Top ways to experience Chiado
The area
Neighborhood: 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.

    A beautiful, interesting and walkable city.
    We have just returned from a two night stay in Lisbon en route to a stay with friends further south. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful and interesting city. Lisbon is a very walkable city albeit with some challenging inclines. You must explore the Alfama district but be prepared to get lost then be enthralled by views over the city below. We used the Metro and Main Line Train to visit Belem but otherwise walked everywhere, covering 12miles in the day. The history and viewing the heritage sites are well worth the exercise. There are many excellent cafes, bars and restaurants all reasonably priced. We had a memorably delicious evening meal at the famous Sao Bento steak restaurant. Go there if you can. Can't wait to go back.

    A Beautiful part of Lisbon.
    What can I say! We love Lisbon and stayed in the beautiful and perfectly located Chiado area. Close to everything that you need and so central, it’s an absolutely perfect spot for seeing the sights of Lisbon. Lovely bars and restaurants and not far from the Time Out market and the castle.

    Charming area in Lisbon to spend time
    Chiado is a quaint little neighbourhood between Bairro Alto and Baixa Pombalina that has something of a Bohemian feel to it with lots of boutique shops, cute eateries, bars, bookshops, squares lined with Calcada portuguesa, playful statues as well as nice monuments (Luis de Camoes) and a handful of attractive historic churches. It is a good area to spend some time wandering, shopping, dining and just having a good time. We spent a couple days sightseeing in the area and also popped over during other afternoons and evenings for rounds of drinks and a couple meals during our recent visit to Lisbon.

    Beautiful area
    It's a beautiful area of Lisbon. Even though I am portuguese, I never get tired of walking around those streets. Plenty of tourists but still very authentic. Various nice cafés, good restaurants, and beautiful shops. Careful though with the Chiado Eyeglass Factory in Rua Garrett. They sell most of the international brands of sun glasses but extremely overpriced.

    Vibrant and atmospheric area of Lisbon
    We walked through this beautifully vibrant area of Lisbon with its many bars restaurants and shops. The odd street performance also appeared. The only negative here are some of the dodgy restaurants who get you in and promise the world but then claim at the end they only accept cash. We saw several groups cop this

    Upmarket and more original
    Rising uphill from the tourist oriented Baixa this neighborhood has more interesting shops and restaurants. The joint metro station opens up high on the Chiado side where the tramline also travels. Even in late Autumn rain people sit in the dark on the terraces watching live street performancies.

Despite numerous churches in this neighborhood, the one most memorable is the skeletal remains of Convento do Carmo which is also close to the fantastic views at the viewing platform at the top of Elevador de Santa Justa. Just walking on Rua Garrett is nice too.

Chiado in lisbon is an important cultural and commercial area with its elegant and bohemian neighborhood. It lies between Bairro Alto and Baixa Pombalina streets. Trees are lined on both sides.
