You can travel up this area in part using Tram 28 but I heard one story of attempted robbery so be careful. Because of my disability, we took a private tour that took us all the way to the castle, the driver displaying enormous skill in narrow streets. the very attractive narrow street s are lived by people living ordinary lives and in any other city in Europe, the area would be full of tourist tea shops and hte likes. the coffee shops had locals in them, the streets were very attractive and uniquely Portuguese and you could glimpse panoramic views here and there. At the very top, you enter the castle.
We felt we had been somewhere different and as it was February, there were few other touruists about.
