Adorable little apartment close to the historic No. 28 tram route

5 of 5
We had a lovely three night stay at João’s apartment in picturesque Alfama neighbourhood. The place was lively, but not noisy, at night with traditional Fado entertainment, restaurants and cafes. We took the No.28 tram (a lovely experience in itself) into town very easily from the Port de Sol nearby. We were able to fit in loads of sightseeing as everywhere was accessible by public transport. Eating at The Teatro Mini Bar was one of the highlights of the trip, plus Torre de Belém, Time Out Market, Escher exhibition, Santa Justa Elevador, National Tile Museum and more. João greeted us with wine and biscuits and was the perfect host. Emma and Neil

Quaint small apartment close to city centre

4 of 5
Very clean and well equipped apartment close to centre of Lisbon. Owner very helpful with local knowledge. It is on first floor and has some steep steps leading to the apartment. Overall an excellent place for a couple to explore the city.
