  • Paying small amounts with a big bill does not work. The machine simply refuses.
  • This whole area is lovely to walk around. Extensive grassy areas and nearby there are many restaurants. A great place to visit as long as its a warm and sunny day. Not sure its the place to be on a cold and wet day though!
  • Very nice place to park your car in the middle of Lisbon.
  • Interesting monumental park above the city centre, surrounded by hotels. Nice to see.
  • At lisbon's heart, this big car Park has always available places to park the vehicle.

Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.
