Lisbon has been voted one of the best cities in the world to live, being compared to Barcelona, San Francisco and other coastal, technology-driven and creative places. The western European city sits on the Atlantic Coast and urban Lisbonites can head to the surrounding beaches to relax or to surf on the weekends. With an agreeable climate, residents and visitors enjoy a feeling of year-round Spring and Summer and are able to enjoy the city’s many outdoor patios and rooftop bars. The cost of living is also appealing to new residents and visitors with prices less than half of heading to other European capital cities, like London for example. Economising on property prices allows new homeowners to enjoy the city many cultural offerings whether it is the Contemporary Art Museum, visiting the magnificent Sao Domingos Church off of Square or listening to Fado in the old Alfama neighbourhood. The city is also very peaceful, safe and is great to walk around day or night. Lisbon has something to suit everyone’s tastes.
