The Portuguese capital is ther perfect place for the youngest people who come to the Portuguese capital to give a change in their professional life.

The Portuguese city stands on 7 hills (yes, just like Rome!) and is full of culture, history and green spaces.
It is wonderful also for those who love the sea. The the Atlantic Ocean is only about twenty minutes from the city centre.

Thanks to a mild climate that lasts most of the year, those who work often take advantage of the lunch break to visit beaches near Lisbon to relax under the sun.
Lisbon does not have a rowdy or chaotic atmosphere.

The most popular means of transport is the metro, which we highly recommend (preferred to buses and trams).

Lisbon is also the perfect destination for those looking for a quiet and safe place. Statistics show that Portugal is the third country in the world with the lowest crime rate. This must be taken into account.

The cost of living in the Portuguese capital is low. Food prices are cheap, much lower than in Italy and other European countries. Regarding the rent the peripheral areas are more affordable.

Compared to many other European capitals. Lisbon is well known for entertainment and culture.

The Portuguese capital’s weekends are full of events of all kinds: music, concerts, theatre shows, art exhibitions and trade fairs.
