Great area for city break. Plenty o f restaurants and bars tucked away in little cobbled streets. Very hilly city and all cobbled streets so you definitely need flat walking shoes

Many fine, moderately priced, restaurants in this area. Narrow streets, plenty of tourists, and lots of TA reviews to help narrow down the many fine choices!

Lots of bars, restaurants, people, views. Great place to walk around and one of the few neighborhoods you will find stores open on Sundays. Very touristy but worth walking around.

Bairro Alto, Bica & Cais do Sodre
Enjoy a cocktail, discover a jazz club, hit the dance
floor or simply grab a beer and catch up with your
friends in the street: Bairro Alto, Bica and Cais do
Sodré are the core of it all. Amazing rooftops,
restaurants, cafes, bars, art galleries, museums and
theaters abound. Start off by admiring the river from
the Santa Catarina belvedere, have a cocktail at
PARK's rooftop bar, try a typical Portuguese steak, or
