On one of our many wanders we came to this beautiful, traditional, clean area. Lovely shops, cafes, small squares and churches. A must see, recommended.

Nice views and a feel of a neighborhood versus a tourist area. Some very good bakeries and restaurants. Close to Everything.

Along the the Alfama, walking the streets and alleys of the Bairro Alto was one of our favorite things we did in Lisbon. Discover unexpected sights and when you're hungry pop into a local restaurant. It's what travel is all about.

The quarter of Bairro Alto is good choice for those who like nightlife and social life. There is a lot of opportunities to socialize in several bars, pubs, restaurants, coffee shops, parks etc. Especially on Friday nights the streets of Bairro Alto are very crowded.

This area is packed with all sorts of bars, restaurants cafes. It is really buzzing of a night.A few ways to get there, a lift of a Funicular or even a steep short walk for the more athletic.

Great neighborhood to experience the local culture of Lisbon! There are a lot of little snack bars that are opened till late if you need water or anything like it. Also very safe and very close to the main attractions and good restaurants.

too crowded, mostly pubs which are not specious enough to dance nor are selling good drinks (in general: they sell poor bear and poor drinks) I prefer other parts of the city.

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
