An in­sider’s guide to… Lis­bon

New Zealand Woman’s Weekly - - WEEKLYTRAVEL -

NEVER BUY A COLD PAS­TEL DE NATA – the fa­mous tarts are meant to be en­joyed warm.

SKIP THE HUGE QUEUES – that wait for the historic #28 tram and take a tuk-tuk up into hilly streets of the historic Alfama district.

FOR GREAT VIEWS AND DRINKS – head to the three-tiered rooftop Sky Bar, on the 9th floor of the down­town Tivoli ho­tel.

FOR A GREAT COCK­TAIL IN THE SUN – head to the rooftop bar of the LXFac­tory at the Time Out Mar­ket in Al­cân­tara.

IF YOU WANT TO SEE LIS­BON AS THE LO­CALS DO – don’t go dur­ing Au­gust; that’s when it’s crowded with sum­mer tourists.
