Lisbon travel information

yellow tram in Lisbon

Lisbon is the capital and the largest city of Portugal, and one of Europe's gems. It feels more like a village than a city with narrow, tree-lined streets, plazas where locals gather to chat and relax, music echoing from crowded nightlife venues and bars in Bairro's Alto, white domed cathedrals and the occasional stunning monastery. Dine at one of the top seafood restaurants overlooking the water, pick up some local produce at the markets, grab a Portuguese tart, visit the São Jorge Castle for top views and cool off at one of the stunning beaches not far from the city centre. It's a travel destination that has something for everyone.

Getting into Lisbon from Lisbon Airport

There are various convenient transport options available at Lisbon Airport, making travelling into the city centre easy. Choose from metro, bus, shuttle, train, taxi or car hire. Lisbon Airport has a Metro (subway) station with a direct line to the city centre. The 'Aeroporto – Saldanha' line takes you to downtown Lisbon in about 20 minutes making it a quick and inexpensive way to travel. Several bus lines stop at the airport arrivals terminal, taking you to different parts of the city. The aerobus has frequent departures from the airport, providing a link between the main city points available at both terminals. 10 minutes away by Metro, you can get to Gare do Oriente, the main train station in Lisbon, where you can take trains to all parts of the country. You may like to rent car to take you where you need to go. Taxis and ride share options are also available at the airport, or you can organise a hotel transfer.

Getting around Lisbon

Getting around Lisbon is easy, with a range of transport options to suit your needs. Choose from metro, tram, funiculars, bus, train, ferry, taxi, walking, bike or join a tour. The metro is the quickest and most efficient way to travel around the city, with four lines and it's easy to navigate to get to the major sights. Yellow buses are a good option to travel to areas that are not accessible by metro or tram, however they are mainly used by the locals. Trams are a fun travel experience and tram 28E weaves an atmospheric path through the historic neighbourhoods of Mouraria, Alfama and Graça. Three funiculars operate in Lisbon, helping you climb up the hills. When travelling on public transport, its best to buy a Viva Viagem green card, to use as a ticket on each mode of public transport. Trains are the best option to visit attractions around Lisbon, namely Sintra and Cascais and run at regular intervals. Bikes are available and can be booked through the bike sharing app, and walking around the historic neighbourhoods and narrow streets is a nice way to see the city. Five boat routes connect the two sides of the Tagus River, and taking a ferry is the fastest and easiest way to get to the south bank. Taxis are not too expensive, or you can request an Uber through the app.
