When you pass by you can barely notice this small, amazing shop that is also one of the most famous and iconic stores of the city. Everyone in Lisbon knows (or should know) what’s on at Rua do Carmo, 87-A since 1925. This cluttered old shop, which keeps the original decoration style with wood furniture, uses the original craft production processes in the manufacture of gloves for all tastes. A must see to a complete Lisbon experience.
Rua do Carmo 87 –A
Opens Monday to Saturday from 10am to7pm

The Casino Estoril is the biggest casino in Europe, where you can gamble, assist to a show, have a drink or dinner in one of their restaurants (we recommend Mandarim,, the best Chinese restaurant in Portugal). Located at about 20 km from Lisbon, it has a beautiful garden in front, that goes down towards the Atlantic Ocean.
If you prefer not to leave the city, you have the alternative of the Lisbon Casino. At the modern Parque das Nações area, it’s architecture combines with the surroundings with a minimalist and white decoration. Both of them promise good leisure time and many activities for a gambling Lisbon Experience.
Both Casinos are open every day (except December 24)
Casino Estoril from 3pm to 3am
Casino de Lisboa: Sunday to Thursday from 3pm to 3am / Friday and Saturday from 4pm to 4am.

When the words “pasteis de massa tenra” are heard, all Alfacinha thinks immediately in one place, Frutalmeidas. Here you can buy different kinds of fresh fruit, and taste the famous pastries. This baked goods are light and fatty but firm enough to support the weight of the filling, in this case minced meet.
To drink, try one of the various options of fresh fruit juices and for dessert the strawberry cake with whipped cream. With all this extra weight, a walk along the seven hills city might be a good idea. A caloric but delicious Lisbon experience!

Although situated in the oldest neighborhood in Lisbon, where Fado is king, this bar leaves the national songs at the door. Here the smell, the colors and furniture takes you to the paradisiac island of Bali, Indonesia.
Between various cocktails, you should try the apple mojito (my favourite) and the delicious Sunday brunchs followed by an oriental massage. Often on Mondays, they serve some of the best sushi in Lisbon,be sure to check it out. A truly Lisbon experience Buda style!
