seems like a complicated city with the 7 hills and so much history that I'm getting confused with planning what to see and what to do while we are there. Tiago Neiva was an excellent guide with so much information to share, that I now have a better feel for how to navigate such historic and interesting city.
Tiago's presentation is exactly what I was hoping for: he does an overview of the history of the city so that we can understand the current city, and then walks us through the neighborhoods with an intriguing slide show. The time flies by and I would have listened for another hour!
Lots of fascinating facts about the complex history of Lisbon accompanied by illustrations and photos. I'll sign up for Tiago's next Lisbon presentation on modern day Lisbon.
