It is the most vibrant area of Lisbon, day and night. But if you reserve a room around this area it will not be easy to sleep...

Heart of the nightlife in Lisbon is Bairro Alto/Chiado area. Full of people from morning to late night. Nearby Rua Garrett Street is definitely must see and most famous Café/Restaurant here is Brasileira and in front that is Poet Fernando Pessoa's Statue. Also lots of different kind of street artists, vendors and buskers around here.

During both day and some days at night you see some people singing or dancing and animating the steets. You can shop there or you can just relax and see some very beautiful historical buildings

We stumbled upon this neighborhood and found it to be a very nice shopping district with some upscale shops nearby. Fairly level (but some mild hilly areas)

Beautiful part of Lissabon. Easy to get around. Wide range of shops. Even wider range of places to eat and drink. Both outside and inside. Both on the ground and on dramatic rooftops.

Chiado is an important square in Lisbon and a starting point to Bairro Alto ; it can be easily reached by walking from the city center;if you find the Burger King restaurant in the city center ,you just climb that street until the end of it,then take the first street right and there you are ; the tram 28 also...

The Pedro IV square and adjacent streets and squares are quite gorgeous. It's a shame that there is quite a lot of building going on but although it's quite noisy and obstructive at some points it is good to see money being put into the area. The square in front of the archeological museum is a must see. Gorgeous!

Interesting shops, restaurants, and churches in this historic area of the city. I loved the tiled buildings. Bars spill out onto the streets at night so it's got a convivial atmosphere, but a little seedy at night too.
