Life in Lisbon

 

Lisbon provides the historical benefits of being in the place where the first steps towards globalization were taken centuries ago. It has a vibrant modern ambiance, affordable living costs, and sits poised as the geographical and strategic bridge between Europe and the United States. You may count on 252 sunny days per year and 495 beaches on the Portuguese Coast.

 A CITY FULL OF HISTORY AND SURROUNDED BY COUNTLESS ATTRACTIONS

 Lisbon, a city of beautiful views, buildings, amazing weather and fantastic people is one of the oldest cities in Europe. Superbly located on the north bank of the Tagus River, Lisbon boasts a thousand years of history and is peppered with monuments of great importance reflecting the key moments of the country’s history.

 The city’s revival in the past 20 years has been astonishing and its attractions are countless: from the typical charming architecture, traditional restaurants, bars and iconic cafes, cosy bookshops, busy markets, fun nightclubs, theatres and museums to the extensive gardens and lovely places to eat, drink and relax along the riverside.

Minutes away from the city centre there’s an extraordinary coastline with a wide variety of unique beaches, ideal for all sorts of water sports such as surf and windsurfing and many other outdoors entertaining activities.

Although the current economic climate has taken a bite out of Portugal’s economy and the country is facing a recession, Lisbon is still capable of putting on a fabulous time.
