Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about Alfama:

"1. Top idea: let your 16-year-old do his own research and allow him to plan at least one day's activities for both of you. At 16 he's more than old enough to do so be honest...he's old enough to spend at least a couple of hours unsupervised. Maybe he could explore the shops in the Baixa district while you enjoy a coffee or drink nearby? July events here: >"  See More
