2 days in Lisbon and then embarking on a cruise

There will be four of us spending 2 days in Lisbon prior to our cruise next summer. Any suggestions as to transportation to cruise terminal, nearby accommodations, attractions, and restaurants are welcome. We are all seasoned travelers and enjoy great food specially "local gems", and wine. Looking forward to a port wine tasting, suggestions welcome. Thanks!

You'll need to tell us which cruise terminal you are leaving from, as they are at opposite ends of the city.

Tattoosydney I have read the questions and answers. However, since it is my first time there I am not sure what applies since I need to be closer to the port as far as accommodations and places to eat. Thanks.

We loved Lisbon. Some things to choose from on our blog

…blogspot.com.au/2012/11/lisbon_21.html

You might enjoy Olivier or Guilty (run by the same people) for interesting food and good service. For traditional fish, maybe Restaurante Martinho de Arcada in the arcade of Praca do Comercio. Very old and quite famous, but only order the fish, it is their speciality. My meat dish was not very good.

For Port tasting try Solar do Vinho do Porto at Miradouro São Pedro de Alcântara (View point, Belvedere).

Restaurants: We have douzens of good restaurants, Largo (S. Carlos Theatre), Bica do Sapato, Sacramento, Olivier, Kais, Belcanto.

Taxis are very cheap and the piers are all near Lisbon's downtown.

Lisbon has a lot of attrations and quarters to visit, Old and Modern blended in a just few miles. Two days is not enough but you can see the highlights.
