One of the most beautiful and underrated cities in Europe, Lisbon is a joy to explore, especially if you hire a car at Lisbon Airport. The airport is just 20 minutes from the city centre and accessible to other areas of Portugal via the E1. With so much to do, it's definitely worth hiring a car at Lisbon Airport.

“The pick-up was easy, it took 5 minutes from arriving at the desk to driving out the car, and the return took even less time.”
Once you've collected your hire car, the whole of Lisbon is open to you. You can explore the stunning coastline and swim in crystal clear water or visit some of the beautiful historical attractions. You'll also be able to enjoy fresh and delicious seafood at any of the city's restaurants and head down the winding alleys to locate hidden shops and cafes.
You'll be amazed by the city as soon as you arrive at Lisbon Airport and there is no shortage of things to do close by. Stop off to get some photos of the iconic Vasco da Gama Bridge before driving across it over the ocean. You can then head to Guincho beach to enjoy one of the most beautiful coastlines in Portugal.
As well as great coastal towns, Lisbon has some great inland areas to visit, made easier to reach by hiring a car. Head to Evora via the A12 and A6 to experience a vibrant city and take in its amazing and varied history. Surrounded by olive groves, traditional villages and stunning landscape, the drive alone makes the trip worth it.
One of the best parts about your trip to Lisbon is likely to be the food and drink. There are a number of legendary cafes and restaurants for you to visit, many of which can be found right on the waterfront, offering stunning views while you enjoy your meal. You'll find a great mix of traditional Portuguese cuisine and many of your favourite international dishes, so it's a great idea to see what's on offer before settling for an eaterie.
While it goes unsaid that you can head to a stunning beach to soak up the sun and have a swim, there is a lot more to do in Lisbon. You can head to Praça do Comércio, the city's main square to explore the arcades and enjoy one of the local cafes. Alternatively, visit Lisbon Oceanarium to see some of the amazing marine life that is housed there.
Lisbon is full of fantastic historical sights that can't be missed. One of the most impressive is Igreja & Museu São Roque, which looks like a simple church from the outside. However, the interior is full of art, extraordinary details and gold that will leave you feeling amazed.
