Cute area with nice shops and a good nightlife. Visiting the oldest bookstore in the world is a must, as well as Cafe Brasilia (you can just imagine Pessoa sipping absinthe inside!)

Kind of the tourism heart of Lisbon. You can wander for hours. Lots of pigeons, fountains, status, monuments, cafes, shops, performers. Great for street photography.

Another lovely place to stroll and absorb more of Lisbon. Lovely sandwich shop in the square. Probably not more than an hour or so.

High street shopping area. Beautiful pedestrian floor with tiles. Taking pictures of the old trams going back and forth is fun.

Filled with shops and restaurants, this area is perfect for shopping and eating. Filled with locals and tourists it is always busy. It is also a prime area for pick pockets and beggars. Don't let that deter you from visiting, as with any city you need to be alert.

I am totally in love with Portugal. I just love the city, the streets and the Chiado is a perfect example of how history has managed to be kept intact with the modern times. That is the beauty of Europe as a whole... The architecture is a constant reminder of the rich heritage and culture for the world to enjoy.... More

Be carful of pick pockets. Witnessed a family that was almost pick pocketed. The family realized that they were being pick pocketed and ran away. Astonishingly, the pick pocketers chased after them. Pick pocketers disguised themselves as tourists.

Staying in Chiado & Carmo

Neighborhood Profile
Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.
