Lisbon is a vibrant capital city providing a charming mixture of old and new. Built on a switch back of hills above the broad Tejo (Tagus) estuary, there are few cityscapes as startling and eccentric.
There are of course very
many restaurants in the city but you should visit at least one of the restaurants
which have 'Fado', a wonderful form of singing, unique to Portugal.
The districts are linked by an amazing network of cobbled streets, up whose steep gradients crank trams and funiculars.
Frequent trams and buses run to and from the city centre.
Please note that there is no lift, and due to the number of stairs at the entrance of the hotel, it is not suitable for people with walking difficulties.
There are many golf courses in the Lisbon area.
