Shopping in Lisbon, Portugal
If you are one of those travelers who enjoy shopping – even if they are just souvenirs – you will probably not be disappointed in Lisbon. The city has a busy trade, with street shops, malls, outlets, markets and prices much more affordable than other European destinations.
Those who wish to take advantage of the promotions period must visit the city in the months of July and December (starting on December 26, for example, the sale will begin). In these seasons, prices drop by half, or even more than half, but if the visit takes place in another period, you can request a tax refund when leaving the country.
In general, street shops in Lisbon are open from 9 am to 7 pm, while shopping malls and department stores usually open at 10 am and close around 11 pm. Be aware, however, that some small establishments may close for lunch. In addition, on Saturdays, the opening hours of small stores can be differentiated, from 9 am to 1 pm; on Sundays, these places usually close.

Avenida da Liberdade is another ideal Lisbon address for those who enjoy shopping. The only “however”, however, are product prices.

The avenue that connects Praça dos Restauradores and Praça Marquês de Pombal is 90 meters wide, with decorated floors and beautiful buildings. And that is exactly why the tour on site is worthwhile, even if there is no intention to purchase.

Narrow streets with cobblestone pavement, quiet during the day and absolutely lively at night, when the local bars and restaurants are full, and lots of people circulating from side to side. This is the scene of the famous Bairro Alto, one of the most traditional neighborhoods in Lisbon, also well known as the bohemian area of the city.
The streets of Rosa, Diário de Notícias and Atalaia are excellent for those who seek quality nightlife without having time to finish. The truth is that there is no bad place in Bairro Alto and the main tip, therefore, is to get lost in the charming alleys and enjoy the night!
Tip from the MD: in Bairro Alto there is a great offer of holiday apartments. And the curious thing is that, despite the busy nightlife, the neighborhood has absolutely quiet residential streets, ideal for those who want a quiet place to rest.

“Flea markets” are very interesting places to visit, not only for those who wish to do some shopping, but also for those who wish to enjoy a different program.
And in Lisbon the visitor finds Feira da Ladra, a market that takes place on Tuesday and Saturday mornings, where you can find a huge variety of used objects, such as clothes, books, decorative objects, toys, antiques, among others.
A good part of the marketers exhibit their products in an improvised way, on a towel lined on the floor, and bargains, of course, are the watchword in the place. The Feira da Ladra is on the outskirts of the Pantheon (we talk about it here).

Filled with interesting stores, the Baixa region is one of the best shopping areas in Lisbon. But if you’re not a big fan of going in and out of stores, no problem. We are sure that you will enjoy exploring the area on foot and without much commitment.
One of the main shopping streets in the region is Augusta, which lies between two famous squares in the city, Praça do Rossio and Praça do Comércio, and is also exclusive for pedestrians. In addition to commercial establishments, the address concentrates some cafes and is also the stage for the presentation of street artists.
MD tip: if you are interested in shopping, be sure to check out the streets parallel to Augusta, such as Rua do Ouro and Rua da Prata.
The elegant Rua Garrett is one of the main addresses in Bairro do Chiado. In the place, which was once the most intellectual spot in the city, there are a number of trendy stores, old bookstores, such as Bertrand, charming cafes, such as the centenary A Brasileira – with the statue of Fernando Pessoa on the door – and a lot more.
If you are the type that does not miss the chance to do some shopping, then you can not miss the place where you can find stores of brands such as Zara, Hugo Boss, Nespresso, Nike, Massimo Dutti, Swarovski, among others. But if the intention is just to stroll, Garrett Street also leaves nothing to be desired, as it is excellent for walking.
