Having Fun While Strolling and Shopping on Rua Augusta

Large arrow left

The Rua Augusta is an area in lower Lisbon near the Praca do Comercio. The architecture is old and many of the structures are original.

This is a very beautiful street. The area is a wide, mosaic tiled walkway and it is closed to traffic. At the end of the Rua Augusta is the huge and imposing Arco Triunfal that leads right into the Praca do Commercio which is the heart of Lisbon.

It is also a lot of fun if you enjoy travel and shopping.
There are upscale stores, mimes, small kiosks selling leather goods, jewelry, souvenirs,and sodas.

This bustling street is one of the many sites on my list of "Don't miss" when I am in Lisbon.

After a morning of shopping and strolling, walk over to one of the restaurants in the Praca do Comercio for lunch and a cool drink before you continue your discoveries in this ancient, cosmopolitan capital city. Perhaps you will choose the Alfama or the Rossio.

Drink it all in so you can savor the memories.

I am looking forward to my next visit.
