Why Lisbon?

If you’re dreaming about your next trip, come and discover Lisbon, a historical city full of stories to tell, where the sun shines 290 days a year and the average temperature rarely drops below 15 º C (59°F). A city where you feel safe wandering around day or night, where the cuisine is dedicated to creating over a thousand ways to cook the beloved bacalhau (salted cod), and where you’ll find hotels and restaurants to suit every taste, budget and requirement. Discover Lisbon, a city full of authenticity where old customs and ancient history intermix with cultural entertainment and hi-tech innovation. Lisbon is ageless, but it loves company, (…) being famous for its hospitality and the family-like way it welcomes visitors. (information from Visit Lisboa)
