The Costa de Lisboa/Lisbon region
Lisbon, the city of seven hills, has been the capital of Portugal since the 12th century. It has a long history that can be experienced in the old neighbourhoods, which may be visited by foot or tram. The Atlantic climate offers wonderful conditions to travel all year round.
Lisbon bears the mark of an incredible heritage with laid-back pride. The city also presents an intriguing variety of faces to those who negotiate its switchback streets. In the oldest neighbourhoods, stepped alleys are lined with pastel-colour houses and crossed by laundry hung out to dry; here and there miradouros (vantage points) afford spectacular river or city views. In the centre, black-and-white mosaic cobblestone side-walks border wide boulevards, and blue-and-white azulejos (painted and glazed ceramic tiles) adorn churches, restaurants, and fountains.
BA dates back to the 16th century and is characterised by its small workshops and restaurants. By day, it is a quiet sleepy area (recently pedestrianised); by night the area becomes alive and is a popular place to dine and drink away the early hours.
There are three public car parks within 3 minutes walking distance.
The apartment is a short walking distance from the other picturesque neighbourhoods of Baixa and Alfama, where you can find the historic Castle (S. Jorge). It is also walking distance to the subway and train stations that can take you to the beautiful beaches around Cascais.
This apartment is also very close to Bica and Chiado.
In Bica you can find the Bica funicular that connects BA with Cais do Sodré (where you can catch the train that can take you to the beautiful beaches around Cascais).
Chiado is considered the most beautiful area of historic Lisbon. It was a place of residence of the Portuguese royalty and of the political and cultural elites. Nearby are located the theatre S. Luis and the opera S. Carlos. A little further is Camões Square (Praça de Camões), next to Bairro Alto, picturesque but raffish. Part of Lisbon's nightlife is concentrated in this quarter, where you can hear 'fados' being sung in some restaurants and cafés. Chiado and Bairro Alto are where locals and tourists meet, with elegant hotels, old cafés and the best international fashion shops.
A 5 minute walk takes you to the Rossio, in Baixa, and to the Elevador da Gloria ("time table"), which takes you to Avenida da Liberdade. In the other direction, you can find Praça do Comércio, centre of the old Portuguese empire on the river Tagus (Rio Tejo), close to shops, restaurants, cafes, banks, cash machines, public transport (inc subway Baixa/Chiado station and electric trams) 24 hour taxi stands, etc.
The nearest airport is Lisbon International Airport at 12 kilometres ; the nearest railway station is International Station of Santa Apolónia at 1 kilometre.

"A true Lisbon experience"
The check in was very smooth, carried out very professionably by Felipe for whom nothing was too much trouble. The apartment itself seemed considerably better than the pictures on the website. It wa… More
Felipe is a great asset to our company and thinks "customer service" in a very caring way. Glad you appreciated it and that you had a true Lisbon experience, which is what we set out for. Bairro Alto is, as you very well say, a quarter with its very own characteristics, partying being one; restaurants bars clubs wine bars are every other door so if you want to be where the fun is this is the quarter for you, as per most travelling guides. The blind in the living room will be replaced. Thank you again for your comments. TravelingtoLisbon team

"Great location for touring, not sleeping [over disco]"
In terms of location, this apartment is two blocks from the 28E tram and the Bica funicular. Really good. But it is also over a disco that shakes the apartment. We were able to sleep in the bedroom … More
