Welcome to Lisbon

Lisbon is the westernmost European capital. It is set on a series of hills overlooking the estuary of the river Tejo and its channel connection to the ocean. It is becoming increasingly popular, but it still keeps its charm and it is not yet ruined by mass tourism. The largest attraction is the city itself, best enjoyed by walking on the various districts of the city centre, entering in the occasional church, museum, or pastelaria (serving both savoury and sweet snacks and coffee). Also, the combined effect of 2786 sunshine hours (annual average), limestone pavement, light coloured or tiled façades, the reflecting river and the ocean breeze, produces the famed Lisbon Light.

Arriving in Lisbon

The international airport of Lisbon (LIS) – Aeroporto Humberto Delgado – is located inside the city and it has an underground station, bus stops and taxi stop. Therefore, it’s easy to reach the city centre quickly and comfortably, at any time. The full list of airlines flying to Lisbon, including low cost ones, can be found here.

How to reach the city from the airport:

The airport has an underground station. Taxi to the city centre is around 10 Euros and it takes you about 15-20mins to get to the majority of hotels. The best choice to get a taxi at the airport is to take one from in front of the Departures. There is also a bus shuttle, the Aerobus, with a fare of €3.00, from 7:00 – 23:20, that  goes through the central avenues of Lisbon where the main hotels are located. Uber and Cabify are operating in Lisbon as well.

Public Transportation Tickets:

In the underground station, you need to buy a VIVA transporting card (0,50€) on the vending machine and charge it. The VIVA Travel Cards or 7 Colinas can be loaded with the following types of transport tickets:

  • Single travel ticket valid on each operator’s network
  • 24 hour ticket – 6,15€
  • Pre-purchased tickets

  • tram 2,90€
  • urban train and ferry
