This is probably one of the only streets in Lisbon, where you could feel the Eurovision Song Contest vibe, outside the nearby Eurovillage.

Rua Augusta is busy shopping street leading from Rossio Square to the riverside. There are restaurants and shops along the street. Vendors and music players are commonly found there. This should be the central point for tourists and so be aware of pick-pockets.

Excellent place to relax and have a cold one. With a lot of choices of food, shops an attractions. This is one of the most centric place in Lisbon. I always go when visiting the city.

earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the
Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the
