The center of downtown Lisbon, full of shops and places to eat and drink. Crowded, full of life. Maybe too many souvenir stores and tacky restaurants, but come for a stroll. Some pedestrian streets.

Cidade Baixa is the real heart of the city. It has all you need whether it's shopping, restaurants, or just sightseeing there's always something to see. It's frenetic so not a place for a relaxing stroll.
