  • Despite not having been able to appreciate this neighborhood for "nightlife", it's nice to walk about during the day, maybe starting with the Praca do Príncipe Real and the palazzo with the Embaixada, and then ... get off ...

  • We found this very dirty neighborhood, with very expensive restaurants that didn't want to go, not stayed, we're down in the lowest area much more sympathetic with people who was doing the street entertainment

  • Lisbon is one of the cities most beautiful in the world my way see, beautiful, cheap, amiable, full of history and colorful, with its houses of the 18th century following the great earthquake. is a delight for the soul
