Public transport from the airport

by Traveling_Duck

We have rented an apartment in Largo dos Loios, and I would like to know if there is any public transportation that can take us from the airport relatively close to this place. If you know of such a bus, could you also please indicate the name of the bus stop? Thanks, all!

I am assuming this is the Largo do Loios, 1100 Lisbon which is very close to the Castelo do S. Jorge (St George's Castle)

You will need two buses.

The number 91 Aerobus will take you from the airport to the Praca do Comercio in the centre of Lisbon.

From there you have to walk a short distance to the Igreja Madelena, from where the number 37 bus goes up the hill to the Castle. The nearest stop for you would seem to be at Costa do Castelo. The bus stops are clearly marked on google maps of the area.

Check the maps and timetables at www.carris.pt

The bus ticket you get when boarding the 91 is also valid for any other bus trip that day, so there is no need to buy a second ticket.

I hope that helps.

Hi Cub and Explore. I will be in Lisbon end of March. How much would an honest cab driver charge from the airport to downtown? I will be arriving around 8pm on a Friday evening. How many minutes Should the ride take? I am wary of the driver taking the longer, more expensive "scenic route"! Thanks alot.

Travel Tips for Lisbon

Welcome

by Fiel

The historical quarters of Lisboa are generally in the city centre. Some still retain the old structures of Muslim and medieval origin, with courtyards where people usually get together. The typical features of these quarters are old houses, narrow streets, wrought-iron balconies, tiled façades and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The best and most pleasant way to visit these quarters is by "eléctrico" (tram). And be sure not to miss a stroll by the River Tagus and lunch at the Santo Amaro docks.

Alfama, Castelo and Mouraria

The Alfama is one of the oldest quarters in Lisboa. Since it largely survived the earthquake of 1755, the area still retains much of its original layout.
Adjacent to the Alfama are the likewise old quarters of Castelo and Mouraria, on the western and northern slopes of the hill that is crowned by St. George's Castle. Every year in June, the streets of all three quarters come alive with the feasts in honour of the popular saints. The Graça quarter and the churches of São Vicente de Fora and Santa Engrácia are within walking distance of this area.

Bairro Alto, Chiado and Bica

Laid out in the 16th century, the Bairro Alto (literally "high quarter") is one of the most picturesque quarters in the city. Its architecture, traditional shops, restaurants, bars and design and fashion stores give it a unique flair. It is also a popular meeting place for all nightlife lovers.

The Chiado is an elegant shopping district. At the end of the 19th century, it became a fashionable meeting place for intellectuals such as Fernando Pessoa, Almada Negreiros and Eça de Queiroz. Their most famous haunt was the café "A Brasileira", which is still today favoured by the city's art students. The Bica quarter lies adjacent to the Bairro Alto and Chiado. In addition to its typical streets and houses, it is particularly renowned for its funicular lift, the Ascensor da Bica, built in 1892. Baixa/Rua Augusta

One of Lisboa's busiest quarters. Many commuters who cross the Tagus pass through here every day on their way to work. It is also one of the city's biggest traditional shopping districts. Almost completely destroyed by the earthquake of 1755, the quarter was rebuilt by Marquês de Pombal, thus earning the name of "Baixa Pombalina". The original uniform, rectilinear architecture is still evident today. The names of the streets parallel to Rua Augusta still allude to the traders and craftsmen based in the area since the Age of the Discoveries

Belém

Belém is linked to Portugal's Golden Age of Discoveries as the site where the famous navigators set sail to discover the world. Today it is a spacious green suburb with many gardens, parks and monuments that are well worth a visit. Amongst Belém's attractions are the Jerónimos Monastery, the Monument to the Discoveries, the Torre de Belém, the Belém Cultural Centre and Rua Vieira Portuense.

ARCO DE TRIUNFO

by LoriPori

Comercio Square which opens onto the River, is dominated by the ARCO DE TRIUNFO, and leads to Rua Augusta, one of Lisbon's main pedestrian streets. Upon entering the street, you will see Santa Justa Elevator on your left.
In Barocque style, the Arch has statues of Vasco da Gama. the famous Portuguese explorer and Marques de Pombal. who rebuilt Lisbon after the devastating 1755 earthquake. The surface of the Arch facing the interior, features a large clock.
On either side of the Arch, the yellow buildings are mostly government offices.
It is such an impressive Monument and shows how Lisbon triumphantly rose up from the ruins of the earthquake.

INTERIOR OF SANTA MARIA CHURCH

by LoriPori

At the end of the side aisles and on both sides of the choir, stand the Manueline altars of SANTA MARIA CHURCH dating from the 16th and 17th centuries. They are decorated with carved work in golden and green colours.
The Chancel was ordered by Queen Catherine of Habsburg as the final resting place for the Royal Family. The Royal tombs rest on marble elephants and are set between Ionic pillars, topped by Corinthean pillars. The tombs contain the remains of King Manuel I and his wife Maria of Aragon and of King Joao III and his wife Queen Catherine of Habsburg.
Close to the Western Portal are the tombs of Vasco da Gama (see separate tip), Portuguese explorer and of the great poet Luis de Camoes.

Azulejos

by pure1942

Portugal is famous for these glazed tiles and you will find plenty of fine examples of colourful azulejos all over Lisbon. The tradition came to Lisbon through the Moors and the Portuguese took up the methods and techniques involved in their fabrication with enthusiasm. The tiles can be seen gracing the walls of both the interior and exterior of many buildings and come in a huge variety of styles and colours although the blue and white Baroque era tiles are the most famous. If you really want to feast your eyes on a true azulejo masterpiece, head for the Capela de Sao Filipe in Setubal.

5 km from Cascais is a beach popular for windsurfers/surfers. Windsurf gear: wave boards and sails from 3.5 to 5.3 range. Apr. - Sept is best time for wind. Equipment rental/shop on beach. There are also caverns such as the famous Boca do Inferno which is well worth a visit.
