Lisbon hotels are expected to enjoy good occupancy rate and visitors are advised to book in advance.

    The Lisbon Marathon, which is in its 25th edition, also offers the Half Marathon to complement the main event and allow those who are still keen to participate but do not have the stamina to complete the full 42km. There is also the Mini Marathon, a non-competitive 6km race that offers more of a fun run for the younger participants.
