Lisbon is the capital of Portugal with some 2.8 million inhabitants in greater Lisbon. The centre of the city is a relatively small area in downtown Lisbon called Baixa. The city is famous for its hills, but the centre is on a low-lying flat area (hence Baixa). There are plenty of shops and a bustling pedestrian district.

Around the old city centre of Baixa there are other districts with their own character. The oldest is called Alfama which is a myriad of narrow streets and alleys, plenty of restaurants and bars where you can listen to the fado singers at night. Opposite Alfama is Barrio Alto, as the name indicates, it is on one of the Lisbon hills. You can reach it with the famous Gustav Eiffel elevator (Elevador de Santa Justa) from the Baixa district. This is also a district with a high restaurant and bar density. It is more dominated by night clubs and modern music bars than the Alafama.

Lisbon is a city with many different faces that you can spend many days discovering.
