In Lisbon we can find many layers of history,culture and diversity. The 28 tram crosses Lisbon from old neighborhoods to the downtown, in a long ride through the hills and the narrow streets, with a mandatory stop at Chiado. Chiado is one of the most charming and alluring neighborhood of Lisbon and the center of the cultural life, with its theatres, bookstores and cafés with literary tradition like Brasileira Cafe, where the statue of the poet Fernando Pessoa is waiting to meet you at the esplanade. Right next to it, in Bairro Alto, one of the oldest and lively neighborhoods in the city,a resistent of the Lisbon earthquake in 1755, there are restaurants,bars,designer and fashion shops, along with taverns where you can hear the Fado music, in which the Portuguese soul sings its fate. Bairro Alto it´s part of nightlife in Lisbon Downtown, the tiled façades show stories in blue and the sidewalk draws your attention to the floor with cooblestones where your feet walk among fish, flowers, birds and mermaids.
