About Lisbon

Lisbon, the capital of Portugal and its largest city, lies in the north bank of the Tagus (Tejo) in the Portuguese Western coast. Foreign visitors will probably arrive at Lisbon's International Airport with an easy connection (about 15 minutes) by taxi or express bus to the hotels mentioned in the suggested accomodations section. Towns of touristic interest like Cascais, Estoril, Sintra , Óbidos and Mafra are within a one hour drive from Lisbon or easily reachable using public transportation (Portuguese Railways, Buses, and Lisbon Underground).

Due to the influence of the Atlantic Ocean, Lisboa has a pleasant climate throughout the year. The agreable temperatures in the summer months are an open invitation for a walk by the river or to spend an afternoon in one of the many street cafés to be found all over the town. Weather during July is generally pleaseantly hot.
