  • 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...

    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.
