wheelchair traveler

We will be spending a week in Lisbon in July. Looking for suggestions on what I will and will not be able to do. Should a bring a manual wheelchair rather than my small battery powered scooter? I can walk short distances, but don't do well on cobblestones. Thanks for your help.

I don't think I am the best person to help you, but In my opinion you should bring the one which you feel most comfortable.

Where are you going to stay and what are your interests?

Lisbon is quite hilly and most walkways have cobblestones.

you have to take hotel around rossio(baixa) of avenida de liberdade.here you have flat lisbon,you can go near the river and also reach the two train station Santa Apolonia and Cais do Sodre from here you can reach cascais and probably the nice sea promenade between cascais and estoril.I think is beter to take the manual wheelchair for take with you in train,taxi and metro's.
