Dangers & Nuisances in Lisbon

Lisbon is not really a dangerous city and the worst that is likely to happen to you is sunburn or a hangover. The most common crime in Lisbon is theft from hire cars. Do not leave anything of value in your car (even locked in the boot) or in your hotel room. Use the safe that is on offer to you by your hotel.

Pickpockets and bag snatchers are also a problem and they have got their act together. Beware of people that brush up close to you or jostle you and don't leave bags and camera equipment unattended for even a moment.

Avoid dingy, empty city alleys and back streets or anywhere else for that matter that doesn't feel right at night.
If you are the victim of theft, you must report it to the police and get a report copy, if you want to make an insurance claim. If your Passport is taken or gets lost, you must contact the consulate to get a replacement issued. Violence against tourists is very unusual. Common sense at all times should spare you any grief.
