Lisbon is the largest city in Portugal with nearly three million people living in the metropolitan area of the city. It is also continental Europe's most western capital city and the only one on the Atlantic coast.
Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in Europe with archeological evidence suggesting settlement in the area dates back to as early as 1200 BC.
Lisbon enjoys a Mediterranean climate with mild, rainy winters and warm to hot, dry summers. The weather in May for the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest is likely to be sunny!
