All reviews rua garrett great shopping lively area street performers fernando pessoa lots of shops walk around old lisbon visiting lisbon neighborhood square city district bookshop tourists carmo stroll
Our airbnb was located in Chiado. It is simply charming. Accessible to restaurants and bars in the evenings and lovely cafes for breakfast in the morning. Good shopping district as well. Convenient location
Amazing neighborhood! So many beautiful buildings, shops, restaurants and cafes. Within walking distance to Alfama and Bairro Alto. After visiting both of those areas, I am so glad I chose to stay in Chiado!
This is a lively neighborhood great for spending long hours walking and people-watching. We stayed in the heart of the square and could enjoy the street performers all the time. Lots of high end stores, restaurants, and walking friendly.
Lots to do in the whole area. Busy and vibrant from morning to midnight. Shopping, food, street musician and performers, bars, restaurants... beautiful streets. If you are in Lisbon and did not go to Chiado, what’s wrong with you!?
We stayed in the Chiado district when we were in Lisbon. It was a good choice. The Chiado district is within walkable distance to many of the sights (except the Belem Tower, etc.). The area has many interesting shops (including antique bookstores and new/historic tile...More
Had very unpleasant stay due to extreme noise from buskers and revellers in street day and night.
Rooms at top hotel eg 702 on street side most affected.
Rooms on other side with balconies or further down hill would not be as bad.
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.

Rua da Bica area has a lot of great local food restaurants and towards Calcade do Combro street top of Bica street to the West, restaurants both sides of the street are full with locals has best kitchen and price. The latter do not expect to be able to pay with credit card. Prefer cash as price is much lower and sometimes no pin transaction possible. Pay with smaller bills than €50,-
You see many local senior citizens occupy the place for menu del dia from €3,50 a platter. Day menu and a pint for €1,20 or less.
Also the cafés and bars in this area more for locals. Side streets and alleys are badly lit and is mainly your ‘not for tourists’ hint.
Making an effort speaking the language is appreciated. You will be addressed in Portuguese.
