Lisbon Wins “Europe’s Leading City Break Destination” at the World Travel Awards — Again

LisbonLisbon has just won, for the second consecutive year, the title of “Europe’s Leading City Break Destination” at the World Travel Awards, the so-called “Tourism Oscars.”
The votes come from travel industry executives and agencies who apparently feel that currently Lisbon is an unbeatable destination in Europe.
The Portuguese capital certainly does have its strong points, from an international airport in the very center of the city to where all the major airlines and low-cost carriers fly every day, to travel-friendly weather throughout much of the year.
Then there’s the quality of the accommodation, with 3 and 4-star hotels being of a high standard, and the possibility to stay at a 5-star for less than 100 euros.
Budget travelers will also find what are classified as the world’s best hostels year after year, as well as the choice of beautifully-furnished apartments in the center of the city.
Lisbon’s attractions are also outstanding, with World Heritage monuments from the Age of Discovery and their singular architectural style, to surprising museum collections, to the breathtaking views from the top of hills and major landmarks.
For young travelers another plus is the nightlife, with cheap drinks and all-night socializing on the streets which are also generally much safer than other European capitals.
Everything is also still much more affordable than in the rest of Western Europe, and in not too many other cities will you find such a variety of activities, from beautiful beaches to golf.
