Welcome to LISBON!
TA DMC is pleased to Welcome to Lisbon all Participants of the 53rd EASD Annual Meeting.

A city where you feel safe wandering around day or night, where the cuisine is dedicated to creating over a thousand ways to cook the beloved bacalhau (salted cod), and where you’ll find hotels and restaurants to suit every taste, budget and requirement. Discover Lisbon, a city full of authenticity where old customs and ancient history intermix with cultural entertainment and hi-tech innovation. Lisbon is ageless, but it loves company. After all, Lisbon is famous for its hospitality and the family-like way it welcomes visitors.
