The apartment is just a 3-minute walk from the vibrant main avenue called Avenida da Liberdade, in the heart of Lisbon. This is the Baixa, or downtown area, and you can walk from here to the city's most central point in less than 10 minutes.
The Avenida da Liberdade is a wide, tree-lined avenue that runs from the heart of Lisbon's city center to the Marquês de Pombal square. Here you can find top designer stores, 5-star hotels, first-class restaurants, cafés and shops. There is plenty of terrace cafés on both sides of the main road, and on some days of the week there are book fairs, or stalls selling artisan products. The nearest Metro station is called Avenida and is also within 3 minutes' walk.
Once you reach the Avenida da Liberdade, it is less than 5 minutes to reach the main squares of Restauradores - where there is a Tourist Information office - and Rossio, probably Lisbon's most central point. From Rossio, you can take the train to reach Sintra in 25 minutes - a great choice for a day trip!
Apart from the main downtown squares, there are plenty of other sights within walking distance of the apartment: the Santa Justa Elevator, which provides stunning city and river views from its top-floor deck, the Ribeira das Naus riverfront walkway, the Elevador da Glória funicular railway, and it is quite easy to walk to the Bairro Alto and Alfama districts from here.
Chiado, with its trendy cafés, boutiques, designer shops, and bustling streets, is also within walking distance, and you can easily walk a little further to take the famous 28 tram from the Praça do Comércio square to get up the hill to the cathedral, Alfama and close to the castle.
