Lisbon is the capital of Portugal, as well as its most important city. Its privileged position at the mouth of the Tagus River made it one of the most influential cities in the control of the Atlantic Ocean.
We’ll try to answer basic questions when planning a trip:
Lisbon has a population of 600,000, and its metropolitan area has around 2.6 million people.
EU Residents can enter Lisbon with either an ID card, or passport, as long as they are valid.
The official currency in Lisbon is the Euro.
The official time zone in Portugal is Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), which means that it’s the same as in London.
Electric plugs in Lisbon have two round pins and its voltage is 220V.
Most shops in Lisbon open from Monday to Friday, from 9.30am to 1pm and 3pm to 7pm. From 7pm on you can find shopping centres and souvenir shops open.
On Saturdays most of the shops only open in the morning.
