The site Expats, whose ranking ranks the best and worst European cities for careers, Social life and safety has placed Lisbon fourth.

Remote working is on the rise around the globe — and dozens of countries have developed targeted ‘digital nomad’ visas.
Portugal is seen as a strong country that provides the necessary services for teleworking such as high-speed internet, co-woking spaces and startup communities.
InterNations – a global community for people who live and work abroad — has carried out its annual Expat Insider survey.
By quizzing 11,970 expats, the organisation has generated a ranking of 50 cities across the world.
Valencia was the best city for expats in 2022 but Lisbon was one of the highest rated for the weather. Madrid also did better than Lisbon.
Expats also said they like the culture and nightlife options available in the Portuguese capital.
The city ranked highly for safety, too, with 94 per cent of expats saying they felt safe compared to 81 per cent globally.
However, Lisbon drops down the rankings when it comes to working opportunities with 27 per cent saying they do not feel they are paid fairly.
Expats described public transport as affordable and 92 per cent said they enjoy the opportunities for playing sport.
Nine out of ten expats said they feel safe in the city.
Valencia ranked third in the ease of settling in index and three quarters of expats said they feel at home and happy with their social life.
Porto Business School has risen seven places in the Financial Times ranking for the Best European Business Schools, reaching 59th position
The business school has been on the list for 11 consecutive years out of the 94 Financial Times Business Schools.
The result was down to results achieved in the Executive Education categories where it occupied 28th and 34th place in teaching executives for its Custom and Open courses, respectively, and its Executive MBA where it came in 59th position.
