How to get to your hotel from the airport

The Lisbon International Airport is close to the city centre and inside the city limits.

The easiest way to get from the airport to the hotel is by taxi. As usual, beware of taxi fares for tourists on airports. :-(

The safest thing is to buy a taxi voucher at the tourist desk on the arrival lounge. This grants you a fixed price on your taxi ride to the hotel. If you want to take your chances with the normal price, it is usually better to get the taxi on the departures, rather than on the arrivals... anyway, setting a price before the journey is safer.

There is also an AEROBUS that can take from the airport to the city center. Go until the end of the line (Cais do Sodré) and then catch tram 15 to get to Alcântara, if you are going to Vila Galé Ópera Hotel. See this map for details.

You can always take a regular bus, but there are no direct buses and you will have to change. There are serveral combinations you may want to take: bus up to "Areeiro", then subway from "Areeiro" to "Cais do Sodré" then tram 15 from there to the hotel. But it is really too much trouble.

Please consult with the tourist reception desk for further details. You can also read a more detailed information page here.
