“Great restaurants and shops..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Old buildings, nice restaurants, interesting shops for all budgets.

To visit both during the day and the evening.

PS. Avoid the turistic restaurants... they can be boring..

“Full of Action and Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

The Baixa is full to the brim with life. The streets filled with pedestrians, the sidewalks lined with all the wonders of the world. Best of all there is not a scrap of rubbish on the ground. All the people we encountered were kind, gracious and helpful. The restaurants were numerous and varied, making a decision very difficult. Many outdoor dining experiences available. We so enjoyed our week of exploring the area and always found something new and interesting.

“Tourism and shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I love the architecture, and how we can walk through Rua Augusta in the direction of the river. It's a huge shopping centre with some good restaurants and close to historical theatres as well as between some interesting traditional quarters.

“The heart of the city!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

This is the place where many major events of the Portuguese history took place, and it is here that we find things we don't find anywhere else in Lisbon - such as street musicians, living statues, excentric people and the like.
