We are going to Lisbon in April and I have been doing research on where to stay there. The books I have been reading say that Bairro Alto is fun but loud. We like fun but to a certain extent (we don't stay out till the wee hours, we like sleeping well :) ).
Near Rossio or Chiado seems like a good choice. Is it?
Also we may consider staying near the Parque Eduardo VII, but it doesn't look like a short walk to Rossio, Baixa, Chiado and Bairro Alto from there. How late does the subway stay open?
We like having nice places nearby to go to in the evening if we feel like it, like a restaurant or a bar. We don't want to stay in a neighbourhood that is totally "dead" after a certain hour. Can someone please give us a bit of advice?
