The Bairro Alto is one of Lisbon's oldest, and most interesting, areas. Lots to see and eat! Take in the views of the city, walk through neighborhoods that are hundreds of years old, take in a great meal.

It's called Bairro Alto for a reason! It's a steep climb up into this part of the city, but definitely a worthwhile trip! This seems like the older, more authentic part of Lisbon with interesting shops and restaurants as well as charming architecture. We went to a great restaurant with Fado music that I would highly recommend: Canto do Camōes.

Put time aside to walk through the neighbourhood at least once. Jazz bars, Pasteis de Nata cooking til 1am, excellent restaurants and just the general atmosphere are all amazing.

What a place! At first you will be a bit scared of the narrow lanes and the dim lit alleys... but after a couple of nights there... i loved the place! It is very near to the city and all within walking distance. As u will know, Lisbon is a hilly city, so make sure you put on your walking... More

We thoroughly enjoyed going around the hills where lot of youngsters visit for dance and parties during night. Lot of pubs, restaurants and activities start after 11 in the night and goes on till early morning.

It's not only a trendy place nowadays, but it is also a place where the old meets the new. Here you can find a misture of different ages neighbours; you can find typical restaurants "Casas de Pasto" where you go for a quick/ cheap meal and eclectic restaurants where you can ear the "Fado"; new business directed to all sorts...

the whole area is filled with restaurants, landmarks and pretty art. It's perfect to go for a walk, specialy during the night while the lights are on. Super romantic for couples. The little train is a bit expensive tho, you can just walk to the top. takes about 10 minutes and a strong pair of legs.
