With a 25 minutes ride from the airport to the centre, the Metro is a useful tool for business travellers looking for a quick and convenient form of transport to their serviced apartments in Lisbon on arrival. In addition, the city has a tram, train and bus network that connect the city with other Portuguese towns and cities, as well as the Humberto Delgado Airport within the city limits.

The city also boasts a range of musical venues including the Teatro Nacional de Sao Carlos Opera House and the Centro Cultural de Belem which provide year round performances.

Lisbon, like much of Portugal, benefits from a warm and sunny climate, with July, its hottest month, receiving an average temperature of 23.5C and eleven hours of daily sunshine. The coldest month, January, only drops to an average of 11C. In September, the average sea temperature is 19.9C – making it perfect for those looking to swim during their stay.

Facts about Lisbon

Although the city itself seems relatively underpopulated compared with other European capitals, Lisbon’s urban area has a population of 2.8 million, making it the tenth most populated area in the EU. It is also considered an ‘alpha-level’ city because of its importance in terms of finance, tourism, education and trade, meaning business in the city attracts many visitors and the subsequent demand for serviced apartments in Lisbon is always high.  

Lisbon History

Originally a municipium established by Julius Caesar, Lisbon is the second-oldest European capital city. Having been ruled by Germanic tribes from the fifth century and Moors from the 18th century, the city was reconquered in the twelfth century and has since been a key Portuguese city.

Economy in Lisbon

The Lisbon region produces almost half of the Portuguese GDP. As a chief seaport and financial centre, Lisbon is a rapidly growing economic region, and is also home to the most developed mass media sector in the country, as well as several automobile manufacturers.
