    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Praca Martim Moniz, Rua de Senhora da Saude, Lisbon 1100-586 Portugal

    Here’s the most multicultural square in town, Martim Moniz. It’s been a long time since Martim Moniz died (during the siege of Lisbon in 1147) and there’s a square that pays homage to the noble hero knight. Multicultural Lisbon starts here and it’s like you’re in Kreuzberg (Berlin). Down the Almirante Reis Avenue, there are small Chinese grocery stores, Turkish kebab houses, Indian restaurants and stores, and by the smell you could say you’re in Chinatown or Little Bombay.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Chiado, Lisbon Portugal

    Lisbon's most elegant and trendiest neighborhood is where everyone meets for coffee, shopping, or before dinner and a night out in neighboring Bairro Alto.
    Most of the buildings are from the 1700s, although many were restored in the 1990s by architect Álvaro Siza Vieira, after their destruction by a devastating fire in 1988. It's a neighborhood that flashes back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the "Belle Époque" when writers such as Fernando Pessoa and Eça de Queiroz used to write at the now historic cafés. It's also the neighborhood of theaters, of charming old bookshops and major international brands, giving it a lively cosmopolitan ambience at any time of the day.

    Duration: 25 minutes

    Stop At: Bairro Alto, Lisbon 1200-109 Portugal

    Bairro Alto, a neighborhood laid out in 1513, is a place that truly changes from night to day. In daylight this bohemian district is a sleepy place, hungover from the previous night, with not much going on except for the shops down Rua do Norte. When the sun sets a new life begins, with restaurants opening their doors, and crowds showing up to spend their bar-hopping night.
    The bars are small, forcing everyone to spill out onto the streets and creating a street party atmosphere. Rua da Atalaia, Rua do Diário de Noticias and Rua da Barroca become filled with caipirinha-sipping crowds, most under 40, but mixing different urban tribes, straight and gay.
    It's a place inhabited by old ladies and young artsy hipsters, giving it a vibe that is simultaneously old-fashioned and avant-garde, a shabby-chic neighborhood that really needs no name. It's simply the "bairro," the neighborhood where everything happens -- at night.
    Crossing the street (Calçada do Combro) you step into the small Bica neighborhood, known for its famous funicular. This is another picturesque neighborhood that goes down the hill, together with neighboring Santa Catarina which is known for its lookout terrace.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: The Pink Street, R. Nova do Carvalho, 1200-372 Lisboa, Portugal

    Rua Nova do Carvalho is a pedestrian street better known as “Pink Street,” after an urban renewal project in 2013, when the pavement between the terraces, bars and clubs was painted pink. It has become one of Lisbon’s most popular destinations at night, and is also an "open-air art gallery."

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Santos, Lisbon Portugal

    From here on the adventure becomes bumpy while crossing Santos Design District, with bars and clubs specialized in ingenious alcohol shots, area that is home to the famous house described in the novel The Maias by Eça de Queiroz and most recently, the house where Madonna lives.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: LX Factory, Rua Rodrigues de Faria 103, Lisbon 1300-501 Portugal

    A factory complex from 1846 was reborn in 2008 as a "factory" of creativity and experiences. It kept the industrial spaces and invited companies related to the arts, which later brought shops, cafés and restaurants. Today there’s a little bit of everything, from fashion to books, to vintage furniture and contemporary design, next to dining options that include pizza, sushi and burgers, in addition to the more creative cuisine. The interiors maintain many of the old pieces, while most of the façades are covered in street art.
