Great area for restaurants and clubs. Went to a great blues club, with good drinks and entertainment. We're a couple in our 50's but enjoyed several nights out there. Even late at night the area felt pretty safe. It was jammed with people! We walked 20 minutes back to our hotel via stairs, and escalators after midnight and never felt... More

This neighbourhood is one of the hippest places in all of Lisbon. It has been around for a 1,000 years and it's the place to be to enjoy the great nightlife Lisbon has to offer. It's full of trendy restaurants and clubs.

It's the heart of the town at night in Lisbon. It worth wondering at night it's exactly where you'll find everyone partying every night.

Went up by funicular in the afternoon - apparently it livens up at night but during the day the streets are full of bags of rubbish. We also got charged nearly 5 euros for a tea and coffee, whereas everywhere else we only paid between 2 and 3 euros.

Good restaurants, nice music "FADO". Historical place with a lot of tradition. You must be there in order to get to know the Portugal culture.

We did not stay in the Barrio Alto for our time in Lisbon. We only went to the hotel to visit the Hotel Roof Top Terrace Bar. The sole bar tender was very polite, informative, helpful and help us relax on the roof top Terrance bar. The prices were reasonable considering we are in a capital city and similar to... More

We are not really overwelming by the place. Lots is tourists, nothing really justifies the hipe. But is a visit you should do, because everybody at your place I'll ask you abouti, but don't expect much. Restaurants there are overpriced and not so good. Lisbon is much more that this...
