"When the project was proposed, I was not very convinced, but I was curious to do/try something different...and now I am really happy to have said "YES"! It is an indescribable experience, one of that experience you take with you for the rest of your life and you'd suggest to everyone. I've met many special people that I hope to see again soon and I've had the opportunity to talk with people who share my same interests and I'd go back I'd do this experience other 1000 times!"
Federica from Italy (Discover Lisbon I)
"When I left to Lisbon and for this project at the beginning I was a bit skeptical, I must admit. Mostly I decided to join only to see the city, I expected nothing more. Moreover I had always big problems in working or staying in a group...so my mood was like this...instead this project was AMAZING! I learnt so many new things both about photography and about myself as a person. I understood what I like doing and what not, where I have more talent and also where I'd like to go. Then I found a close group of fantastic people and each of them gave me something different. Thanks Gabriele and Massimiliano for the organization and for the great idea to give these experience to people! A big thanks goes also to the wonderful girls with who I share the room in these last days!"
Andrea from Argentina (Discover Lisbon I)
"One of the best experiences of my life. if you're looking to explore a city and improve your photography skills I would say go for it with letmeitalianyou ", Amulya said.
What our participants said about their experiences in Discover Lisbon
"When I was in Krakow with them, we were talking about the new destinations and kidding I said "why not Portugal?". Few months later they reached me with Lisbon and I could not say no". This trip, as the previous ones, was amazing! Great adventures, a fantastic experience that allowed me to discover a new city, new people and met old friends. I was ready to walk but this time I was not prepared ahahah but once again it was worth it! Thanks again for this amazing experience and for giving me the opportunity to see a new city! Thanks to all my travelmates and especially to the room 302!"
Martina from Italy (Discover Lisbon I)
"Another trip, another marvelous place explored with Let me Italian you. I gained a lot of memories, new ideas and met new amazing friends. It was my 4th project with You Guys, thank you very much Gabri and Massi for this great experience in Lisbon.
I hope, see you soon! See you in another adventure! A presto!
Ludmila from Poland (Discover Lisbon I)
"Credo molto al destino e poco ai pensieri condivisi, specialmente se ciò avviene all’interno dei social network. Ma questa volta mi sento talmente piena di allegria (e allergia) che sto esondando, e non riesco a trattenermi. Sono certa che ogni persona entra nella vita di ognuno di noi per un motivo, e la strada che sto percorrendo mi ha fatto incontrare, lungo il cammino, i personaggi più difficili da trovare nella vita di ogni giorno: i compagni di viaggio. Dalla prima volta che ci siamo incontrati è passato quasi un anno, e ringrazio quel periodo buio che l’anno scorso mi ha trasportato a Budapest e mi ha fatto conoscere questi straordinari esseri umani. La mia gioia nasce dal fatto che ogni volta che li incontro, sembra non essere passato neanche un secondo dall’ultimo. Condividere con la mia famiglia viaggiatrice le fortune e le sfortune che una nuova avventura può portare, mi conferma il fatto che sono circondata da persone uniche, coraggiose e piene di energie. Come non ringraziare di tutto questo ognuno di voi, compresi Antonello e Giada , Gabriele, Massimiliano e Divia. Alla prossima avventura!"
Cecilia from Italy (Discover Lisbon I)
"My short memory take me to show always what I see, what I eat, the street where I walk in and the people I meet. If you would like to challenge yourself, alone or with a friend, a luggage in one hand and a camera in the other one, looking for new faces and experiences, Gabriele and Massimiliano are an excellent starting point! See you at the next adventure!"
Alessandra from Italy (Discover Lisbon I)
"Ho 43 anni e mi confronto spesso con ragazze più giovani di me soprattutto per la mia passione fotografica. Il viaggio a Lisbona mi ha dato un'altra opportunità per conoscerne meglio alcune , il carattere, l'esperienza e la famiglia di ognuna di loro ne ha temprato l'essenza. La loro energia, la voglia di conoscenza, l'autonomia e la responsabilità trapelata mi hanno ridato speranza verso la nuova generazione. È proprio vero che chi torna da un viaggio non è mai la stessa persona che era partita. In bocca al lupo alle mie guerriere e non smettete mai di sognare, Cecilia, Martina, Divia!
Alla prossima avventura!
Guendalina from Italy (Discover Lisbon I)
"I have only positive things to say about Discover Lisbon. First of all it doesn't matter that you're a professional photographer: the most important thing is to be passionated about photography and have the will to learn. Before to leave I was really worried about the two shootings in agenda, an unknow area for me: I've jumped on it and the result wasn't unexpected! I had so much fun and I challenged myself, in an atmosphere free of judgements or expectations! Another proble: I am an introvert person and the idea to live 4 days with unknow people didn't make me calm...instead I felt myself very good, I met super interesting and nice people! The organizers are super available and competent, the activities in agenda are very interesting and instructive! Discover Lisbon has been something unexpected and I can't wait to repeat this experience! Hyper recommended!"
Annalisa from Italy (Discover Lisbon I)
"Eventually everything comes to an end, and what stays with you are the memories. Thank you again for these days Gabriele and Massimiliano, even though we were unlucky with the weather (I swear this weather is not normal in Portugal!!). Thanks also to the other participants, I had the chance to see some old faces and meet new ones, i definitely leave Lisbon with a warm heart. See you in another adventure! A presto!
Andreia from Portugal (Discover Lisbon I)

Luca from Italy (Discover Lisbon III)
"Quando sono stata invitata a partecipare al progetto di Barcellona, sono stata lusingata perché le mie foto hanno avuto il loro effetto, cosi un anno fà quando iniziò la mia avventura com Let me Italian you. Sono entrata in punta di piedi, ma già dal primo impatto è stato positivo. Al secondo progetto Discover Lisbona ho avuto la conferma, un esperienza fantastica, ho conosciuto persone meravigliose che mi porterò sempre nel cuore, un gruppo affiatato provenienti da diversi paesi europei e non, visitare nuove città, culture diverse, spesso affini alla nostra, non può che arrichirti su tutti i fronti, per chi ama la fotografia come me, è stato un aprirsi ad un nuovo mondo, con spunti, prospettive ad incrementare la mia creatività, per non parlare dei workshop e shooting, il tutto organizzato alla perfezione dai gemelli, Gabriele e Massimiliano, professionalità, gentilezza e simpatia i loro punti forti. A loro il mio grazie mille di cuore per avermi dato questa opportunità, mi sento ogni volta più ricca su tutti i fronti, un incentivo all'ottimismo alla mia autostima, che mi sono sempre mancati. Grazie Mille Gemelli."

Giada from Italy (Discover Lisbon III)
"I've joined twins for 2 discovery in the row (Copenhagen and Lisbon III) and I need to admit that both of them were amazing experiences! I’ve met passionate people, explore 2 amazing cities and I’ve noticed that with each and every day I was taking better pictures. If you need time away from your normal life and hang out with positive people, attend photography workshop, improve your skills, need some inspiration and want to have fun doing all of that - discovery with Let me Italian you is what you need!
Massi and Gabri - thank you for making it happened!"
Monika from Poland (Discover Lisbon III)
"Let me Italian you: young people who have found a path, not easy, but with so much satisfaction: they persevered and grew up. #discoverLisbon, a new project in which I participated, now in its third edition, lots of emotions, lots of laughs, lots of words, lots of pictures, lots of new eyes, lots of clicks with different accents. Five have now passed, but the desire to continue and restart is still great.
Ready for a new adventure!"
Eleana from Italy (Discover Lisbon III)
"Discover Lisbon III is my 5th Discover with Let me Italian you. As the previous ones, also this Discover makes me really enthusiast for the high level of the workshops and guided tours: super amazing were the lessons by Octavio Alcantara (really great one) at IADE and Nuno Patrico who let us walking for almost one hour around different local and typical streets to lead his workshop where the essence of his workshop were born. Also the conception of the time is very original, there is time for everything: learning, walking, discover the city, having fun, making new friends, resting and so on. To everyone is guaranteed the strong emotion of the moment when you have to go back home, a clear sign that something is changed on you. Gabriele and Massimiliano are the ones who make this possible: they take care of every participant, one by one, and they are careful to every organizational aspects. They are the one who collect all the final photos, they publish them and give them visibility. I don't speak very well English but they are always kind to translate for me. Ciao amici e arrivederci presto."

I'm very happy for all I have learned, for the beautiful city that I could discover, but especially for the wonderful people who accompanied me during this adventure."
Alessandra from Italy (Discover Lisbon III)
"I would like to thank you because traveling with you is always amazing and I agree with Yan Pekar when he says that you have created a “new drug” because every time I go back home after a Discover project, I would love to book immediately another one. Also this time in Lisbon everything was perfect: the atmosphere that you are able to create is fantastic; these are days where I am really calm and happy to live this experience. At this point I joined your project totally relaxed even I do know anyone because I know that you will be there and everything will be fine and I will have great time! I am surprised that you organized Discover Lisbon during your birthday. It is incredible the passion that you have for what you do and that’s why you are able to do amazing things!"
Chiara from Italy (Discover Lisbon II)
"This is the first year for me with Let me Italian you. I took part in the project Discover Lisbon II and what can I say? It’s been a great experience! The best way to travel and visit beautiful countries for all over the world in a very good and well organized way and, in the same time, share your photography passion with a lot of nice people from different nationality and, lastly but not leastly, make a good friendships. Also, the twins are so nice! You should meet them. In short words, I recommend you Let me Italian you, you should take part at least in one of their projects and, I promise, you won’t regret it!"
