Lisbon airport transport to city centre

Choice, s metro--bus --taxi

My plane arrives from Paris at 22.40 (20 minutes to 11pm)

Metro cheap and runs till 1am but how safe late at night

Bus a little more but both drop you at at station/stop

That leaves taxis--believe theres a taxi type desk

Metro is safe at night.

Taxis have an extra fee at night (20% more) and if you have luggage another 1,5€ extra, so it will be probably around a min 15€.

Hi Barry,

Whenever I get a taxi from the airport I always take one from the arrivals area (just go up the escalator on your right and continue in that direction). The taxis at the departure are a little iffy. At the arrivals area they are usually nicer. Always demand a receipt - if you get taken for a joy ride the hotel will help you get your money back. As for the Metro it is usually pretty safe, although it depends on where you´re going. If you´re going toward the centre of Lisbon it should be pretty safe at all hours.

Have a great trip!

Manuel

Metro costs €1,90 and that includes 50 cents for the rechargeable ticket card which you can use again and again while in the city.. If your hotel is near a metro station, why pay more?
