Why intern in Lisbon?

Lisbon is Portugal’s economic nerve centre, producing almost half the country’s Gross Domestic Product. Lisbon is widely considered the city with the best climate in all of Europe – the city enjoys more than 300 sunny days a year, making it ideal for sunbathing on the beach even in warmer winter days. On that note of beaches, Cascais and Estoril in Lisbon are famous for being two of the best city-beaches in the world. A city of seafarers and discoverers, Lisbon is the second oldest capital after Athens in Europe. Its long, rich history makes Lisbon indisputably one of the cultural capitals of Europe.

Lisbon is a first-class base from which to explore Portugal. Portugal offers excellent cuisine, a stunning coastline, a rich culture, friendly people and a reasonable cost of living. It is little wonder that this country regularly ranks near the top for quality of life.
