Being based in a holiday rental (apartment) in Bairro Alto you will be able to shop, dine and travel like a local although you will probably draw the line at hanging out your washing in the streets! The houses are tiny and streets are narrow so everything feels very intimate.Trams and buses pass through the area and there are small grocery stores, bakeries, bars and restaurants. The place comes alive at night but watch your belongings.

It's crowded, but less touristy, less tacky shops, but tons of restaurants and bars and lots of fun. Oh and there are some great view points there.

This is a unique area of small streets, with quaint terraces, interesting characters and local cafes selling delicious food. The older parts of Lisbon are the most interesting to explore.
Tips: You can go on an organised walking tour of this area and come back later to explore it further yourself. Eat where you see the locals are eating as this will usually be cheaper and the food more traditional.

Check your directions. Lots of turists lost looking for directions. We had to walk a lot to find a restaurant.

This area is full of interesting things. Churches, tiled homes, plazas etc.. It helps to have guidebook.
