Lisbon or in Portuguese Lisboa is the capital of Portugal, as well as its largest city, with over 500 thousand people living in the city and approximately 2.8 million inhabitants in the metropolitan area.
With the number of international tourists growing every year, Lisbon is among the 10 most visited cities in Europe. And many are the factors that explain this tourist boom. It enjoys a very pleasant weather (the Guincho beach, in Cascais, is an excellent option for a swim), it has great restaurants, the nightlife in Bairro Alto is vibrant, and there are lots of must-see places, as the typical neighbourhoods of Alfama and Mouraria, the Marquês de Pombal roundabout, as well as the Rossio and Chiado squares.
Take an electric yellow tram, cross downtown and go all the way up to São Jorge Castle, where you have amazing views over the city. Our Lisbon camera also gives you a panoramic view of another part of the city centre. Together with the Cultural Landscape of Sintra (in the metropolitan area of Lisbon), the Jerónimos Monastery and the Belém Tower are two UNESCO World Heritage Sites not to be missed in the city. And since you are in that area, take a picture in front of the Monument to the Discoveries while savouring a tasty Pastel de Belém. Following the Tagus River, you will come across Praça do Comércio, a large square also known as Terreiro do Paço, and then Parque das Nações (Park of Nations), a modern district, where you will find several hotels, the Casino, the Lisbon Oceanarium and the country's main concert arena. And just a 10-minute drive from here is Humberto Delgado Airport, Portugal's main international airport, which is served by a wide and effective network of public transportation, namely the Metro, Carris buses and aerobus, as well as taxis. In case you need transport directly to your hotel, booking an airport transfer or renting a car is also a comfortable way of getting there.
