Best location! Cruisy people- pretty much every single person is an Aussie! The rooms are not to bad, bunk beds with an shared ensuite :)

Finally just by the Rossio we stumble upon the best restaurant of our visit. The tiled and cooling
environs of Leao d'Ouro restaurant, which has been serving since 1842, are a refined and beautiful place for us to spend an hour out of the intense afternoon heat. It also serves a wonderful lunch special of just 8 Euros a head for fish so we tuck into fabulous salmon and sea bass, washed down with a fabulous vino verdhe all for ...

One in particular stayed on the bus until we went to the station. It happened to be the last stop. He walked us over to the taxi area and hailed a taxi for us. We went into the bus terminal, ...
