Thank you all for your replies. They are all appreciated. Know that I have sent for Rick's book but if you wouldn't mind, I would like to ask a couple of additional questions.
First, has anyone taken one of the "Tuk tuk" tours? If so, would you recommend them, bear in mind that my wife and I are nearing 70 and my wife has had some back problems so looking for options.
Second, Lisa, do you know if one can take a taxi to the castle where the Alfama Walk begins? Also, what neighborhoods would it take us through?
Third, hotel recommendations would be appreciated by all, preferably away from the cruise ship clientele.
Suki, I like all your suggestions but as Alan suggests, we're going to have to be very selective so my question to you is, if I can only do one art museum, which would you suggest?
Dave, thanks for all the helpful websites. I will definitely make it to Manteigaria Bakery. Looks like a must do!
Thanks to all,
