Why Lisbon in October

Lisbon is one of the European capitals that offers the best conditions for companies who wish to host initiatives, meetings and conferences for groups. The year-round mild climate, the wines & cuisine, historic monuments, entertainment, unique luminosity and an airport in the city centre, make it the perfect destination.

Cascais , where the conference will be held is 30 minutes west of Lisbon and is best reached by train from Cais do Sodré station along the scenic coastal route. We will gladly assist you with transport to and from the CasCais upon your arrival in Lisbon.

October sees temperatures in Lisbon begin to decline slightly, however they do remain very warm. At least six days of the month the temperature will be above 26°C. The average temperature during the day still reaches a high of 22°C (that's about 72°F), and at night only dip down to around 14°C (about 57°F). The highest recorded temperature ever for October was 33°C.

With seven hours of average daily sunshine and 11 hours of daylight you can still enjoy some beach time.
