There’s so much to do here! But we’ve selected the best so you can make the most of your half a day in Lisbon. From the cultural district of Chiado to the bohemian nightlife of the Bairro Alto. From the cosmopolitan plazas of Downtown Lisbon to the picturesque streets of Alfama, we cover it all.
We start right at the heart of the city, what some people call the Montmartre of Lisbon: Chiado, where century-old shops live next door to designer stores and historical cafés, like A Brasileira. Next, nearby, is Bairro Alto, with hundreds of restaurants, cafés and clubs for all tastes. With more than 500 years of history, it has been inhabited by sailors, Jesuits and even the high nobility! And, next to the church of São Roque, we admire the view from the Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara.
Then, after visiting the Carmo Convent and Church, and the Santa Justa Elevator, we cross Downtown Lisbon, Baixa, while talking about some of the town’s most important historical moments. And our journey continues through the streets of Alfama where every corner is, litteraly, a postcard. The uneven streets, the century-old houses, the tiled façades: everything here is incredibly picturesque and traditional.
The oldest neighborhood in the country, the genuine Lisbon. We will conclude our visit all the way down, after visiting Lisbon’s Sé Cathedral, in the Rua Augusta Arch, in the beautiful Praça do Comércio. Maybe the best place to end your visit?
