Places to Stay
Accommodation in the central historic area tends to be more expensive and those on a budget should look slightly further out although it is recommended to stay close to a metro station for ease of getting around the city. For tourists visiting in peak season it is recommended to book well in advance and last minute deals are very rare.
It is generally recommended that tourists should stay close to the historic centre of Baixa, Chiado, Bairro Alto or close to the southern end of Avenida da Liberdade. These areas are the heart of Lisbon and all of the main tourist attractions are within walking distance. Bairro Alto is one of the main nightlife districts so it is highly recommended for those wishing to experience Lisbon nightlife. But you may want to also consider a hotel located closer or with easy commute Web Summit - EASy.... Just ask us!.
A Cultural Treat
Lisbon city perfectly reflects the Portuguese culture, which embraces modern culture whilst maintaining its unique heritage and traditions. Lisbon is constantly recognised as one of the greatest cities in the world, a claim confirmed by the “Lonely Planet Guides", which named Lisbon as one of the top 10 cities in the world to visit. Surprisingly enough, it still is one of the least visited capital cities in Europe.
Lisbon Airport is the main international airport of Portugal and provides direct connections to all major European cities, via the established airlines or the no thrill, low-cost alternatives. The airport itself is conveniently located within the city limits, and onward travel is extremely easy by taking either the metro or Aerobus bus service. The airport has undergone a major expansion with the construction of a new terminal building, and this handles all of the departures (not arrivals) for the low-cost airlines. Terminal 2 is very basic, with lots of standing around in long queues, and is only connected to the main terminal building by a limited bus service.
