    Visited this historic area of Lisbon for an afternoon walking tour. It was lovely and definitely something that you must do when visiting Lisbon.

    We walked all around here and it was really pretty and charming. Winding small streets among the larger roads. Could walk around for hours

    Shopping, tourist attractions, restaurants, coffee shops, nightlife and more! Busy and fun. Lively and lot's to do. Has a great atmosphere with lot's of character. Just be careful in isolated roads late at night or early morning. There are some sketchy characters around. I was offered drugs a few times in the middle of the day! Fine otherwise.

    We came to Parque das Nacoes on a Thursday afternoon. The area was not busy at all. It is a nice and modern area in Lisbon, which has a huge contrast from the old historic vide of Alfama.

    The previous Expo site can be easily accessed with metro red-line, train or bus. It is also next to the Vasco de Gamma Mall and Oceanarium.

    We walked along the Tagus River and enjoy looking at the Expo site and world flags. We also took a cable car to see the river and the area from a different angle. It was such an enjoyable visit.

    We just loved Lisbon and stayed 5 nights. Baixa has the best of Lisbon’s grand plazas, sculpture and statues and Pombaline architecture, as well as shopping . The main highlights for us were:
    i) Praca do Commercio – a beautiful large square on the waterfront which was rebuilt after the devastation of the 1755 earthquake and tsunami
    ii) watching the sun set across the Tagus River from the Cais das Colunas
    iii) the crazy, wavy paving at Rossio Square. Wave after wave of traditional black and white, limestone and basalt paving almost made you feel woozy if you looked at it for too long. It’s fabulous.
    iv) Arco da Rua Augusta
    v) Santa Justa elevator – this is a very striking structure, esp when lit up at night and the views from the top platform down over Baixa and towards the castle are just stunning but (and its a big but) the line to get on the lift can be frustratingly long and it's not really worth waiting.

    We were surprised to stumble upon this waterfront development under the big bridge. It was really hopping on a Sunday in the Spring with lots of families out for lunch. Probably about 100 restaurants here, a huge success. And views of the yacht harbor.

    The museum is a solid visit. The decor and layout are beautiful and the artifacts make the turn spent worthwhile. The entire visit takes about 1 hour.

    This is a significant part of the older city, so there is a lot here, both good and bad. Don't eat here, but do take in the historic sites The restaurants are tourist traps but the historic city experience is genuine and can be charming. Walk around.

    One of the prettiest neighborhoods in the city, it is worth an afternoon to walk around this area and stop and have a coffee when you are tired. Very pleasant.

    One of the most picturesque streets in Lisbon, very steep and with an elevator street car to carry you up, when it is running. The pitch is so steep that is feels dangerous to walk either up or down. We did come to take photos, but we went over to neighboring streets where it is safer to climb or descend.

    We rented a small apartment in this neighborhood, it was a great place to stay with plenty to see and do and we also found some great local restaurants within walking distance. The train and buses were also within walking distance. We felt safe everywhere we went in this part of Lisbon.

    This is one of the most affluents and charming quarters of Lisbon! Although part of the city's historical center, "Campo de Ourique" has not yet been discovered by the tourist crowds and keeps its tradition as a residential area, but offering also some interesting attractions. One of them is "Casa de Fernando Pessoa", a small museum at the same house where the famous poet lived during his last 15 years. Another one is the "Mercado de Campo de Ourique", an indoor market with inumerous restaurants and groceries shops. A real foodies' paradise! Rush and visit "Bairro de Campo de Ourique" before the crowds discover this Lisbon's hidden jewell! Enjoy!
