Image this scenario: it’s Christmas time, you’re in Lisbon and you want to go Shopping.
Don’t know how to do it? Fear no more, we got the answer!
To start, you have the perfect scenario. Every November, the Christmas lights begin to fulfill the streets. Chiado, Rossio, Avenida da Liberdade and Lisbon’s downtown are some of the places you can enjoy this atmosphere, while you do some Christmas shopping.
But let’s talk about the goods!
If you’re looking for something “old fashioned”, you’re in the right place. Art deco boxes, vintage sardine tins, handmade leather gloves , retro packs of flour or rice and all kinds of toys, they are all here. Stores like Luvaria Ulisses or Óptica do Chiado are perfect examples if you’re looking for this kind of products.
In Avenida da Liberdade you can find a more high-end kind of store. Brands like Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors or Prada can be found here and you can take a break in one of many kiosks this avenue has to offer and grab something to eat or drink.
If you want a place with a more international kind of shop, you should go to Chiado. Although you have some stores most people can’t afford, there are more affordable one such as H&M and Zara. In Chiado you can also find quality Portuguese gifts, in stores like Vista Alegre, A Vida Portuguesa or Joalheira do Carmo .
Add all of this to the city’s climate as well as the gastronomical experience, and we can guarantee Lisbon is one of the best places you can come across in this time of the year.
