Ribeira das Naus - A walk along the river and sunbathing
"Lisboetas” (Lisbon locals) and you can walk by the river at Ribeira das Naus, that goes from Cais do Sodré to Praça do Comércio. Take a book, a hat, some sunscreen and sit down to soak up the sun and enjoy the view to the river and bridge.
On Sundays you will probably see some kids in their small sailboats taking sail classes. You can also try to find a beach that was hidden since the 1755 earthquake.
Go from Praça do Comércio to Cais do Sodré and just before you arrive there, you have a kiosk with a terrace. It can be a bit pricey but it's a great place to chill out near the river (you dont have to buy anything if you stay on the grass or the steps near the water)

Avenida da Liberdade
This boulevard, built in the 19th century in the style of the Champs-Elysees in Paris, is the main avenue of the city, and has lots of shops of expensive brands. It runs north for a mile (1.6km) from Restauradores to Marquês de Pombal and is more than 300 feet (90m) wide. Today the avenue still has a certain elegance with fountains and cafe tables shaded by trees, as well as a pavement decorated with abstract patterns.
