So you have decided to pay the Portuguese capital a visit. Here is everything that you’ll need to know before you embark on your adventure to explore luminous Lisbon.
With an airport only 6km away from the centre of Lisbon, access to the capital is simple and easy. When arriving in the city, you will be met by a taxi rank in front of the arrivals exit of the airport. While the charge into the centre should cost around 10€ (plus 1.60€ per piece of luggage that exceeds hand luggage size), taxi drivers near the airport arrivals often charge up to 30€. We advise you to be attentive to fares and be careful of possible scams.
When travelling light, the cheapest, quickest and essentially best way to get to your next destination is via the underground service. Connecting the city through 4 lines, one metro journey will cost you 1.40€ (with an additional 0.50€ for the rechargeable ticket card, reusable in most public transport outlets, i.e. bus, train, etc.). The service is quick, and orientation is simple.
Provided that you are going straight into the city centre, the airport-provided Aerobus is a viable option for you. Running every 20min at the price of 3.50€, the Aerobus will drop you off at the most central or common destinations across Lisbon downtown.
