The city’s setting is unparalleled – undoubtedly one of the most photogenic in Europe, it is friendly and safe, with a rich history and culture dating back to the Golden Age of the 15th and 16th centuries. The food and wine is excellent and very good value for money. From cool bars and clubs to World Heritage Sites, from speed-boats to trams, from state-of- the-art conference hotels to small boutique properties within former palace buildings, from football to surfing Lisbon has something for everyone!
Warm in summer and mild in winter make this a good, year-round destination.
Given the history of this city – Lisbon’s history dates back some 300,000 years and ranks as one of the oldest cities in the world – and the fact that it has 2 UNESCO sites within the city itself sightseeing options abound. The traditional sightseeing activities can be spiced up by including the wonderful yellow trams that trundle through the heart of the historical heart of the city as well more contemporary elements such as Go Cars and Segways. The majestic Tagus River allows visitors to view the city from a different perspective be it on speed-boats, yachts or more leisurely cruise vessels, and of course, the Atlantic lies but a few kilometres away lending itself to regattas and a myriad of team-building options. Golf is big here and some of the country’s top courses are within easy reach of the city.
Many of the large city centre hotels have excellent meeting facilities. These are complemented by 3 purpose-built conference and exhibition centres as well as various unique city-centre spaces that can be converted into unique event venues.
Access: British Airways, Iberia, Lufthansa, TAP, KLM, Air France, Swiss and Continental all serve the city with most European capital cities being a 2-3 hour flight away. Plus did you know that the airport is just 7km from the city?
Venues: Both in the city and in the surrounding areas options are plentiful: convents, palaces, sail boats, wine cellars and museums.
