As some have written, up and down and up and down again.
Cobblestone streets, beautiful houses and lots of bars and cafés. Great views over Lisbon from some strategic points and perfect photo opportunities for enthusiasts.
I have only been here during the day, but as everyone speaks of the fantastic nightlife in Bairro Alto I will try it later on.
This is maybe not a place suited for all disabilities and you might want to take it easy going up the hills if you have heart problems. It is rather steep. However, there are trams here and there and you can enjoy a ride to make going up or down easier.

A lot of shops, difficult to find grocery shops, and also the roads are not nice if you have a stroller: there are made of collberstone in the city center.

After reading how cool how wonderful i was a little disappointed. Not everything it's made out to be though still enjoyed. Went for a meal one night and visited the bars etc. which we're fun.

Bairro Alto is great if you like a great quirky mix of bars and cheap drinks. One of Lisbon's many characterful areas, it can be lots of fun and you can wander around the alleys where you will find all manner of different drinking holes and eateries.

A popular area to have drinks outdoors with lots of locals and tourists alike - very busy on a Saturday night!

This area is full of unexpected little shops filled with handmade and quaint things and restaurants with Fado. The best thing is to have no plans but just wander and see what you come across as every street and corner has nice suprises!
