Over 3,000 years old, the Portuguese capital Lisbon (pt: Lisboa) is a sunny, safe, culturally fascinating, and still relatively inexpensive European city – well worth a visit regardless of whether or not you're studying Portuguese.

Due to the winning combination of safety and a relatively low cost of living, Lisbon is increasingly popular as a destination for studying (especially under the Erasmus exchange program), tourism, and expat living (especially among retirees). Nevertheless, it's still a place where you can experience real Portuguese culture and hear the Portuguese language practically everywhere (save, perhaps, for some particularly student- and tourist-infested nightlife spots in Bairo Alto).
