We visited A Vida Portugesa to buy authentic Portuguese souvenirs. The shop is small and nicely stocked with soaps, creams, tinned fish, Flor de Sel, woolens and other doo-dads. Be aware that selection is limited and prices are relatively high. Nevertheless I bought a few...More

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
