We will only be staying 3 days so want to be somewhere central, with cafes/restaurants nearby. Which would be the best area to stay? Any hotel recommendations would be welcomed. We’d prefer something traditional or independent than a chain hotel. Budget up to Â£100 per night.
We will have a full day in Lisbon prior to joining a guided tour. Our hotel is mid-city. Can anyone recommend a ‘hop-on / hop-‘ bus line? Any recommendations about spots to visit that are in easy walking distance to centre city? Thanks
