travel information

in lisbon there is a choice of trains, buses, trams, taxis, metro, funiculars (glória and bica) and car rental agencies. Domestic flights in portugal are relatively expensive. car hire is a good choice for a bigger party.

for detailed information regarding accessibilities you can also visit the website of transpor.

cp lines serving the city:
lisboa/sintra line - rossio and oriente stations
lisboa/cascais line - cais do sodré station

santa apolónia station is the main departure point for trains from lisboa to the north and outside portugal.
