Marquês de Pombal might be one of the most well-known neighbourhood in Lisbon. It's very popular with international students. It's a ridiculously busy roundabout with a huge column in its middle. Around, you'll find a neighbourhood of tall, modern buildings - this is the business district of Lisbon, after all. It's lively (especially during the day), and a large portion of Lisbon's locals come here to work. You can find several restaurants and cafes, as well as shops and stores. Nearby, you have the huge "Eduardo Sétimo" park where you can lay down on the grass and enjoy the view over bustling Lisbon. You also have Avenida da Liberdade, with a bunch of different bars in the middle of the avenue where you can sit down and enjoy sunny afternoons. To get around Lisbon, Marquês de Pombal is probably the best neighbourhood. It has one of the most important metro station (where blue and yellow lines cross). It's also serviced by nearly 20 different buses. You can really easily get from Marquês to any corner of the city.
