    Taxi Lisbon airport To Cascais

    by Mikebb Written Oct 28, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Arriving Lisbon International Airport on a Saturday afternoon I approached the Tourist Information desk within the airport re transport to Cascais. We agreed taxi would be best and they arranged transport for 54 Euros. The staff took us outside and called an upmarket taxi for a most comfortable 25 minute drive to Cascais.

    The information desk informed us we might get cheaper, however one never knows if the driver takes the long route.

    Our return to the airport a week later was a little cheaper. I asked the hotel desk to call a taxi, 3 minutes later a beautiful Mercedes arrived with driver in suit. a beautiful ride to the airport and I was thinking " this will cost". It was a great result, only 50 Euro including tip.

    Cascais Rail Transport

    Train At Station

    We used the rail transport 4 or 5 times and found it to be fast, clean and cheap. We took a day trip to Lisbon, only 35 minutes and 1.70 Euro one way senior fare. I think a return ticket is $2.90 Euro.

    Another time we caught the train to Estoril to visit the Casino, only 2 stops away.

    If you want a long day you can catch the train to Lisbon, have a half day looking around and then take the train to Sintra, only approx 20 minutes from Lisbon.

    Enjoy the beautiful village on a carriage drawn by horses.
    I think on the old villages and towns it is vulgar to see this kind of transportation.
    It is in fact a really enjoyable way to admire the town.

    Well, Cascais is not a big town, so enjoy the beautiful streets, specially the ones that are closed to traffic. It is there where you can find the commercial heart of the town.
    Walking by side the coast it is a really enjoyable experience, to feel the sun in your face and to look at the sea admiring the beautiful yachts and boats sailing.

    If you enjoy cycling, you should take advantage of the recent cycling lane that runs between Cascais and Guincho beach. This 10 km trip (each way) will definitely provide you the most beautiful views over the coast and the sea. Be careful with sunburns, as sun may be strong during the day (even during cloudy days).

    The Train to Cascais

    by TinKan Updated Dec 17, 2002

    The train station

    Cascais sits at the end of the coastal train route that runs from Lisbon to Cascais.

    There is a train that you can take from Lisbon to Cascais about every 30 minutes or so and it is inexpensive to ride.

    Be careful riding the train at night, sit in a well-lit area of the train with other people.

    On the weekend the train is crowed with all the folks from Lisbon coming to enjoy the beach of Cascais.

    New bus around town

    by TinKan Updated Dec 17, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Not the bus

    There is a new bus system in Cascais that is not to bad.... it is called 7/7 for seven stops every seven miniutes.

    The cost is .70 EURO for a one way trip but I would buy the multi-day pass.

    You can walk just about everywhere in Cascais but it is nice to see the places where the locals live as well and it has A/C.
    The bus is also a good way to go when it is raining.

    At Cascais you can hire a SEGWAY to explore the town in a different way.
    At the Alameda dos Combatentes da Grande Guerra street close to the seaside there's a rental booth.
