This city of hills has breathtaking vantage points all around. For some of the best, try Varanda Restaurant (cocktails for two $35), atop the Four Seasons Hotel Ritz—set above Parque Eduardo VII.
Pasteis de Belém
The city’s famous custard tart is sold in a lot of places, but the freshest come from Confitería de Belém, a small confectionery near the Jerónimos monastery.
The pungent morello-cherry liquor—a national icon—is best enjoyed at the venerable, peanut-size bar Ginja Sem Rival, near the National Theatre.
Be sure to take a ride on the Elevador da Bica, which plies the steep streets of the Bairro Alto.
