Allow two to three hours to walk the Alfama, perhaps more on a hot day, when you'll want to rest on the castle grounds or stop for drinks in a café. A visit to the Museu-Escola de Artes Decorativas will occupy at least an hour or two. It is closed Tuesday, while most other museums are closed Monday; churches generally close for a couple of hours in the middle of the day.
