High place over city for fun, dining

visit this section of Lisboa every time I come to The city. There is so many interesting places, restaurants, bars, plazas, parks, and people watching over a cup of coffee.

Enjoyed Bairro Alto tram ride. The tram driver however didn't add anything to the experience which was a shame. He was the most miserable man I've ever met, couldn't muster a smile or acknowledge any of the passengers. He was extremely rude. Think they would be better replacing him with someone who can deal with the public and tourists and... More

Personally, I liked it. I went out on my own that night, but I felt totally secure. If you are taking the crowded narrow streets that are illuminated, the "worse" thing could be some men offering you some drugs for example, but nobody is forcing you to buy anything. A lot of bars to have a drink, and take a... More

The Barrio Alto is one of the well kept parts of Lisbon. I believe it was the home district for the not-so well off workers. The streets are filled with many small restaurants, lively at nighttimes.

Built on a hill, the cobblestone streets are an adventure to navigate. Looked for a restaurant there on Easter Sunday but a number of places had closed. Wonderful view from the plaza overlooking Lisbon. Took the bus tour through the Barrio so I have a good picture of the neighbourhood. Would like to see more. Took the tram/cable car down... More

There is the youthful district of Lisbon. Many little bars and restorants. You must go there with the tram and you can see an incredible view of Lisbon. You must walk to the vintage streets. After the sunset the small roads became to a big party. Nice and cheep drink everywhere. But sometimes you need be carefull some ''strange'' blokes.....
