DO book a hotel in the centre. Baixa, Bairro Alto or Alfama are good quarters to stay.

If you hate walking and walking stairs, DON't go!

3 Days is enough to see the most. DON't go longer. You have to walk a lot and will be very tired.

If you DON't like shops, stay home. You see shops everywhere and I think it's great!

If you like to eat early, DON't go! The Portugese eat around 3 pm and between 9 and 11 pm. If you go around 2 or 8, you certainly have a table.
