Lay My Head : Portugal and Spain

Since our trip to Italy last Fall, I’ve been longing to soon return to Europe. On the top of our list are traveling to Portugal and Spain. When visiting Italy, we were fortunate enough to stay at some very good hotels. When determining the best accomodations for your vacation, its important to do plenty of research. We’ve discovered a cool site for worldwide hotel bookings, especially withn Europe and the United Kingdom. Considered to be the “European Hotel Specialist”, eurobookings.com has specific knowledge and expertise of local accomodations. This insider information can be very helpful particularly for first-time visitors to Europe. The site includes detailed hotel information, great photos and maps. There is also a listing of nearby attractions and other hotels in the area.

Portugal
Lisbon is a vibrant city, and also known as “the town of the seven hills”. So be prepared for uphill journeys. So much history can be found in Lisbon, as it has been the economic and cultural center of Portugal for centuries. There’s a wide range of things to do while in Lisbon, from visiting the numerous museums in the city to experiencing the local coastal cuisine of primarily fish and seafood. Regardless of your budget, there are a variety of hotels in Lisbon, such as the Sana Metropolitan Hotel and Residencial Mar Dos Acores.

Madrid
I like to think of Madrid as the “heart of Spain”, geographically and figuratively. According to Frommers.com, the mayor of Madrid launched a new 7-year city program in 2005 aimed at transforming the capital into a world-class cosmopolitan center, with improved Metro and rail transport and the expansion of new barrios, or districts, especially in the north of the city. With this revitalization, there are numerous hotels in Madrid Norte available in the area.

If you’re like us and can’t wait to get back to Europe…add Portugal and Spain to the top of your list.

  2. I miss Portugal more and more each day. These long Canadian winters make you want to pack up and leave for good. I’ll be back again this year.
