Getting into town

Best to use public transport

Lisbon Airport isn't far from the city, and your journey in should be quick. Although the taxi journey is short, travellers recommend using public transport, as some have had problems with taxi drivers overcharging.


Take the Metro's Red Line to get to the financial centre (Saldanha station) in 15 minutes, or the city centre (Baixa-Chiado) in 30 minutes. Trains leave every six to nine minutes from 06:00-01:00.

Cost: EUR 1.40 one-way, EUR 6 day-pass
Buying tickets: Be aware that machines only accept coins and EUR 5 and EUR 10 notes. 


You can take two lines to the city centre:

  • Line 1 goes to the city centre (Cais do Sodre) and leaves every 20 minutes from both terminals from 07:00-23:20 on weekdays. On weekends, Aerobus Line 1 departs every 25 minutes from 07:00-22:50.
  • Line 2 goes to the financial centre (Av. Jose Malhoa Sul) and leaves every 40 minutes from 07:30-23:00.

Cost: EUR 3.50


The taxi journey to the city shouldn't be expensive and takes only 15 minutes or so. But, to avoid any problems with overcharging, get a pre-paid taxi voucher from the Tourist Information desk. Uber is also available here.

Cost: EUR 15-20 plus extra for luggage (EUR 23 for a taxi voucher)
Location: For a cheaper journey, take a taxi from outside Departures rather than Arrivals
