Lisbon
Portugal's capital, and largest city, has long been a popular destination for remote workers. Set on several hills situated along the Atlantic coast, it's the laid-back lifestyle, incredible food, colorful buildings, impressive castles, great nightlife, nearby beaches, high level of English and relatively low cost of living that makes Lisbon such a hotspot. It's possible to surf, wander through markets, soak up some history, eat fresh seafood and enjoy an excursion to nearby Cascais and Sintra, all in one weekend. Also, with mild winters and warm summers, this is one destination that can be visited at almost any time of the year.
