Lisbon comes in first place in the ranking of the 40 happiest cities in the world, according to the American company iVisa. Quality of life, number of hours of sunshine, number of hours worked, cost of living and friendliness of residents were the five evaluation criteria in which the Portuguese capital obtained the best result.

The iVisa also highlights the distinction of Lisbon as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, having conquered the fourth place in the 2022 ranking of the U City Guide. The fado, the Jerónimos Monastery, as well as the Tower of Belém and the custard tarts are highlighted by the company as references not to be missed when visiting the city.

“Lisbon is a city of excellence, a vibrant, inviting and warm city. Being recognized as the happiest city in the world is a stimulus and a challenge to continue the work of improving the quality of life of residents and to make Lisbon an increasingly attractive and qualified destination,” said Carlos Moedas, president of the Lisbon City Council and the Lisbon Tourism Association, in a statement.
