Lisbon is an elegant and imposing city – well beyond what a first time visitor might expect. But Portugal’s rich history of empire means Lisbon is a smart place. This guide takes you around the city centre… touring in a GPS audio guided electric buggy to the Castle and Cathedral… by tram to historic Belem… you’ll get tips on using public transport efficiently ( including Lisbon’s historic funicular trams ) and discover some quite markets and peaceful corners of the city. Tim compares the iconic Lisbon sweet – the custard tart – and tells you where to buy the best of them ! Enjoy that brilliant Lisbon oddity the Santa Justa Lift. The guide recommends the small, but upscale Heritage Hotels group. And discover one of the world’s most imposing art deco buildings – the Teatro Eden. This first part of the guide runs to thirty minutes and the second part to twenty-seven minutes.
