Lisbon, a tourist hot spot for many years, is now experiencing a revival. It attracts thousands of tourists despite being in the shadows of other tourist hotspots such as Paris, London, and Barcelona. A weekend in Lisbon has been more appealing than ever thanks to the excellent weather and reasonably priced flights.
Lisbon is a city of charming cobblestone streets, hilltop views, and world-class dining. But the real draw to the city is its lifestyle. Lisbon’s people are friendly and relaxed. They can speak at least three languages fluently. Lisbon residents tend to avoid the hustle and bustle of large European cities. If you are looking for an escape from the rat race, Lisboetas is ready to help you.
It’s best to live in a short-term rental and not stay at a hotel. Here are some Lisbon rentals apartments to help you plan your perfect vacation.
