Portugal-- Lisbon (neighborhood and safety question)

Jump to last reply

Hello all! My husband and I are planning a trip this May/June and are strongly considering Portugal. We are really interested in Porto, Lisbon and the Algarve with some side trips to Sintra and the Duoro area. However, in doing our planning we came across several posts about an increase in muggings and violent crime, specifically in Lisbon. We have travelled quite a bit so we know the general street smarts of avoiding dodgy alleys/displaying valuables/watching belongings on public transport, but is Lisbon any more "dangerous" than any other European city? We just want to feel comfortable taking the occasional photo at major landmarks and walking home from dinner. I'm sorry if this has been asked before recently, but if so, I couldn't find it. Also, we were reading conflicting information as to the best (convenient and safe) areas to stay in Lisbon, so if anyone has some recommendations we would welcome them. Thanks so much for your time!
