The architecture is stunning and the neighborhood is filled with excellent restaurants and stores. It is the perfect place for late night stroll or just to walk around a bit before checking the sunset from the Pier right across Augusta's Arch.

We had 7months old baby with us, stairs to upper level are a bit scary. Tickets were 1,5e per adult, baby did not need a ticket.

Every city has it's shopping area and Cidade Baixa is it. Though what is nice is it has some character with the architecture and terrain. There are side streets, alleys, hills, and turns. A nice area to walk around and people watch for sure.

This are is one of the most beautiful in Lisbon. The walk along Rua augusta from Rossio to Praca do Comercio is a classic and you will be able to see the arch from afar. Avoid the dodgy characters selling anything from counterfeits to drugs. Boy are they annoying. I had never noticed as they rarely bug portuguese but once... More

I stayed in this area for the 6 days I was in Lisbon and I fell madly in love. I loved walking around at night. The cobblestones glowed from the lights along the shoppes and restaurants. It was enchanting to say the least. Carts were lined up along the streets roasting chestnuts. This neighborhood was a sensory treat. I would... More

This is a lovely area to stroll in during the day or in the evening. It is very centrally located, with literally dozens of cafés, restaurants and shopping options, especially in Rua Augusta. We were told pickpocketing was an issue, but we did not encounter any during our visit, nor heard of any.
