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.
The flat is located at the side of largo do Carmo at Chiado, near a lot of trendy shops, two minutes walking to café Brasileira, very close to several museums, operas (S. Carlos), theatres (S. Luis) and churches and also to all the restaurants and bars of Bairro Alto where the sentimental 'fados' are still sung in certain restaurants and cafés. It is also 5 minutes walking to Rossio, the centre of Baixa, rebuilt after the earthquake of 1775.
For those who like dining and nightlife, the entrance to Bairro Alto, with its plethora of bars and restaurants for all budgets, is just a short walk away. One of Lisbon's quirkiest cafés, the Pavilhão Chinês, is about 2 minutes across the street, and this area of Lisbon is lucky enough to have lots of restaurants for outdoor dining, in particular the excellent Terra vegetarian restaurant.
For children, they can spend hours playing on the Praça Principe Real, while the wide pavements outside the apartments link directly to the formal gardens and park at the Miradouro, which offer ample space to run around.
Nearby you have the underground (Baixa-Chiado), and 15 minutes walking you access the train station (Cais do Sodré) to Cascais and all the beaches around. It is also close to shops, restaurants, cafés, 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.
