The lively Portuguese capital of Lisbon was once one of the world's most powerful and prosperous cities. After successfully hosting the 1998 World Expo, Lisbon has started to return to its former glory. Visitors are finding it impossible to resist the city's vibrant nightlife, fascinating landmarks, and friendly locals.
Lisbon's Portela Airport, Portugal's largest, receives a variety of flights from destinations around the world each day. The airport is also one of the main hubs for cheap Lisbon car hire. Touring Lisbon by cheap car hire is particularly recommended for visitors who want to explore the city and surrounding countryside at their own leisure.
Historic Castelo de São Jorge, overlooking Lisbon's oldest district of Alfama, is just as breathtaking as the city skyline views it provides, including a clear look at Lisbon's renowned Romanesque cathedral. Baixa, another historic Lisbon district, managed to successfully rebuild itself after a 1755 earthquake.
The elaborately tiled buildings along the Tejo waterfront, the Cristo Rei statue, the unforgettable view from the Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara, and the Bairro Alto's exuberant nightlife are just a few more Lisbon sites easily accessible by Lisbon hire car.
Two monuments dedicated to Portugal's proud maritime past overlook the city of Belém, not far west of Lisbon by hire car. Belém is also home of the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos monastery, which remained undamaged by the 1755 earthquake. Royalty once relaxed among the forests and rolling hills of Sintra, now a World Heritage site just 45 minutes away from Lisbon by rental car.
