Weather at the moment
Weather all year round
Officially, the climate is temperate oceanic in southern Portugal. So, soft and humid.... and subject to the vagaries of the weather. Minimum temperatures range from 7.5 to 13°C and maximums from 17 to 31°C. Overall, winters are never too cold (average temperatures between 5 and 12°C) and summers are moderately hot (average temperatures between 21 and 25°C).
Portugal is in the euro zone.
Life is still a little cheaper in Portugal than in France. However, do not get excited too quickly, the country is no longer the cheap little paradise for the small budgets it used to be and the European capital is charging a high price. You will also have to adjust your budget according to the tourist season. Indeed, prices increase by an average of 5% in July, 15% in August and 10% in September, which is even more obvious in terms of accommodation. It will be necessary to find a place to stay not far from the centre of Lisbon in advance. Your Smart little guide will nevertheless provide you with the right addresses in the different districts.
For EU nationals, an identity card or passport is sufficient (even if it has expired less than five years ago). For unaccompanied minors, an exit permit is required (forms in town halls or police stations). Canadians are not required to obtain a visa if their stay is less than three months. For Swiss citizens, it is necessary to present a valid identity card or passport. For students, an international student card (ISIC card) can provide you with many discounts (transport, accommodation, leisure, culture) worldwide, including in Portugal
No particular risk in Lisbon. Before leaving, bring your Carte Vitale. To apply for the European Provisional Health Card (which replaces form E111), contact your social security fund or go to a social security machine. The paper that will be given to you immediately serves as a card until you receive the official card, valid for one year. If you are ill, your medical expenses at the hospital will be covered, as well as in the event of an accident. Tap water is drinkable in Lisbon
