“A must see... and see again... and again...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

There's always something to do in Bairro Alto, and after two months in Lisbon I never got bored of it. By day, poke around bizarre antique shops full of everything you never knew you needed. Head to a restaurant for dinner (any kind of food you happen to be craving), and then to one of Bairro Alto's dozens of bars. The Erasmus Quarter is the cheapest bar area, but this is Lisbon and nothing's priced exorbitantly. The bars tend to be small, so spill out onto the street with your drink (it's legal) and meet people from all over the world, as well as locals. If you can remember the night, you'll certainly come home with a story or two from it.

“Explore during the day, dine here at night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

It's charming area with a variety of shops and restaurants. Several of the restaurants provide live entertainment (Fado) and there are wandering street musicians that also perform, which adds charm to the area.

“very nice view of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

It is nice to walk around - we took the elevator to avoid walking up - it was a long waiting line .
Then we walk around and down

“Great fun”

Loads of little bars and restaurants; thousands of people. Bit TOO busy sometimes (e.g. hard to move around etc).
