Príncipe Real is located north from Bairro Alto. This residential area, filled with gardens and colourful buildings, is currently a shopping area for those who prefer to escape the international clothing brands and search for something unique. With the old buildings being renovated, a younger population is moving in to Principe Real, giving a new life to the neighbourhood. It’s proximity to the city’s main party spot (without the disadvantage of the loud noise) is part of this place’s charm. Life in Príncipe Real is centred around the park, the Jardim do Príncipe Real. Here you can see people having an outdoor lunch, gathering with friends or just enjoying the neighbourhood life. Just seat on one of the two kiosks and ask for a bica (coffee).
Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara is the most famous viewpoint in the city.
With the many bars and restaurant options.
Life is calm during the day and busy during nights, specially on weekends.
Lisbon is a laid back city that likes to eat, drink and dance.
It has all the culture and events of a European capital, but it’s a city you can enjoy at a much slower pace. Make the most of the awesome weather at the beaches, chilling at riverside cafés or sunbathing in the city’s gardens.
From enjoying a few beers in the streets, to crazy Erasmus events in bars and clubs, there are parties to go to every night.
