Lisbon is the capital and largest city of Portugal. It is also the seat of the district of Lisbon and capital of the Lisbon region. Its municipality has a population of 564,477 in 84.8 km2, while the Lisbon Metropolitan Area in total has around 2.8 million inhabitants. Due to its economic output, standard of living, and market size, the Grande Lisboa (Greater Lisbon) subregion is considered the second most important financial and economic center of the Iberian Peninsula.
The Lisbon region is the wealthiest region in Portugal, and it is well above the European Union's GDP per capita average – it produces 45% of the Portuguese GDP. It is also the political center of the country, as seat of government and residence of the Head of State.
Lisbon was under Roman rule from 205 BC, when it was already a 1000-year-old town. Julius Caesar made it a municipium called Felicitas Julia, adding to the name Olissipo. Ruled by a series of Germanic tribes from the 5th century, it was captured by Moors in the 8th century. In 1147, the Crusaders under Afonso Henriques reconquered the city for the Christians and since then it has been a major political, economic and cultural center of Portugal. Unlike most capital cities, Lisbon's status as the capital of Portugal has never been granted or confirmed officially – by statute or in written form. Its position as the capital has formed through constitutional convention, making its position as de facto capital a part of the Constitution of Portugal.
Lisbon hosts two agencies of the European Union, namely, the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) and the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA). The Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP), is also headquartered in Lisbon. The municipal holiday is June 13, St. Anthony's Day.
Lisbon's main airport is 10 km (6 mi) from the conference venue at ISEG - Lisbon School of Economics & Management, Universidade de Lisboa.
Taxis are the easiest way to get into the city center and are available outside the airport. The journey to city center takes about 20 minutes. All of the taxis have digital meters and must run them. The cost of getting from the airport to the (city center) is about 15 euros daytime. Most taxis do not accept credit cards. It is not necessary to tip taxi drivers. You can queue for taxis outside the arrivals exit.
You may alternatively take the Metro (subway). It may be quicker and will certainly be cheaper. The Airport station is on the red line, taking you to Saldanha station in just 15 minutes and to the city center Baixa-Chiado station (a change of line is needed) in about 25 minutes. You can buy the one-way ticket for 1.90 euros or the daily pass for 6 euros, allowing you to use the Metro, buses, trams, funiculars, elevator and trains). Both types of ticket are issued on rechargeable cards so do not throw them away.
