City Tips

 

 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

Tram 28 - a great way to discover the city
 
  
Tram 28 travels from the city centre to the famous St George’s Castle overlooking the Tagus River and can be boarded near the statue of Luis de Camões. Travelling through some of the most interesting and historic parts of the city, it takes you on an unforgettable, 45 minute trip.
 

Pasteis de Belem - sweeten your day
 
  
Since 1837, this famous bustling pastry shop and cafe in Belem, Lisbon, has been churning out its sensational specialty made from a secret recipe - Pasteis de Belem, a custard cream tart with a slightly burnt crust on top, sprinkled with cinnamon. It tastes best warm, but you’ll want to take some home with you (in nicely packaged tubes of multiple pasteis). It’s hard to find a table, so you have to be fast at spotting people leaving.
  
 
Ginjinhayou should try it
 
  
Downtown Lisbon, at the area of Rossio you should look for a Ginjinha bar where you should try one of Lisbon's and Portugal's most famous drinks.  Ginja or Ginjinha as most people call it is a liqueur made of a cherry-like berry called (not surprisingly) Ginja. The berries are fermented into a brandy that’s slightly bitter, slightly sweet and very sticky. It costs very little for a Ginjinha however you should take it easy because it is quite strong. 
  
 
Fado Music - the heart of the Portuguese Soul
 
  
When visiting Lisbon, spending a night at a "casa de Fado" or Fado restaurant is an essential experience. There are many in the Bairro Alto district, but the most authentic are found in Alfama. Fado it is arguably the oldest urban folk music in the world. Some say it came as a dance from Africa in the 19th century and was adopted by the poor on the streets of Lisbon. Or perhaps it started at sea as the sad, melodic songs coaxed from the rolling waves by homesick sailors and fishermen. 

Attention - one of the safest cities in Europe
 
  
Nevertheless we would like to advise you to take good care of your belongings and especially what you have in your pockets since pickpockets are really famous for their skills in Lisbon. Especially in public transportation and particularly inside the Tram 28.
