Lisbon is Portugal’s capital city - and its largest. Situated atop 8 hills along the Tagus River, Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world, with roots going back more than 3,000 years. With an estimated population of just about half a million, the city is busy and vibrant without feeling over-crowded. Lisbon is one of the cheapest major cities in Europe to visit or reside and provides exceptional value for your money. On top of all of this, Lisbon is also extremely safe with a low crime rate and violent crime is very rare.
Lisbon is a haven for artists, musicians, poets and lovers. Also known as the “City of Light”, history and charm combine in Europe’s sunniest city, making it one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Pastel-colored buildings, terracotta rooftops and ancient castles & churches dot the landscape. Even the ground in Lisbon is magical – the city is known for its artful mosaic-paved streets and sidewalks.
Outside of the “old city”, history gives way to the future as trendy neighborhoods, rooftop bars, contemporary art galleries and modern architecture take over. Neighborhood markets, public gardens and sidewalk cafes are also abundant, providing for a classic European experience.
