Guide for places to stay in Lisbon

About

Lisbon is a land of staggering beauty. An unpretentious city that oozes, at once, simplicity and an irresistible charm. Think of pastel-hued houses covered in richly ornate tiles, quaint cobblestoned streets that hide rich intangible culture around every corner, and big-name riverfront historic attractions. Now, add to this an unlimited variety of local eateries and pastry shops where you can try Portugal’s unbeatable food and wine. Sounds like a plan? Then get ready to experience Lisbon at its finest. Of one thing we’re sure: the city will captivate your senses and keep you coming back for more!

Best time to visit

Spring is an amazing time to travel to Lisbon. You’ll experience sunny days and brisk air while having the chance to marvel at the local trees covered in a delicate blanket of flowers.

For making the most out of Portugal’s beaches, visit Lisbon during the summer. But beware, as temperatures can reach 40º and be overwhelming for some. Plus, Lisbon’s tourist attractions tend to get packed during that time of year.

Getting there

Lisbon has one international airport, the Humberto Delgado Airport, which is located only 7 km northeast of the city center. Travelers usually stay in the center of Lisbon and getting it is easy, as the metro is connected to the airport.
