Who we are

Turismo de Lisboa - Visitors & Convention Bureau

"Turismo de Lisboa " is a non-profit organization, established through an alliance of public and private bodies, which operate in the tourist sector. The main objective of this association is to combine efforts, in order to improve and further the promotion of Lisboa as a tourist destination, and thus to improve the quality and competitiveness of the city.

The Association's activities also include the creation of various tourist projects, as a result of private initiatives or in partnership with other entities. "Turismo de Lisboa” is divided into two sections: the Visitors Bureau and the Convention Bureau.

The "Convention Bureau" promotes Lisboa as a prime location for holding congresses, meetings, trade fairs, exhibitions, and business travel.

The Bureau offers impartial advice and assistance to event organizers. Services include bid preparation, coordination of site inspections, innovative ideas for social programs and identification of suitable venues for events.

It is just as easy to reach the centre of the city. National and international trains arrive every day at Santa Apolónia station, which is very close to all the traditional neighbourhoods and Terreiro do Paço. But if you would like to add a unique architectural experience to your arrival, get off at Gare do Oriente, whose Calatrava-designed lines impress even those who see it every day.


Those arriving by sea have one of the best views of Lisbon – from the river – and can moor in 3 different places, all near the centre. If you come by cruise ship, you can dock at Alcântara, Rocha Conde de Óbidos or Santa Apolónia. If you arrive by yacht, there are several marinas as you sail up the river.


The best ways to enter Lisbon are via the A1 and A2, which both have national and international connections along their course. The landscape is beautiful and mobility around the region compensates the long hours of driving. After all, there is more to Lisbon than just city.
