Welcome to Lisbon

Lisboa Bridge

Lisbon in Portuguese: "Lisboa" is the capital of Portugal. Known for thrilling nightlife, it`s famed monuments, in the last few years it has become recognized as Europe's cosmopolitan gambling centre, due to its two huge casinos.

Driving in Lisbon

Lisbon can be accessed from six main highways. Coming from the south A2 or east A6 - the main route from Madrid, there are the two bridges: The A2 goes all the way to the 25 de Abril bridge, which usually has lots of traffic getting into Lisbon, specially weekday mornings. This is the best option if you want to go to the center of Lisbon or to the west A5 - Estoril, Cascais, Sintra; If you branch from the A2 into the A12, you'll get to the Vasco da Gama bridge, the longest bridge in Europe, it usually has less traffic than the older 25 de Abril bridge but, a more expensive toll. This is the best option to go to the eastern/northern section of Lisbon, to the airport and to the Parque das Na��es - the former Expo 98 site, and also to take the A1 or A8 going north. Coming from the north, there is the A1, that connects Lisbon to Santar�m, F�tima, Leiria, Coimbra, Aveiro, Oporto. The A1 ends near the airport. There's also the A8, which goes to Torres Vedras, Caldas da Rainha, Alcoba�a, Leiria. From the west, there is the A5, which connects to Estoril, Cascais, and the IC19 that crosses all the suburbs and ends near Sintra. Lisbon has three ring roads: The 2nd circular, which connects the A1 to the IC19; the CRIL IC17 (still incomplete), which connects the Vasco da Gama bridge with the A1 and A8; and the CREL A9, which connects the A1 with the A8, IC19, A5, and goes all the way to the Estoril coast. Regarding toll highways - Portugal has a unified electronic toll paying system - it's usually on the one or two left most lanes of the toll booths, marked with a green "V" - Via Verde - "Green Lane". If you don't subscribe to the system, pay the toll at the manned booths, cash and most debit and credit cards accepted. If you by chance get distracted and go through the Via Verde lane, you have 48 hours to go to a Via Verde office and pay the toll without a fine.

Lisbon Airport

Portugal's largest international and main air hub for Tap/Air Portugal is the Aeroporto da Portela, located between Loures and Lisboa (IATA: LIS; Alameda das Comunidades Portuguesas, Tel: 21 841 35 00, Fax: 21 841 36 75) which is linked to the city centre by an Aerobus, line 91 every 20 minutes from 07:00 - 21:00 and bus lines 5, 8, 22, 44, 45, 83 (board fare �1,35 or 7 Colinas can be used which can be bought at the airport post office.

What to see in Lisbon

Lisbonne and Castle

Instead of paying for a trip in one of the tourist trams, try line. It takes you by many of Lisbon's most famous sites, and although it is overrun with tourists, you still get a flavor of the locals.

The Gulbenkian Museum, Avenida de Berna, 45A. Avenida de Berna, 45A. Created from the personal collection of Calouste Gulbenkian, an Armenian who longed to see all his treasures displayed in a museum. A nice assortment of Egyptian artifacts, along with paintings by masters such as Rembrandt, Manet, Monet, Renoir, and Cassat. The museum's gardens are worth a visit in and of themselves, as a little oasis in the middle of downtown Lisbon. Entry to the museum is free for students with ID.

St. Jorge's Castle. Located up the hill, with a great view over the city and the river. If you have the energy, get there by walking from downtown, going through the fantastic old neighborhood of Alfama. Entry fee 5 euros.

Santa Justa's Elevator. Located downtown, this elevator was designed by a follower of French engineer Gustav Eiffel and connects the downtown to the Trindade, located several meters uphill. 7 Colinas valid.

Praca do Comerrcio. This magnificent plaza, facing the river, is the beginning of Lisboa's downtown. It is also known as 'Terreiro do Pa�o', meaning 'Grounds of the Palace', relating to its function before the Great Earthquake of 1755.

Bel�m,. This monument-packed neighbourhood features the likes of Belem Tower (entry fee 3 euros)(Torre de Bel�m), the Jer�nimos Monastery, Padr�o dos Descobrimentos (entry fee 2,5 euros) and the modern Bel�m Cultural Center. A stroll around its many gardens enjoying the river's bright blue is also a must. In front of the former Royal Palace of Bel�m, now the Presidential Palace, there is a massive statue looking out to sea, representing Afonso de Albuquerque, first Viceroy of Portuguese India at the early 16th century. Housed in the former ridding school of the palace, don't miss the world's largest collection of coaches and royal vehicles at the Coach Museum (Museu dos Coches). Take tram 15 to the west, which follows the coast line.

Chiado,. Take a stroll along the historical streets of this elegant shopping district, stopping for a cup of coffee with the statue of Fernando Pessoa, Portugal's great Modernist poet. Head uphill to Bairro Alto, for stunning views of the city and some wild partying in Lisbon's most popular nightclub district.

Downtown (Baixa). This part of the city was completely rebuilt after the 1755 earthquake by the Marquis de Pombal. The planned layout, greatly different from what you will see in the more ancient neighborhoods, is a testimony to the ideas of the Enlightenment.

Ponte 25 de Abril. This sister bridge of the Golden Gate in San Francisco was designed by the same architect in 1966 to connect Lisbon with the Setubal peninsula across the Tagus (Tejo) River. Formerly known as the Salazar Bridge, it was renamed after the Carnation Revolution, which on April 25, 1974 ended the dictatorship.

Cristo Rei. Similar to the Christ statue in Rio de Janeiro, this statue stands over 100 meters tall on the opposite bank of the Tejo River from downtown Lisbon. Views from the top of the statue are breathtaking, although the elevator up will cost you 4 euros.

Jardim Zoologico. 10am-6pm (Apr-Sept), 10am-6pm (. A zoo that is fairly pricey, but has a variety of exotic animals featuring sea-lions and dolphins. �15.00.

Parque das Na��es. Built for the 1998 World Expo, the eastern side of town (take the Metro to Oriente) is a change from downtown and has one of the world's largest aquariums, 11.00 euro admission fee, among other sights.

Lisbon metro. Most of the metro system is a free art gallery. You'll find art by contemporary artists inspired by the stations' surrounding area. Check the subway webpage for more details on this curiosity. The red line is the newest one and has the best pieces of art.

Alfama. This neighbourhood is a sign of the Muslim presence in the city, with the buildings very close to each other, and very irregular streets. It's very atmospheric.
