In Lisbon, shopping near the cruise port affords those passengers enjoying a shore excursion – or any visitor within the vicinity of the Santa Apolónia cruise terminal – ideal opportunities to purchase souvenirs of their time in the Portuguese capital. There are several stores and boutiques and even an art gallery sited within easy walking distance of Lisbon’s main cruise terminal. One of these is Amar Lisboa, a wonderfully attractive store selling colourful artisan wares with a designer flourish. Nearby Bababodo specializes in handmade ethnic jewellery and women’s fashion. A visit to Portugal wouldn’t be complete without tasting some wine, and at Tábuas you can sample a range of wines before buying a bottle or two of your favourite label. You don’t have to walk too far from the terminal building to visit Deli Delux. Here you’ll find a fantastic range of wines and gourmet food products to eat in or take away. The quirky-sounding Menina Sardinha also sells wines along with jam, honey and gourmet olive oil. Similarly, at Tesouros de Portugal the emphasis is on regional fare and handicraft. It also doubles up as a bar and, at night, a restaurant. Walking west from the terminal as you approach the downtown district, lookout for Silva & Feijó, a handicraft store that’s been trading for nearly 100 years. It’s all here and more, including some wonderful cork products. If you’re in port on a Tuesday or Saturday, make sure you experience Feira da Ladra, the self-styled “Thieve’s Market”. You’ll probably find a kitchen sink among the antique bric-a-brac. For last-minute souvenir hunting, try Aromas & Handicraft. Otherwise for the more discerning, you have the Lisbon Art Gallery.
