I have been to Lisbon and will be returning in a few months. This was a terrific overview of the city and its charms and history.
This is a review not of the contents but of Closed Captioning. I am deaf and need CC for any Zoom. Had I known there wouldn't be any CC, I wouldn't have signed up for this. My wife had to translate so we both missed a great deal of the talk. Will there be CC in the future talks?
Tiago's love and enthusiasm for Lisbon shines during his presentation and makes the city history's come alive.
Tiago Neiva's Lisbon: The City of Seven Hills presentation was a great primer for anyone making their first trip to Lisbon. Tiago provided a great blend of history and a description of the varied neighborhoods that left me very excited to go to Lisbon. I highly recommend taking Tiago's course.
Having visited Lisbon for a week 3 years ago, I had a basic idea of the organization of neighborhoods and some of the principal tourist sites. However, I am now planning to return with a group of students so wanted a deeper understanding of the history and spatial understanding of Lisbon. This served my purposes well. In particular, Tiago, in an enthusiastic presentation, gave a good overview of the historical development of the city and how different neighborhoods reflect the influences of various periods and cultures. This will give me a much firmer grounding on future visits as well as a good idea of some of the important but sometimes overlooked places to visit. Additionally, Tiago was able to give a number of useful tips scattered throughout his presentation.
