WHEN AND HOW
TO GO TO LISBON

Lisbon is a year round destination, as the climate is always mild and there are no extreme weather conditions. But it can become quite hot in the summer (though miraculously cool in the evenings) and there's plenty of rain during the winter months, so spring is perhaps the best time for a visit.

Most arrive in Lisbon by plane, although there is an overnight train service from the neighboring Spanish capital Madrid (taking 10 hours).

Most of the major European airlines fly to Lisbon (British Airways, KLM, Iberia, Air France, Alitalia, Lufthansa etc.), as well as an increasing number of low-cost airlines (EasyJet, Vueling, and more).

The national Portuguese airline TAP Portugal connects Lisbon to a large number of European cities, as well as to the United States. There are daily flights from New York, flying out of Newark Liberty International Airport, and another flight from Miami. United Airlines also has a daily direct flight from Newark.

The Portuguese airline was considered one of the world's 10 safest airlines according to a study released in March 2007 based on the age, type, and maintenance of the aircraft as well as the safety record.
