It is a nice part of town where you will easily find somewhere for a coffee, meal or drink. We ended up around Chaido on most evenings it is close to Barrio Alto. There are high street shops and banks in the locality too.

Chiado os a great place to visit in the centre of Lisbon. In the evening it becomes vibrant with many restaurants and bars/cafes near by creating a great vibe.

A gorgeous square full of local activity and lovely lights. It leads nicely to the Carma Convent and the Chiado Museum which are roughly 10 mins walk away.

Primarily the upscale shopping area of Lisbon, you can find some great coffeehouses and don't miss Santi Ice Creams on the Rua do Carmo. With a comsopolitan vibe, this is also the main gathering area for the gay scene in Lisbon.

A very pedestrian friendly part of Lisbon, Wonderful restaurants and shops. It's the old historic part of the city. Just wonderful spot to use a base for exploring the... More

We came up the stairs to here, on a bit of a pub crawl, nice area, but not a lot of space, so be careful when crossing the road etc, it could end up a bit sticky! Loads of restaurants, smaller shops and bars, Ideal area for tourists ☺
