A Gem, Like the Whole City

Excellent

"Take the number 28 tram and stroll through Alfama ...", a friend and fellow traveler told me before I left for Lisbon. The truth is I didn't take it because it seemed like more of a touristy route (at 3 euros each, by the way) than something really authentic. I put on comfortable shoes (everyone insisted on the importance of "comfortable shoes" in Lisbon ... exaggerated) and I went up, got out and walked the streets of the Alfama district. It was a marvel. A gem, as the entire city of winding streets, stairs, patios, hanging clothes, beautiful tiles, Portuguese ladies from the neighborhood and hidden bars with coffee for € 0.50.

Full of overlooks and cafes

Great

It’s a must to have a walk in the afternoon and look the city from the overlooks. It’s hard to walk for the slopes, you’ll need energy.

The older part of the city

Excellent

Amazing views, take long walks around that part of town, it’s great!

Bohemian and beautiful.
