Apartment 242 is located in one of the oldest neighbourhoods of Lisbon, where you will most certainly experience the traditional Portuguese way of life. There are several other apartments at Bairro Alto and Bica.

It is at the border of Bairro Alto inside the way were the funicular Bica passes.

Lisbon's steeply sloping terrain has always been a serious problem for the transport of people and goods between the high and the low-lying areas. During the 19th century, in some areas, the company of transports in Lisbon used trams on rails pulled by animals. On the 28th June 1890 a new system was opened to the public at de street of Duarte Belo, copying the one already in use at Calçada do Lavra and Calçada da Glória. The initial traction system was by rack and cable, with water as the counter-weight and it started using electricity around 1912. The actual carriages where not changed since the thirties.

All the three funiculars in Lisbon, Calçada do Lavra, Glória and Bica were declared to be national monuments in February 2002.

Bairro Alto dates back to the 16th century and is characterised by its small workshops and restaurants. By day, it is a quiet sleepy area (recently pedestrianized); by night the area comes alive and is a popular place to dine and drink away the early hours. In Bica you can find the Bica funicular that connects Bairro Alto with Cais do Sodré (where you can catch the train that can take you to the beautiful beaches around Cascais).

It is close to shops, restaurants, cafés, banks, cash machines, public transport ( inccluding subway station Baixa/Chiado and electric trams) and 24 hour taxi stands, etc.

A wonderful experience of living right in the heart of the city!

The nearest airport is Lisbon International Airport at 12 kilometres; the nearest railway station is International Station of Santa Apolónia at 1 kilometre.

Came and see for yourself!

Amazing apartment with an incredible view located perfectly in a very narrow street filled with bars and restaurant. Couldn't have been happier with the place!

Had a wonderful stay here - the apartment is excellently located, close to loads of restaurants and bars but not too close to the 'strip' so it was very quiet at night. Would really recommend having a coffee in the morning at the viewpoint of Santa Catarina, which is 5 minutes around the corner and has a lovely atmosphere. The apartment itself was very clean and had everything we needed ,air con was great. Be warned, there are lots of stairs - but that's Lisbon for you, and it's worth it for the great view!

The service from Travelingtolisbon was fantastic (moved our dates back 24hrs because our flight was canceled), great welcome, emails and phone communications were quick and easy, etc. We did not mind the walk up the 4 floors without elevators, and we liked that we could see the Taj river from our windows. The apartment was quiet when we closed the windows at night (air conditioning was perfect). The location is great, we could walk everywhere from the apartment. Overall, we recommend Travelingtolisbon and the apartment.
