Safety in Lisbon?

Jump to last reply

I’m usually one of the people posting about how safe it is in Europe. But I just read a truly alarmist paragraph on safety in Lisbon in Frommers, and I could do with a reality check. It reads: “It’s now quite dangerous to walk around at night. Many travelers report being held up at knifepoint.” [Talk about theft, including ATM cards and codes, and day-time pickpockets] “Congested areas are particularly hazardous. Avoid walking at night, especially if you’re alone.”

Well, I (60ish female) travel alone, and I’m accustomed to walking around European cities alone at night (well, until 11:00 or so) without worry. Do I really need to be concerned in Lisbon, or has Frommers gone off the deep end for nothing? Fodors just says to take normal precautions, and to avoid dark, empty (not congested!) streets at night. Lonely Planet says to avoid walking alone only through Bairro Alto, Alfama and Cais do Sodre late at night (presumably after midnight?) and avoid parks and gardens after sunset. I have a reservation at the Florescente, do I really need to eat all my dinners nearby??
