The city itself is only four miles south of the airport - and can be reached via the 2ª Circular.
Lisbon is the capital city of Portugal- set right on the Tagus River (Rio Tejo). The city is made up of a number of neighbourhoods, each with their own unique charm, built on a series of hills. Your first stop should be Bairro Alto - where you'll enjoy widespread shopping and a thriving nightlife.
Fancy something more traditional? Alfama is the oldest part of Lisbon. You'll also see some of the best fado performances in the whole of Portugal. The lower town of Baixa has plenty of restaurants and galleries, and Lisbon's eccentric version of Paris’ Eiffel Tower - the famous Elevador de Santa Justa.
Take a trip to Belém and see the Monument to the Discoveries. This symbolises the country’s golden age of exploration. Head across the road to the Monastery of Jerónimos – an imposing World Heritage monument, and resting place of explorer Vasco da Gama. Don’t leave Belém without trying the custard tarts at Antiga Confeitaria de Belém. The local pastries are definitely worth braving the long queues for.
There's so much to discover in Lisbon. Hire an Avis car to see the city in style and comfort.
