Quality of life in Lisbon

Lisbon, one of the oldest cities in the world, is a charming mix of Paris and San Francisco—at a fraction of the price. It offers a relaxed and tolerant environment with great local cuisine. Its central areas are best navigated by foot, allowing you to enjoy the grand architecture and pleasant climate, while its affordable public transportation system offers easy access to the rest of the city.

Lisbon is one of the top ten city matches for 8.6% of Teleport users.
