Lisbon

Lisbon, Portugal

Perched on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, Lisbon is a city defined by the ocean, white-bleached limestone buildings, intimate alleyways and a contemporary culture. At night, late-night drinks and parties happen at Bairro Alto, just up the hill from Chiado (Old Town). On the weekend, you can see people everywhere on the busy streets going from bar to bar.

Lisbon is generally a safe city with a low crime rate, though you’ll want to mind your wallet on public transportation and in crowded areas. Women digital nomads should feel comfortable walking around alone, but should still take the usual precaution. Be wary around metro stations such as Anjos, Martim Moniz and Intendente, where there have been muggings, and avoid the dark alleys of Alfama and Graça.

Lisbon is one of the best European cities for digital nomads. This vibrant, sunny city is a cheap place for digital nomads compared to the rest of Western Europe and even some Southern countries. Coworking spaces are plenty, cafes have excellent wifi, and Lisbon's hostels have been voted one of the best in the world.

The best time to visit Lisbon is either from March to May or September to October, because the weather is still warm, but not scorching. The summer can be very hot in Lisbon, with high humidity and temperatures up to 40 degrees celsius not being uncommon. June to August are regarded as the peak season and August is the holiday season for Lisbon's residents so expect beaches to be packed.
