Living in Rossio is central and convenient. You're right in the very heart of the city: Bairro Alto one short climb away, the whole of Baixa stretching down another. And even Alfama, famous for its medieval alleys and backstreets, is just beyond. Rossio is exactly where the old town begins. It is a largely touristic area, but the student apartments and residences here tend to be very cool. It's a lively neighbourhood, filled with Portuguese culture and history, really close to some of the best typical restaurants in the whole city. As a historical area, the buildings are often quite old, but most apartments have been redone. And in Lisbon, of course, the older a building is the cooler it usually looks. Getting around Lisbon from Rossio is great: you've got a Green Line station (Rossio) and a Blue Line station (Restauradores) so close to each other, they'll take you anywhere you need to go. If not, you've got hundreds of buses and trams to choose from - just head to Restauradores or Praça da FIgueira.
From all corners of the world! Plenty of international students come live in Rossio, and Martim Moniz attracts plenty of people from all cultures and countries who come to work in Lisbon.
Uniplaces Headquarters!! The coolest office in town is inside Rossio train station, make sure you come say hi to us. (Rossio train station is interesting too - really pretty train station).
The History of Lisbon. This is the perfect neighbourhood to really get familiar with how crazy old all the streets are. We don't usually say this very often but: take a tour. It'll be worth it!
Casual, relaxed and very typical. Plenty of bars, cafés with outdoor seating, and restaurants where you'll eat really well, for not that much.
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.
