The Bairro Alto is worth a stroll, but no more. Unlike the Alfama, it is very much geared toward tourists, with many bars and nightclubs, and it is horribly defaced by graffiti. Both times I walked through, the neighborhood seemed completely dead. maybe it comes to life past my bed time...

Address: 1100-172 Alfama, Lisbon
Directions: The regular grid of streets on the West side of the Chiado / Carmo area.
