Safety is always one of the biggest concerns when travelling, specially with children, but not to Portugal. According to a 2022’s study by Global Peace index, Portugal is the world’s 6yh safest country.
The cultural scene in Lisbon today is a vibrant combination of old and new, as the ghosts of Lisbon’s grand past echo evocatively around the city’s contemporary venues.
The heart of Lisbon is filled with wide avenues, green trees, modernist-style buildings, mosaic decorations and numerous cafes.
The city is now being reborn and renovated and was recently considered one of the trendiest cities of the world.
In general, Portugal boasts a temperate climate all year round with long hot summers, warm spring and autumn months and relatively mild winters. The city of Lisbon and its surroundings are located in the coastal area, facing the Atlantic Ocean.
The capital, Lisbon, is a captivating city filled with fascinating history and can be explored very conveniently. Visit the famous neighborhoods of Alfama, Mouraria and Graça, the city’s oldest quarters and perhaps its most atmospheric parts. Nearby, Lisbon’s dramatically located Castle dates back to Roman times and offers breathtaking city panoramas over roof-tops and across the mighty River Tagus, the waterfront suburb of Belém - the departure point for Portugal’s great discoverers of the 15th and 16th centuries - and the impressive Lisbon sights, thoughtfully clustered together.
Portugal is an exceedingly friendly place. Its people are some of the nicest around to visiting tourists and truly have pleasure and enjoyment being good hosts. Most locals will speak perfect English without any visible annoyance, even with pleasure!
The city of Lisbon has a fantastic atmosphere. The options for spending a free day in Lisbon are almost infinite, with its ancient and modern architecture, all kinds of interesting monuments scattered around every corner, exciting touristic activities such as City Bus, Tuk Tuk and Sailing Tours, or even its wide selection of high-end Shopping Centres. A must see for anyone who wants to experience southern European lifestyle at its best.
Lisbon is only 2 hours away from most western European cities and there are now many low cost flight connections to the city's main airport. The tournament venue is located only 5 km from the Lisbon International Airport and nearby almost every accommodation facility.
