The Alfama district, by buggy or Ape Calessino

Bairro Alfama is Lisbon's most popular and colourful district. It is well worth an unusual kind of tour, in an equally unusual vehicle.

The best way to tour Lisbon, and particularly Bairro Alfama, without getting too tired is in a rented vehicle - it is not known as “the city of seven hills” for nothing! The most enjoyable options are the magnificent red 'buggy' (a lightweight electric all-terrain vehicle) and the fabulously retro Ape Calessino motorised tricycle. The buggy is ideal for a family of four you can roam the city without any problem, and even take on the steepest roads. While you are up there, admire the Alfama in all its splendour and understand why it is considered the most authentic area of Lisbon: narrow cobbled streets, bright facades, laundry hanging from the windows... And finally, for those who love to circulate everywhere, absolutely everywhere, there is the Segway solution: 100% ecological and 100% fun.
