Shopping in Lisbon


Like food and nightlife, the shopping scene in Lisbon is wide and varied, where everyone can find a place to buy items that would cater to their personal style. From flea markets that sell bohemian trinkets of all sizes, to the luxury brands found at the Chiado district, and vintage shops where you could see amazing Portuguese items, you’ll never run out of places to shop around Lisbon.

The main shopping areas in Lisbon include Chiado, Principe Real, Avenida Da Liberdade, Baixa, and Barrio Alto. Several shopping malls are scattered around town, some as big as Colombo and others as small as Armazéns do Chiado. Lisbon also has the Feira da Ladra near National Pantheon, and a market for fresh produce at Mercado da Ribeira.

If you’re always looking for the trendiest styles, checkout Lisbon’s Modalisbo, the city’s independent fashion week that takes place twice a year and showcases some of the best works from Lisbon-based designers.

Lisbon has a lot of items to be proud of. Since one of Portugal’s main industries is footwear, you can check out many high-quality footwear that can beat Italy’s footwear standards. Other souvenir-worthy items that have a distinct Lisbon vibe include luxurious soaps, cork-made products, wool accessories, and gourmet delicacies (such as canned sardines, oils, cheeses, custard tarts, chocolates, and more).

Marco&Friends Jeep Tour around Lisbon and Belem

We had an absolute blast spending time with Marco! He's knowledgeable, funny and very accommodating! We will be recommending him to everyone who we know goes to Portugal. We got to see more in 1 day than we would have in at least 3. I feel extremely lucky to have found this site and and coming across this tour offer. Thank you so much to Marco for making our trip so memorable and fun!

Let's Ride Vespas Around Lisbon!

Lisbon on a Vespa was terrific fun. We had never ridden Vespas before so after a brief introduction we were off! We saw loads; from the tiny streets in Alfama to the tops of the hills to take in the amazing views and finishing at LX factory where we enjoyed a well earned beer on the rooftop bar. Lisbon is such a cool city and riding Vespas is the coolest way to see it. Fantastic fun. Thankyou "With Locals" will certainly come to you for more activities on my next city break.

Lisbon's Favourites and Hidden Gems Tour

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone coming to Lisbon for the first time. The tour was an excellent way to see the city and get our bearings. Isabel was excellent, knowledgeable, so welcoming and friendly throughout the tour. Half way through the tour we stopped off and had coffee and typical & delicious Portuguese pastry which was included in the price. Her knowledge about the city was second to none. Highly recommended and thoroughly enjoyed this 3 hour tour.

Top 5 Souvenir Items from Lisbon

  • Soaps – Fragrances have been popular since the 1800s, but have boomed significantly in recent years when Oprah Winfrey revealed Portuguese soaps are one of her favorite things. Notable soap shops in Lisbon are A Vida Portuguesa and Artes.
  • Tinned Fish – Known for its vintage packaging, tinned fish is found all over Lisbon, but you can never go wrong with any of the hundreds of varieties at Conserveira de Lisboa.
  • Cork products – Portugal produces most of the world’s cork, so expect a ton of cork-infused items like bags, shoes, furniture, clothes, and other trinkets. Special shops you should check out are Cork & Co. and Pelcor.
  • Gold –Aside from its churches, Lisbon is known for gold jewelry with up to 19.2 karats. Check out the jewelry stores lined in the Chiadro district.
  • Shoes – As the second-best source of finest shoes, right after Italy, Lisbon is home to many high-quality footwear. Some stores to visit include Foreva, Cubanas, Sapataria do Carmo and Luís Onofre.
