Our Lisbon Airport desk is located in the rental cars area of the arrivals hall. Lisbon airport lies within the city boundaries so once you have collected your vehicle your hotel or business destination is just a few minutes away. The Lisbon North branch is on Avenida Severiano Falcão and can be reached by taxi from the airport or the city centre. Our Lisbon Centre office is on Rua Andrade Corvo, close to the Picoas station on the Yellow Metro Line. This station can also be reached by local bus from Lisbon's main train stations.

Although many streets are narrow, cobbled and intersected by tramlines, driving in Lisbon is fairly straightforward with destinations clearly marked. Like all capital cities, Lisbon becomes very congested during morning and evening rush hours and the peak holiday months of July to September. Six well signposted major roads make getting out into the countryside or crossing the River Tagus quick and easy.

Underground car parking is widely available across the city as is metered street parking zones. Be careful not to park in a residential permit area.

As the historic attractions of Lisbon as well as its cultural hubs are spread across several areas rather than clustered together, having a car hire in Lisbon makes exploring easier. Start with a drive along the newly rejuvenated waterfront taking in the old Roman harbour and the naval college before driving past Praça do Comércio, the city's main square. The old city spreads out from this square with steep cobbled streets winding up past the cathedral to the Castelo de São Jorge. Panoramic views from the castle's courtyard show just how spread out and hilly Lisbon is. The castle also has ongoing archaeological excavations as well as a restaurant and cafe. After lunch head back along the river to Belém, an area packed with monuments. Take the lift to the top of the Monument to the Discoveries and climb the stairs of the Torre de Belém before crossing the road to visit the beautiful Jerónimos Monastery.

While Lisbon has its own uniqueness it also likes to borrow from other countries. The Ponte 25 Abril which crosses the River Tagus is instantly familiar as it was designed by the architect of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge. On the opposite bank looms the imposing Cristo Rei. Modelled on Rio de Janeiro's Christ the Redeemer, this monument rewards a trip to the top with amazing city, countryside and ocean views. One thing you must do in Lisbon is sample the Portuguese national pastry, the Pastel de Nata or custard tart. These are best eaten in their birthplace, the Antiga Confeitaria de Belém. Here you can see them in production while enjoying your coffee and cake in beautiful blue-tiled surroundings.
