Tourism Information

The official currency of Portugal is the Euro (€). Major credit cards are accepted in most hotels, shops and restaurants. Traveller’s cheques and currency can be changed at hotels or at a bank – these are open Monday to Friday from 8:30 to 15:00. Automatic changing and cash dispensing machines linked to international networks are also widely available.


Tax / Tipping
Tipping is optional (and if given it is typically no more than 5%).


Lisbon/Caparica has a Mediterranean climate that is strongly influenced by the Gulf Stream, giving it one of the mildest climates in Europe. Summer lasts until the end of September and the weather during this period is therefore pleasantly warm. Average temperatures: 17 – 26°C (62 – 79°F). Light clothing is suitable with somewhat warmer clothing for the evening.



In  Europe, a type 2 pin sockets with 220 volts AC at 50 cycles are used. Three phase 380 volt current is normally available in meeting and exhibition rooms.

The national language of Portugal is Portuguese, although English and Spanish are widely spoken. The official language of the Congress is English. No simultaneous translation will be provided.

Breakfast is normally served between 7:30 and 10:00, lunch from 12:30 to 15:00, and dinner from 19:30 to 22:00. Due to the city’s proximity to the sea, the local gastronomy includes delicious fish and shellfish dishes.

Shops typically are open from 09:00 to 13:00 and from 15:00 to 19:00 (working days). On Saturdays, most of the shops close at 13:00.
