We stayed overnight before our return flight at Tivoli Oriente Hotel. It was a clean, modern hotel and the drive to the airport was so easy - just straight up the road for five minutes.

Easy and convenient airport. Not very big. Security was fast and efficient so no need for long queues and wait long time. Luggage waiting time was really reasonable, no more than 5 min No much food choices but enough to keep you going There are shops but no that many so if you want to do a last minute purchases in the airport you may struggle to find what you want. Plenty of rental car options what translate in competitive prices.

It was hard to spot the transfer team. You should be aware that this Rent-a-Car is not in the Airport, they offer a pickup service at the Airport and transfer you to their offices which is very close to the Airport. Once you are aware of this I believe it can actually be faster than renting at the airport.

Lisbon itself is wonderful, many things to see and do. Travelling north of Lisbon to Silver Coast (Obidos) is also worth considering. Beautiful views, good food and friendly people. Golfers can enjoy interesting courses at very good prices. Weather Portugal is generally nice although the Atlantic wind can have a bite to it sometimes. Many Portuguese speak English or French, so communication is easy without being able to speak Portuguese.

Wow. So much to see and do! Lisbon is a wonderful city - full of culture and history but the real adventure is outside the city. Hiring a car allows you to travel around Portugal at your leisure and well worth it. Highlights are visiting Óbidos, Ericeira, Sintra, Tomar, Porto, Guimarães, Geres, Monsanto, Coimbra, Marvão, the Alentejo and the Algarve. You will miss seeing all of these amazing places if you dont hire a car! PLUS, don't miss visiting all the many small villages along the way. The people are warm and very proud of their country. Having a conversation with anyone, anywhere will show you how special Portugal is!

Best decision we made was purchasing the "Via Verde". Allows you to travel on the great highways easily and without having to deal with having money to pay at tolls.
