Lisbon is the most booked European city in June 2020
According to the latest research by travel analysis company ForwardKeys and the World Travel and Tourism Council, Lisbon was the most booked European destination in the first half of June 2020.
Over the years, Lisbon’s popularity has risen and foreign investors have bought real estate in the city to the extent of Europe’s most popular real estate market today. This huge investment in real estate has also driven a spectacular renovation of the city’s historical center and restored many of its glorious architectural heritage. Travelers from all over the world have discovered the multiple charms of this seven hilly city by the sea. Tourists in the capital can enjoy its historical and cultural heritage and the most exquisite shopping experience in Europe. The city also has excellent restaurants where you can enjoy local cuisine or traditional Fado music nights. Even riding a tram on the narrow cobblestone streets is a cherished experience. Lisbon has a convenient transportation network and is an ideal base for exploring the local countryside, just like the splendid beaches of the world heritage site Sintra, Algarve and Porto.
During this period of Covid-19, any trip will bring a certain degree of risk, and because the situation is constantly changing, you should always consult the latest available information before departing for the trip. Portugal is widely praised for its speed and efficiency in responding to the Covid crisis, and its mortality rate is much lower than most European countries. Travelers arriving in mainland Portugal do not need to be isolated, although their contact information will be retained. In Lisbon, masks must be worn in shops and public transport, and there will be guidelines on social evacuation in restaurants, theaters and museums. Despite Lisbon’s popularity as a destination, overall air ticket sales for international travel to the EU fell by 84.4% in the first half of June compared to the same period last year, which means that the city’s tourists will be fewer than in previous years. For those who are lucky enough to visit the city this year, this will mean the opportunity to appreciate its attractions without crowds. The decrease in the number of visitors has also led to a reduction in the cost of renting accommodation for various apartments and villas in the city, which makes the cost of time spent in the city much lower than in previous years. Therefore, if you are eager to change a scene, but who is not willing, maybe this is the year you should take a vacation in Lisbon.
