City facts

Lisbon is located on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean and has a very mild climate. Even at night in winter (between December and February) the air temperature rarely drops below 9°C (48°F). The summers, on the other hand, can get very hot.

The main language spoken in Lisbon is Portuguese, so it’s useful to learn at least a couple of phrases before you go - the locals will appreciate it! English is also quite well known, especially by people working in the service industry, and French and Spanish can also be heard.

Top sights and activities

  • Baixa and Chiado: Anyone who has visited before will tell you that Lisbon’s biggest attraction is Lisbon itself. Drive up to the city centre, find the perfect parking spot via Empark and dive right into one of the most fascinating cities of Europe. Stroll through the old shopping district of Baixa, take in some culture at Museu Colecção Berardo or one of the countless small art galleries, appreciate remnants of stunning and enigmatic Moorish architecture, eat like a Portuguese in Chiado area and enjoy truly authentic music at a local Fado club. Or try out one of the countless other things this unique place has to offer.
  • 25 de Abril Bridge: The best way to make your entrance into Lisbon is by driving over the majestic 25 de Abril Bridge. Considered by many the Europe’s answer to the iconic Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, this beautiful landmark offers views of Tejo river and the panoramic beauty of the Portugal’s capital. If you arrive early, it’s worth driving back here later for a spectacular sunset.
  • Belém. One of the charming parts of Portugal’s capital has history, monuments, and stunning architecture on every step of the way. Easy to reach by car or on foot, Belém attracts visitors with such landmarks as Torre de Belém of the Belém Tower, the Jerónimos Monastery, and Padrão dos Descobrimentos or the Monument to the Discoveries.
  • National Archaeological Museum. One of the largest and most interesting museums in the country, Lisbon’s Archaeology Museum has a wide variety of exhibits dedicated to the different ancient cultures that inhabited what is now Portugal, as well as classical civilizations from around the world. Just like some of the aforementioned attractions, the museum is in the Belém district.
  • Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology. Situated on the coast of the River Tagus (or Tejo) in one of the most futuristic and modern buildings in the country, the MAAT is known both for its exterior and fascinating collections. In addition to both permanent and rotating exhibitions dedicated to the intersection of the disciplines noted in its name, the museum is also a regular site for various cultural events. If you liked MAAT, you might also want to check out the neighboring Tejo Power Station, an example of surprisingly picturesque industrial architecture that currently hosts the Electricity Museum. The MAAT museum is situated in the aforementioned Belém neighborhood.
  • Belém Palace. Yet another gem of Belém that’s deserving of a special mention, this is not just a single building, but a whole palatial complex of gardens, courtyards, and verandas. Known for its distinctive pinkish facades and dating back to the 18th century, the former residence of the Portuguese royal family (and now the home of the President of Portugal) is a stunning mixture of Baroque, Mannerist, and other styles. See the official Lisbon tourist website to learn about admission. 

Traffic and parking

  • You can only enter the roundabout after giving way to cars already on it.
  • The car documentation and insurance always has to be inside a vehicle.
  • Drivers can only use a mobile phone if it is a hands free or an earpiece.
  • The legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.2 for novice drivers.
  • Safety cameras are in use.
  • On-street parking is available in the center of Lisbon. In the red zone, parking costs €1.60/hr ($1.9/hr), with a maximum stay of 2 hours. In the yellow zone, parking costs €1.20/hr ($1.42/hr),  with a maximum stay of 4 hours. In the green zone, parking costs €0.80/hr ($0.95/hr), with a maximum stay of 4 hours. 
  • There are numerous car parks in the city center where parking costs €15-45 ($18-53) per day. A better option might be heading south of the city center where parks like Santa Apolónia, Docas and Docas Ponte charge around €5-6 ($6-7) per day. Look up more information about parking in Portugal on Empark.
  • When parking in a street, your car must be parked facing the direction of travel.

Toll roads

A lot of motorways in Portugal are subject to toll fees. See the official site for maps and prices.

Ideas for day trips

  • Sintra: A trip to Portugal won’t be complete without visiting Sintra. Its spectacular castles of Castelo dos Mouros and Palácio de Pena are less than half an hour trip from Lisbon. There are always many visitors, so the drive around Sintra will be slow, but that only adds to the experience. Do note that most streets here are one-way only. Continue onwards to the spectacular Cabo de Roca, the westernmost point of the continent of Europe.
  • Serra de Arrabida: On of the most scenic drives in the whole country is just southeast of Lisbon, in Serra da Arrabida national park. The road, Estrada de Escarpa (N379-1), winds through steep limestone hills offering gorgeous vistas of ageless cliffs, stunning beaches and turquoise waters.
  • Nazaré: If you’re feeling truly adventurous, head north of Lisbon - in 90 minutes you will reach the beach town of Nazaré where the record for surfing the world’s highest wave was set. It is a beautiful and wild place where the Atlantic ocean comes in its full force. The charming Peniche is also on the way, offering more beginner-friendly surfing waves. On your way back, catch your breath in the town of Obidos - park outside its historical fortress, visit the bookshops and sample delicious jinja right on the street. Or visit one of the tiny beach villages where tasty bifanas, fish soups and bolinhos de bacalau are always on menu.
  • Cascais. One of the most popular day trips from Lisbon, Cascais is a lovely beach town on the mouth of the Tagus River. Its scenic location made it the favorite holiday home of Portuguese kings; nowadays, it attracts visitors with its beaches, parks, and churches, as well as the Boca de Inferno, or Hell’s Mouth, an impressive chasm in the coastal cliffs. Cascais is half an hour’s drive west of Lisbon and only 20 minutes south of Sintra, so both destinations can be visited on the same trip. The neighboring Cascais-Sintra Nature Park is also very much worth a visit.
  • Ericeira. A former fishing town-turned-seaside resort, Ericeira is one of the most popular day trips from Lisbon. As the previously mentioned Nazaré and Obidos, it is a popular surfing spot (although located closer to Sintra), but is equally known for its large green areas and delicious seafood. The drive northwest from Lisbon to Ericeira only takes about 50 minutes.

Most popular cars

The most popular rental type in Portugal is Economy, with Compact and Mini also quite frequent choices.

The most popular rental car in Portugal is the VW Polo, closely followed by the Ford Fiesta and the Fiat 500.

 

Further destinations

For more about traveling around Portugal with a rental car, check out our complete guide.

  • Alentejo. Southern Europe is nothing without its wine traditions and Portugal is no exception. The wine region of Alentejo makes for a great trip, not only for its excellent local produce but also this land’s endless horizons, rural guest houses and slow pace of life.
  • Northern Portugal. One of the most beautiful cities not just in the country, but arguably the whole of Europe, Porto is one of the highlights of any trip to Portugal. About three hours north of Lisbon, it is different in look and atmosphere, but just as fun to explore. Porto also offers access to the rest of the northern part of the country known for its green, mountainous landscapes, excellent wines, and Peneda-Gerês, Portugal’s only national park.
  • Algarve. If you are restless for a road trip, head south of Alentejo and you will soon reach Algarve. Do visit the world-famous beaches and charming coastal towns like Portimao, Albufeira, and Lagos, but don’t miss out on going inland to visit lesser-known but breathtaking mountain roads and nature reserves.

Then we drove up to the Douro Valley to drive through the area and visit some wineries. We then drove to Porto and parked the car for two days while there. Finally we passed through Nazare on our way back to Lisboa for our last night before returning the car.

We visited central Portugal and loved the small towns and scenery. We left Lisbon as soon as possible as it is congested and hard to get around if you are not familiar with it. The rest of Portugal is beautiful, the people are friendly, and it was economical.

First of all, it was not a vacation. We had work to do to bring up my late dad's condo to date. We did visit a few great places like Albufeira, Faro, Lisbon and the Salinas at Rio Maior. Beautiful country area! Also dined at a few great spots like Carvi and Viriato in Portimao, Ramiro's in Lisbon - the hype is real and O Nobre, also in Lisbon. Very high end, yet casual and comfortable. We also had great cod - Tiborna de Bacalhau and couscous dish with vegetables and local mushrooms at a little tiny place called Loja do Sal. It's as unpretentious as you're ever going to get with a quality of food that rivals high end such as O Nobre. Throughout the trip, our Seat Arona functioned really well. Be careful if you have a heavy foot on the highway. Gas consumption really goes up so maintain the speed limits and you'll save at the pump.

Portugal is a beautiful country and would love to come back. We didn’t have a car in Porto or Lisbon only when we left Lisbon and drove to Lagos. So glad we did because in the Algarve it’s not as walkable like Porto and Lisbon. We saw so much in our 10 days. Porto, Douro Valley, Lisbon, Sintra, Benagil Caves and so much more. Love Portugal.

The food and the Portuguese people were also great. Driving to and from the destinations in the Fiat 500 added to the fun. We will definitely be recommending a trip to Portugal and Opcao Rent a Car to our friends and family.

Travelling from Lisbon to the Algarve was very easy. The toll highways are excellent. The rest stops along the way are fantastic. We are from Canada and were impressed with the rest stops as we don’t have anything like that on our highways. The tolls were not expensive. There was so much to see and do in the Algarve , all I will say is exploring the small fishing villages along the coast was our favourite activity. The food was fantastic.

We got upgraded with a better car than the one we initially booked but it turned out to be great. Not only in the sense of getting more space and comfort but also a car you trust to go anywhere. We went to the south of Portugal, Algarve and sometimes had to drive on the sand or rocky paths and having a SUV was very practical.

Lisboa and Algarve- amazing food, awesome off the grid restaurants excellent seafood, great beaches, architecture, and art. The cost for most, even comparing dollars to euros was better than expected. The roads were fun to drive on, many were unpaved and winding through hills and wildernesses—so much to explore. The locals, residents, and vendors were very friendly and many spoke at least some English which was great for communication, dining, and directions. We cannot wait to go back!

Portugal is so beautiful!!! The people are very friendly, kind, and helpful. Love the culture in the coast and rural areas. We travel in our beautiful black Mercedes from Lisbon to Algarve back to Cascais then to Porto then to Avora and finally to back to Lisbon. We had a bit of bad luck in Porto. We had our backpacks stolen. Our passports, wallets with $800 cash and credit cards, souvenirs, my diary and some books. We got to visit two police stations to file police report and the American Embassy to get emergency passports. Even through all that we continued to enjoy our adventure!! Thanks for the great car at a great price. It was a wonderful trip!

Algarve region of Portugal is absolutely stunning. The city of Lagos is beautiful, clean, safe, easy to get around. Pearl food truck by the marina is outstanding for a sunset. Be sure to do a Kayaking tour of the caves. Same at Benagil caves. Great hike from Praia da Marinha do Benagil beach, where you can rent Kayaks for EUR15/person and work your way to the Benagil cave and other grottos. Once you're done with that activity and return your Kayak, walk up the stairs for a nice meal with a great view and amazing vibe at the Benagil Beach Club.
