Although I think there is less to do in Barrio Alto than Chiado, I liked the area for that reason. It is quieter, less touristy and less built-up. Nice place to walk around a get a sense of the city without the crowds.

The tiled houses are good to look out for. The whole area is pretty with some buildings being attacked by graffiti and some left alone.

Wonderful pedestrian friendly neighborhood of bars and restaurants just jam packed against each other in the narrow streets. The establishments are so close together it is sometimes hard to tell where one leaves off. This area is definitely a focus of Lisboa night life.

I took the Hills Tram tour and also got some insights into the area. Great area to visit and wander in

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
