    Parking and Tolls in Lisbon

    Lisbon is limited with the availability of on-street parking, and it is usually busy during and after work hours. To solve this problem, the government has recently built multi-story car parks underground for a fare starting from around €7 per day. This is a safe and convenient option for travellers as they can park in the city centre and explore the intertwining streets by foot. More information on parking prices can be found here.
