I decided to put together this (Almost) complete guide to Lisbon Portugal based on my travels, 搬到乡, dealing with locals and learning about what it means to be an expat in Portugal. As some of our readers know that Blanca and I have spent 10-years traveling the world. Living in cities for 3-6 months at a time. We have been lucky enough to run two wonderful startups which have allowed us to see over 45 国家. 最后，, after all those treks we decided to settle down in Lisboa (Lisbon) Portugal.

You can request an extension of the tourist visa two times in a row. 所以, there is a possibility of a 270-day stay. In order to do this, 你必须调用 海基会 and make an appointment. They usually ask for a fee. 他们会要求你把地址, 一些财务信息, 保险和护照证明.

里斯本是一个非常小的城市，一个梦幻般的地铁, 培养, taxi and bus system. Here are the links you will need to learn how to traverse the city.
Before you move to Portugal it is our suggestion that you first spend a few weeks or months seeing the country. We suggest you 租短期公寓 in a traditional neighborhood such as Santos or Estrela and then test out other neighborhoods to get a feel for where you want to live. 不要做一个长期的承诺，不知道你喜欢什么. 除此以外, 你可能最终流落在Bairro Alto区一个繁忙的街道，在那里你将不能够在因为所有的partiers的晚上睡觉.

I hope these tips and articles have helped you integrate easier into Portuguese society. I have come to love Portugal. I think Lisbon is a great place to call home. My new home country has amazing perks like 2-hour travel to Paris, 马德里, 巴塞罗那, and London. I can be on a gorgeous beach in 30 minutes (by train). Prices in Portugal are amazing (but rising fast). People here are wonderful. English is spoken by many of the locals AND there is a budding expat community, so while you should learn Portuguese – it won’t be impossible for you to live here without it.
葡萄牙是一个生活的好地方. I hope you enjoy it…and if you have questions for me or if you think there is something missing from this Guide to Lisbon Portugal – let me know in the comments section below.
