LISBOA

DISCOVER LISBON

A historical city full of stories to tell, where the sun shines 290 days a year and the temperature rarely drops below 15oC.

A city where you feel safe wandering around day or night, where the cuisine is dedicated to creating over a thousand ways to cook the beloved bacalhau (salted cod), and where you’ll find hotels and restaurants to suit every taste, budget and requirement.

Discover Lisbon, a city full of authenticity where old customs and ancient history intermix with cultural entertainment and hi-tech innovation. Lisbon is ageless, but it loves company, as you’ll find out if you meet someone and ask them to explain, with lots of gestures and repetition, where the best place is to listen to Fado.

After all, Lisbon is famous for its hospitality and the family-like way it welcomes visitors..

THE WEATHER

Lisbon has mild to warm moderate temperatures. Winters are very mild for its latitude, influence of the Gulf Stream. Average high for May is 22ºC.

n Lisbon, the summers are warm, dry, and mostly clear and the winters are cold, wet, windy, and partly cloudy. Over the course of the year, the temperature typically varies from 47°F to 83°F and is rarely below 40°F or above 94°F.

Lisboetas love their early morning and late afternoon riverside strolls, and plenty of visitors also slip on comfortable walking shoes to explore Lisbon’s historic neighborhoods on foot. Navigating the maze of narrow and hilly streets, courtyards and staircases in Alfama, Mouraria and Madragoa can be a challenge in the summer heat, but the experience is at the top of most visitors’ must-do lists. Remember that flat, riverside neighborhoods such as Baixa, Cais do Sodré, Belém and Oriente are more manageable and just as picturesque!

The black-and-white patterns of the city’s calçada portuguesa(Portuguese pavements) are one of Lisbon’s calling cards, but be aware this is not the most walking-friendly surface in wet weather. The slick cobblestones can become slippery and are especially treacherous when making steep, downhill strides.
