“What a lovely quarter.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

This is an absolutely lovely quarter.
It is well worth the steep walk up Rua Garrett.

The place is packed with cafés, restaurants, shops and offers a very touristic experience – both day and night.

The place was almost burnt to the ground in the 1988 horrible fire, but thankfully, it was restored to its previous beauty.

Don't miss the two beautiful churches, facing eachotherm in Largo do Chiado.

“Real Lisbon downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

I lived in Lisbon many years and returned with a group of friends to spend some vacation days. Chiado for us is the place to be from restaurants to nightlife.

“Uptown Charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

This is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Lisbon..close to a Metro, full of interesting shops and restaurants. And spectacular views! Just around the corner north is the Principe Real park and the Botanic Garden, and west is the Pharmacy Museum and restaurant. Don't miss this in your visit to Lisbon.
