We came here on our last night, after hearing it was the place to be. We also heard 1 euro a drink so thought we would try a few. This area seemed to be the place for a 'traditional' Fado. Lots of restaurants that were...More

This is a super area to visit and stay a night or weekend. Lots of bars and restaurants. Not the most child friendly area just because there are narrow streets and side walks.

Very cool neighborhood where a lot of locals hang out for dinner! Try local dishes like bacalhau a bras and pasteis de belem. Wash it down with a glass of port/ginjinha.

You can walk up to Bairro Alto or take a trolley (the elevador da Gloria) from the Plaza de Restauradores where the obelisk is. Worth a visit because of the quaint cobble stone streets and 16 th century buildings some with colorful tiles. Now it...More

The area is really beautiful with old houses and stone streets. The real European charm. The only issue we saw was that they allow cars in such narrow streets.

Firstly the area is hard to reach with much hill climbing on cobblestone roads. The restaurants offer basic fare at best. Most are not open until late. It is area for young adult looking to party.

Great Lisbon neighborhood with meandering streets and lots of local shops and restaurants. It has the feel of a locals area with some of the more popular tourist spots scattered within. Check out the "elevador" for some nice views.

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
