TRAVEL & LODGING

To get to Lisbon: 

Where to stay in Lisbon?

 

There are several airlines and low fare companies offering direct flights to Lisbon from most European capitals. You can also reach Lisbon via other cities like Faro (3h) and Porto (2h30), using transport options like trains, buses and car rentals.
 

Consider that even if flight costs to Lisbon may seem higher than other destinations, this is more than compensated by the low costs for general transport, food&drinks and accommodation!
