Lisboa is singled out for its natural beauty and the "offer of a variety of attractive experiences, such as gastronomy, sports, architecture and entertainment".
The study is the result of a poll of 18 thousand people from the G8 countries (the United States, Russia, Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Italy and Canada) designed to assess variables such as emotional connection (trust, admiration, liking and esteem) on the part of the general public in relation to 100 cities in 59 countries. In the 2012 poll, Lisboa achieved 66.97 points, putting it on a par with cities like Tokyo, Helsinki, Montreal, Prague, Berlin and Toronto.
