Lisbon, the capital city of the Portuguese Republic, is situated at the mouth of the Tagus: it is the westernmost capital of a mainland European country.
The city occupies an area of 84.8 km2, and its city boundaries, unlike those of most major cities, are narrowly defined by historical center.
Lisbon's public transport network is extremely far-reaching and reliable and has its metro as its main artery, connecting the city centre with the upper and eastern districts, and now reaching the suburbs. A traditional form of public transport in Lisbon is the tram. There are four commuter train lines departing from Lisbon.
Places to visit:
• Arco Triunful de rua Augusta - old section
• National Coach Museum
• St. George's Castle
• Jerónimos Monastery
Lisbon enjoys a Subtropical-Mediterranean climate, with mild winters and very warm summers. Lisbon is very close to the ocean and that brings windy and fast-changing weather, so you'd better bring a jacket or an umbrella with you, at least in winter, spring and autumn.
