... make our "sun-slapped" bodies feel a little better. After dinner and a few Mojitos, we all were tired from the sun and decided to call it an early night.. or what we thought was going to be an early night.. On the way home from dinner Cheska and I ran into some friends we had made the previous day (one of which was from Penn State.. small world). After they told us it was their last night in town, we decided to join them for a few more drinks at a near-by bar. ...
what a day! Such an awesome place. Started the day slowly with a lie in, even though we went to bed early and it was clocks back!! Unheard of, but we all needed a sleep. Ship didnt arrive in Lisbon until 12.30pm so we just pottered about until 11 and then went up on deck (found a secret deck right at the front of the ship where there was nobody) and watched the arrival up the River Tejo, and under an amazing bridge which looked a bit like ...
... 2000 sunrises since the Animal and the Lumix first courted. An event that deserved grand celebrations and so the two segwayed their way to a delightful sunset dinner on the River Targus.
So the quest came to a conclusion and the 7 parted ways until Mallorca.
Only so much can be told through written word, more moments were captured on the photos that follow taken by Andrea on her trusty Lumix. Thank you for capturing so many ...
... of streets where trams still operated (both new and old style trams sharing the same tracks), some government buildings etc. This area of town could do with a good cleaning of the streets and footpaths as could quite a bit of the area that we walked around in today. Perhaps it is the result of cost cutbacks by the government – shame if it is. At the waterfront we could see the Abril suspension bridge, obviously inspired by the ...
On Saturday, because our passes were still good for a couple of hours, we got on one of the other trams that went to the outskirts of town (about 4 miles away) to Belem. There we saw really good views of the April 25th bridge, which looked just like the Golden Gate bridge in San Fran. We found out it was built by the same builders, so no wonder it looks the same. There was also a monument to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Alif Hotel Lisbon
Das Hotel ist wirklich schön. Der Service ist komfortabel und zum Frühstück gibt es reichlich Auswahl. In manchen Fällen hätte es sogar 4 Sterne verdient. Es liegt ca. 2-3 Minuten von der nächsten Metrostation entfernt.
Schönes Hotel in einer guten Lage
Waren für drei Nächte im Alif Hotel und fanden es sauber und komfortabel. Sehr gute Lage in der Nähe der Metro, mittel derer man gut innerhalb von Lissabon herumkommt. Es war wirklich angemessen. Leider war der Ausblick aus unserem Zimmer einfach hässlich, da es nach hinten hinaus lag.
Nice hotel in good location.
stayed for three nights in Alif Hotel,found it clean and comfortable.very good location near metro which is a great way to travel around Lisbon.It was very reasonable.Our only complaint was the view from our room was awful as it was at the back of the hotel.
Hotel is in a very nice place. Services is comfortable, breakfest is plentiful. It could be 4 stars in some cases. It is 2-3 minutes from metro station.
i got the Alif from a list for people attending conferences. my room was pretty cheap at 60 euros a night. i was pleased with the location, a bit out of the centre of town, on an underground line, with very easy access to the airport (the aerobus stops at Campo Pequeno) and to the city. the hotel looked a bit shabby from the outside, but inside it was fine - my room was clean and well maintained. i hardly use hotel bars but i got cold sparkling water there and the bar area itself was very pleasant. the restaurant is on the 9th floor with good views particularly over the architecturaly interesting old bull-ring, now being redeveolped into shops / cafes / offices. if you want a vegetarian restaurant, you must go to Terra in Barrio Alto - excellent.
