... I have to wonder; does this desire for your own identity, from a state’s perspective, really dictate how you act in the international realm? That seems like a trivial way to make decisions that affect your people, but it could be a decisive factor in some ways. Spain practically barreled its way into the EU, and some say that it was so desperate to enter because Portugal was in the process of becoming a member. ...
... and revisited the lookout.
It was nice to be able to enjoy the sun on the back as we walked in to the town for a nice lunch and beer. As the day came to an end, we saved the 11th century Castle of S. Jorge overlooking Lisbon for last. The views were amazing and the castle was great although there was just the exterior of the castle.
Lisbon was great and there are many nice places to ...
... breaking on the backside of this reef and caught us totally off guard. Before I could even get the phrase "oh ****!" out, I was knocked over. Pete was knocked over too and we were basically facing each other as we were getting dragged across this razor sharp reef. I couldn't see where I was going and only knew that there were some pretty large rocks somewhere in the direction we were heading and I was hoping to not get swept into them. The reef was ...
... from the ovens! They were really, really good! Great coffee too!
Back down to street to stick our noses into a ....... Cathedral! - actually the Jeronimos Monastery.(see the queue outside here too) This is one of Lisbon's most prominent landmarks, the resting place of Vasco de Gama, and is so huge and ornate and the fact that it was built in 1459, it is hard not to be impressed, even though we are very 'quick viewers'!! We haggle with a little lady selling 'hand made' ...
... all I could think about during the tour was how miserably cold I felt. I couldn't tolerate Lisbon's unseasonably cold weather another day so I finally gave in and bought a men's sweatshirt at H&M with my mom after finishing our 3 hour tour and a delicious Portugese lunch at a quaint little restaurant not fat from the end point of our tour. I had fish and shrimp shiskabob, which was absolutely delicious. As always, also I included in our ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Zenit Lisboa Lisbon
Hôtel excellent !
Nous sommes descendus dans cet hôtel pour un week-end à Lisbonne, nous étions invités à un mariage et cet hôtel nous avait été recommandé. C'était génial, surtout vu son prix. Tout nouveau, avec une décoration moderne, une télé écran plat dans la chambre etc. On nous a accidentellement donné la chambre avec un accès handicapé donc elle était encore plus grande que les autres. La situation était bonne car l'hôtel est situé dans un quartier résidentiel, donc c'est plus calme, mais à quelques stations de métro du centre-ville. Il y a cependant pas mal de choses à faire dans le coin, comme les boutiques, les centres commerciaux etc. J'étais vraiment contente de mon séjour là-bas et je conseillerais cet hôtel à tous.
Hautement recommandé !
C'est un super hôtel au centre de Lisbonne proche du métro et des autres moyens de transports. Je n'ai payé que 98 euros par nuit ! Le petit déjeuner est assez bon. Tout dans cet hôtel est parfait, surtout à si bon marché ! Hautement recommandé !
Recently stayed at the Zenit Lisboa (Oct 5-9, 2006) and have to say that this was a really good value. The hotel is one block from the Saldanha Metro stop, which is two stops from the Marques do Pombal stop where you can transfer Metro lines or catch many of the main bus lines. My travelmate discovered that the local bus (Line 12) took us through local neighborhoods to the Feira das Ladros (the Tues/Sat flea market) in about 15 minutes, much more convenient than the conventional Metro then Tram 28 tourist route that most people take.
Great Hotel in the centre of Lisbon near metro and other transports.
I payed only 98 euros per night! Quite good breakfast. Everything is perfect in this Hotel especially for the small price! Highly recommended!
We stayed at this hotel for a weekend in Lisbon, we were invited to a wedding and someone suggested this hotel. It was great, especially for its price. Brand new, modern decoration, flat screen in the room etc. We also accidentally for the room with the handicap access so it was even larger than the other ones. The location is good because it is a residential area, so quieter but only a few stops from the downtown area. At the same time, there were also things to do around there, such as shops, malls etc. I was really happy we stayed there and I would recommended to anyone.
Dieses Hotel war fantastisch mit seinen modernen Zimmern und den neumodischen Einrichtungen, wie dem Flachbildschirmfernseher. Das Zimmer und Bad waren groß. Das Hotelpersonal war sehr hilfsbereit und äußerst freundlich.
