People watching, shops, restaurants, and more. Locals with tourists. The prices are now even less than when I was there and the dollar to Euro exchange is more favorable. Wander the neighborhood after getting your fill of shopping and food.

Not far from where we are staying in the Barrio Alto, there are tons of stand alone shops and the mall at the end of Rua Garrett. We shopped, enjoyed a drink and a street performing band that was perfectly in tune with the kind of day that it was, a sunny, laid back Saturday around noon; then off to... More

If you are visiting Lisbon, you can't miss it. The tourists, the street performers, the shops and the ever-slightly feel that you are walking in a place that was rather different 100 years ago. Yes, Chiado was and is the heart of Lisbon, although the artists that used to live there have moved a long time ago (real state prices... More

Trams and trains in easy reach. Nice area and some streets quiet at night. Close to all areas except Alfama but Tram will take you there.

Every tour seems to begin, end or meander through this square, so it's hard to miss. A great place to spend some time people watching or to grab a bite to eat or just browsing through the shops.

This is what Soho must have been like before gentrification. Go there and go now, before all the well-to-do apartment buildings start opening up and the atmosphere changes. It is still rough in the edges, but that is the charm. Lots of boutiques with everything you will need, lots of stores...lots and lots of restaurants and cafes...loved it.

Visiting Lisbon without going to the Chiado would be a shame. Much of it was burnt down quite some years ago and rebuilt in the original style of architecture with some new modern buildings tucked away in the side streets. It is worth spending half a day walking around, visiting cafes or a restaurant, through the many squares that border... More

Nice little boutiques, a must if you like to shop and don't necessary want to go to H&M or Zara. The historical tramline 28 goes through Chiado, which is perfect to combine shopping and sightseeing
