lots of nice smaller restaurants, parks, shops in this hill top area. If you are not into walking hills, take a bus or the trolley car up to the top....nice views of the city too.

Walking thru history, great restaurants and shops. The character of the area is like your at a different time in history.

Lively atmosphere and great street musicians. Loads of restaurants & cafes to choose from. We sat outside for over an hour just watching people go by and some local musician playing. There are lots of known shops too for that bit of shopping.

We were staying in the area, because it's so central and already on the hill. Most of it, especially the lower part, is a bit of a disappointment. Full of cheap souvenir shops and pretty awful bars, you'll be better off in either upper parts of the area, or elsewhere altogether.

Bairo Alto is both in daytime as at night a very nice area. There are many good restaurants and shops. Especially at Rua Dom Pedro there are a lot of shops which are great to wander around. A must to go there when you are in Lissabon.

We visited at about 6 o'clock in the evening and were lucky to find a table. Gorgeous spot with lovely views especially over sunset. We shared a bottle of Vihno Verdi and watched the Sun go down. It had a great atmosphere as well as the views and I would definitely recommended it.

THE place to go if you like narrow streets, hundreds of bars and local restaurants and, not to forget, beautiful old buildings.
