If you are lucky, like I was, you might be able to take one as you come in to land at Lisbon airport.

I sat on the left-hand side of the plane.

One of the best approaches to the Aqueduto das Aguas Livres:

Go up to Bairro Alto. There are several ways to get up to this beautiful hilly neighborhood. If you're originating from the Baixa (lower Lisbon), walk towards Praca dos Restauradores (where the main tourist office is located), cross the street where you see the funicular (Elevador da Gloria).

Take this up to the top of the hill where you'll be deposited right across the belvedere/overlook - the Miradouro de Sao Pedro de Alcantara. Turn right on this street which is Rua Dom Pedro V, take this straight thru til it becomes Rua da Escola Politecnica. Keep going towards the end of this street where you end up at the rotunda called Largo do Rato. Across from this you see the continuing street called Rua das Amoreiras....from here you'll start seeing the beginning of the massive aqueduct.

It's a good 15-20 min. walk from the Miradouro where you get off from the funicular.

I'd recommend before starting to appreciate the massive arches of the aqueduct to first visit the actual reservoir called Mae d'Agua (Mother water) which also serves as a museum, walk all the way up to the rooftop and enjoy an exhilarating view of western Lisbon. There's also a lovely garden inside and as part of the reservoir you can enjoy and admire a beautiful tiny old church mounted inside one of the aqueducts.

This is a non-touristy area, even the enjoyment of the aqueduct itself and you'd be glad you came this way.

If you haven't book your hotel as yet, you should consider staying in Bairro Alto itself where the bohemian happenings day and night take place. A great neighborhood to be in. There are lots of VT member pages with listings of great inexpensive B&B (pensaos) you can look thru if interested.

I will be staying on Rua Augusta close to the arch

Re: where in lisbon can I take good pic of Aqueduto das Águas Livres


In that case, it's easy enough and straightforward to pick your way towards Elevador da Gloria (the funicular up to Bairro Alto)by Praca dos Restauradores.

Just walk along Rua Augusta to the direction of Rossio Square where you see two massive fountains in the middle, the square beyond Rossio going up towards Avenida da Liberdade is Praca dos Restauradores.

Travel Tips for Lisbon

The Beer Hunt Lisbon...

by Cabana_Boy

Wherever you go, whatever you do, sampling the local beer is definite must.

What do the locals drink, what beer is most popular, which beer is hardest to find, does it come in a half pint glass just like grandma used to drink…or better still, a full pint glass like I drink??? These are all good questions that need to be answered...

Lisbon welcomed the boys from Indiana with warm regards and cold Sagres beers. Sagres has to be Portugal’s best selling beer and its nice, light, hoppy overtones were just what Karl (a.k.a. cabana boy) needed during the 1999 Christmas season… Despite my short time in Lisbon, I was able to get thoroughly associated with Sagres Beer and have been fortunate to find it in other markets outside of its homeland. Spot on, Sagres, keep brewing and keep exporting, I drink you in Portugal, I drink you in Angola or wherever you’re exported….

Alfama it's a popular part of Lisbon. It's one of that historical nighbours where you can find some symbols and lisbon people, diferent types of arquitecture influences and many typical stores and cafés. Alfama has close streets, coloured buildings, older people and .... lot of churches.

Praça do Comercio

by ncfg

I took this Praça do Comércio pic (Commerce Square) from the ferry , also known as Palace Square (Terreiro do Paço).
This is one of the most magnificent squares of Lisbon and was once the main maritime entrance to Lisbon. The name Palace Square is clearly a reference to the Palace that was located here for 400 years, until the 1755 earthquake that almost completely destroyed it.

Atention: beggars and gypsys

by Pepinha

Lisbon downtown has lots of beggars and venderores that sell sun glaces, drugs and other stuff. This is not typical from Portugal or Lisbon! These people are not portuguese: they're gypsy and romenian immigrants who come to Lisbon to fool portuguese and foreigners. Don't think this is common, but be aware, because they can really fool you.

Packing List

by Fonseca2002

Bring your camera, the rest its all here...

Most people speaks and understands English and French (fewer of them) very well, German or Italian will be a problem... A map helps a lot ( they are for free in tourists info spots) because people will be kind to point the right way on it, even if they do not speak well, just try to spell them the name of the place you want to go... Weather can get a little unpredictable (except in warm July and August), just be prepared for some changes, the afternoons can get a little windy.... Try to have always lots of spear money (small coins) because people in shops and other places are a little rude when you use big paper money...
