Travel

Exept for a few participants, everyone arrives by plane at Aeroporto Humberto Delgado Lisboa on Friday 25 March and departs on Sunday 27 March. Shuttles are not arranged between the airport and the hotel.

It is easy to travel in both directions between the airport and the hotel by using public transport – the Metro in particular.

Lisbon Airport has a metro station on the edge of terminal 1 in the arrivals hall. The metro (red line) connects the city center and the other three metro lines to the airport.                                                                                                                                                                      • Follow the metro signs and you will arrive at the underground station at the airport.
• Tickets can be purchased from the machines at the airport.

To use this system, you need to buy a Viva Viagem card once, which costs €0.50.

• You then recharge it with an amount of your choice. A single ticket costs around €1.40 and for a whole day on the metro you will pay around €6.
• Every 6 to 9 minutes, a metro departs from Lisbon Airport between 06:30 in the morning and 01:00 at night.

The journey time to the city center is approximately 30 minutes. Take the red metro line at the airport and switch to the yellow metroline in metro station Saldanha. Take the metro in Saldanha direction Rato and get off at metro station Picoas.

The hotel is about 2 minutes walking from Picoas metro station.

For the transport between airport and hotel, only the cost of the Viva Viagem card and the cost of a whole day ticket for up to 3 days will be refunded.
