A splendid apartment with a lovely garden right in the centre of the city
Lisbon still has of those lovely surprises! A quiet garden in the very centre of the city, a few steps away from the shopping streets and theatres of Chiado and very close to the animated area of Bairro Alto! But the Belas Artes Apartment has not only a garden to offer, its refined classical decoration and commodities are those which will make your trip in Portugal unforgettable.
The area surrounding the apartment:
The historical area of Chiado starts just after the narrow streets of Bairro Alto and goes down to the lower part of the city called Baixa, and reaches the banks of the Tagus river. It is one the best places in town with elegant buildings, theatres, the São Carlos opera house, historical cafés like A Brasileira and nice fashion boutiques. The location of the flat is ideal, at the same time one street away from the shopping zone of Chiado, the Garrett street, not too far from the narrow streets of Bairro Alto, but also so near of the Baixa in a five minute walk. In other words, you are here at the very centre of the city. If you simply look for restaurants, bars, night clubs or fado houses, go to Bairro Alto via Rua Garrett and the pretty Praça Luis Camões. Downwards walk in front of the 19th century Eiffel elevator down to the magnificient Rossio train station of Manuelin style which will be your linking point to Sintra; and after a 45 min journey you can spend a day visiting the Sintra area, its royal castles and parks. And if your prefer a museum, pickup a metro at the Baixa Chiado station and go to the Gulbenkian Museum in 10 minutes.
