I've been reading through some of the recommendations and all sound great... I am going with a friend to Lisbon Wed. thru Saturday this week. We are staying at Real Palacio Hotel.
While I speak a little Spanish, I find myself a little off balance with the Portuguese. Reading through menus I thought I would get the general idea- but I don't. How generous are people with pathetic Americans who can't speak the language?
Are there any places within walking distance of the hotel that would be fun and accessible for non speakers?
And any must sees while in Lisbon? while this is a business trip, we are going to sneak out for some fun, too!
