The neighborhood does liven up a little at night, but no more so than some other neighborhoods in Lisbon. Up a steep hill, and I would not advise trying to walk it, either up or down. No flat places in Barrio Alto.!

You can get the funicular from Abenida Liberdade, otherwise you can use the escalators in the Baixa Chaido metro station, or there is some climb, but we'll worth it. With a fantastic choice of restaurants and bars in the narrow cobbled streets you will find...More

Interesting place, unique and unusual, but to our surprise every building in old town is covered with graffiti.

This was our first visit to Lisbon, and we initially couldn't decide between this area or the more modern parts of the city for accommodation. We were glad we chose Bairro Alto because everything is literally on your doorstep. During the day, there are plenty...More

Bairro Alto, Bica & Cais do Sodre
Enjoy a cocktail, discover a jazz club, hit the dance
floor or simply grab a beer and catch up with your
friends in the street: Bairro Alto, Bica and Cais do
Sodré are the core of it all. Amazing rooftops,
restaurants, cafes, bars, art galleries, museums and
theaters abound. Start off by admiring the river from
the Santa Catarina belvedere, have a cocktail at
PARK's rooftop bar, try a typical Portuguese steak, or

(You'll find stronger substitutes to tea and coffee offered for sale on every street corner here day and night; as they have a relaxed attitude to alternative stimulants here..)
