My wife and I will be going to Lisbon in mid September this year. We will be spending four nights there. I've been looking online and I'm a bit overwhelmed by the different areas and what they have to offer, so thought I'd check on here. Here are some of the things we'd like:
- Close to most hot spots by public transport or walk. We will not be renting a car.
- Not in a terribly noisy or touristy area. But not in a suburban area either. A good mix of bustling city life, with a fairly quiet neighborhood thrown in.
- If possible, views over the city skyline and the Tagus.
- If possible, a more historic/traditional and of course, safe neighborhood.
Bairro Alto, Graca and Alfama seem to pop up on every search I do. Thoughts?
