Connectivity

The global citizen in Lisbon

Greater Lisbon combines great year-round weather (experiencing around 250 days of sunny weather) with superb connectivity not just within Europe but also to the Americas, Africa, China and the Middle East. There are a number of highly-rated international schools in the capital catering for expatriates and foreign residents from Europe and the rest of the world. Another international school is due to open at Park of Nations in 2020.

Lisbon’s Park of Nations – “Parque das Nações” – was planned with the latest urban planning ideals in mind – underground, bus, rail and road networks easily connect residents to the wider world. Besides being just a few minutes from the international airport and Central Lisbon, the district also has Lisbon’s most modern bus and train terminal, the Gare do Oriente. It sees the start of the arterial north-south highway across the picturesque Vasco da Gama bridge to the Algarve and the rest of Europe via Spain.
