Epistran International Conference

Useful Information

What you need to know when in Lisbon

Upon arrival:

At the airport you can catch the AeroBus line 1 (between 7 am and 11 pm): you should stop at CAMPO PEQUENO.

UNDERGROUND (Metro), from the airport, choose the red line and leave at: SALDANHA, the closest Metro (Underground) station is CAMPO PEQUENO but you have to change to yellow line, or use the blue line and leave at PRAÇA DE ESPANHA. A Metro ticket costs 1,65 euros, but you may consider buying a one-day ticket (€ 6,60) if you arrive early and want to travel more along the day. You can also buy the top up card [NAVEGANTE card] and top it up with the amount you want, this can also be used at buses, trams and funiculars in all Lisbon.

The TAXI fare from the airport to Av de Berna should cost around 20 euros. Sometimes, it is quicker to go to departures (right next to arrivals) to get a taxi. If you want to avoid (possible) long queues: just turn right as you come out into the main arrivals hall, keep going, go up the escalator, turn slightly left and go outside, you are outside departures, and there is no queue there to get a taxi. Once in the city, if you are using the public bus to travel around Lisbon, buy a pass (NAVEGANTE card) and top it up at any underground (METRO) station or selected points, as tickets purchased inside the bus are more expensive.
