Welcome to Lisbon
The westernmost European capital is set on a series of hills overlooking the estuary of the river Tejo and its channel connection to the ocean. The combined effect of 2786 sunshine hours (annual average), limestone pavement, light colored or tiled façades, the reflecting river and the ocean breeze, produces the famed Lisbon Light.
Arriving in Lisbon
The international airport of Lisbon (LIS) is well connected with most major european cities. The full list of airlines flying to Lisbon, including low cost ones, is found here.
How to reach the city from the airport
The airport is actually located inside the city and it has a subway stop.
Taxi to the city center is around 10 Euros.
Public Transportation Tickets
On the vending machine (in any subway station) you need to buy a VIVA transportation card (0.5 Euro) and charge it in zapping mode. This allows you to use the transportation card in subway, bus, tram, urban train (“RER/S-bahn type”) and ferry. Be aware that If you charge it in single trip mode for a subway trip, the card will not be valid in trains, which are the best way to reach the venue.
The cost of a subway, bus or tram journey in zapping mode is 1.25 E
