“City old areas renewed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

The ambient is very friendly with nice shops in the old buildings, and with the street performers.
You can see the old Lisbon architecture and visit the café where Fernando Pessoa, an estimed writer, spent its time.

“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

Loved the atmosphere, felt like being in Covent Garden in London or Soho Mahattan. Great shops, and close to Bairro Alto for restaurants and bars. Rossio good for entertainment.

“A Central Hub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Chiado metro is next door to the Cafe Brasiliana, one of the city's oldest and most popular. It is also on the route of the city's most scenic tram 28 and has lots of interesting shops, bars and restaurants. Many of the shops are too posh to put price stickers on the merchandise, but this is by no means as snooty an area as it would be in another city.

“Book shop is good.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

Bertrand bookshop is very old and fabulous to wander through; if you love books that is.
Brasileiria coffee shop is just OK...over rated, with lots of street activity, buskers etc outside.
The two churches nearby are very beautiful and worth a visit.

“Everything in one spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

We loved this area of Lisbon. Lots of people, lots of noise, lots of everything. The squares are surrounded with shops and eating places.
