Hotels choices include the Jorge V Lisbon, considered one of Lisbon landmarks, with a tradition of service and a central downtown setting. And, the stylish Hotel Azores Lisboa, a modern four-star hotel in the city’s business and shopping district. The downtown Tivoli Jardim is also included, set near major sites and shopping. The Hotel Mundial is right in the heart of the city’s center. The Mundial, recently restored, was famed as a center of espionage during World War II. The modern Tivoli Oriente is a four-star hotel in the newest part of the city, the riverfront Nation’s Park.
Lisbon stands on the north bank of the Tejo River, where the river meets the Atlantic. It is Portugal’s largest city and its capital, with the added distinction of being the warmest and most western capital in Europe. Its climate is strongly influenced by the Gulf Stream. Built on seven hills, some of Lisbon’s streets are too steep for cars, but visitors can and should take in panoramic views of the city by traveling to the top via elevators or funicular.
SATA Airlines has connected North America with the Azores and mainland Portugal for more than 25 years. Today it offers direct flights on wide-body A310 aircraft to São Miguel, the main island in the Azores archipelago. Connecting flights from São Miguel to Lisbon and/or the island of Madeira are available. The carrier is part of the SATA Group.
