  • Metro

    Lisbon Transportation

    Just wanted to advise other VT travellers to Lisbon that the way out of the Baixa-Chiado metro station involves 4 very long sets of escalators and a flight of stairs. Good idea to take the lift even if you have no luggage. Plus, just wanted to mention, it appeared, that some escalators, around Lisbon, stop working if nobody use them for a length...

  • Tram Electrico

    Lisbon Transportation

    When I visited in 2009 the whizzy new electronic tram 15 to Belem started from Cais do Sodre (at least, I think it did) so that's where we started from. Unfortunately, we chose a day when a cruise ship was in port and it seemed the whole world wanted to get on the tram...ok, not the whole word but there were at least 60 people in the queue. Given...

    Sintra Transportation

    Standing atop a steep hill, Pena palace may represent one of two things: a very hard walk in a fabulous landscape, with signposted indications and attractions on the way, or the need of motorized transport. Getting there by car it's easy (good signals) but parking is not so easy. A good solution is the public bus, using line 434, that starts in...

For most long-haul trains (e.g., to Porto and Faro), you will use either Oriente on the east side of town, or Santa Apolónia station along the Tagus River. The station you use...

    Lisbon has 5 ferry boat terminals (estacoes fluviais) which are served by ferries of the Transtejo company. These ferries cross the river to the southern side. The river Tejo is about 2 km wide near the city centre so the ferry crossing takes about 15 minutes. I once took a ferry from Cais Sodre to Cacilhas from where I walked along the river...

    Lisbon Transportation

    In September 2009, my sister and I just used the taxi to go from the airport to our centrally located hotel. It only cost us about 18 Euros. I noticed that taxis around the city are affordable, being about 5-10 Euros for travels within the city. In the airport, it has also been suggested that taking the escalator up to the Departures will show...

    When you intend to rent a car in Lisbon airport, be prepared, that more and more renting companies are now moving out of the airport and have their station "somewhere". It might be only a little hint in your papers, that you will be expected by a representative next to the "Vodafone" both, to guide you to the shuttle bus. You might know that from...

    Lisbon Transportation

    One of the means of transport in this hilly city are the "Elevators," which have been bringing passengers up and down hills with ease since 1885. Other than the Elevador de Santa Justa (which actually is an elevator), these vehicles are actually funiculars, which look very much like trams, only on a steep slope. The one we used was the Elevador da...

    Lisbon Transportation

    Strolling in Lisbon is tiring, because there are many and steep hills close to each other. If you want to go up to Chiado (and you must, of course) a simple secret is: Enter the Metro station of Baixa-Chiado in R. Crucifixo, go across it, and use the automatic stairs that will leave you uphill. Walking down will be easier, and Chiado is also a...

    I'm a daily bike user in Brussels and I wanted to take my brompton bike with me, but I heard that the city was bike-unfriendly.. and took the decision to leave my bike home. Therefore, I expected Lisbon to be a bikeless city, but what a surprise : many bikes, a mostly bikeable landscape, and plenty of small roads asking for more ;) I found a...

    By the time we had finished our 9-day, 2500 km trip around Portugal we had grown fond of our little Budget rental - a Fiat Punto.It turned out to be just the right size for small villages and could do just fine on the 4-lane superhighways as well. I did not even find the Portugese to be crazy drivers as some reports had suggested (could it be...
