Parque das Nacoes
This neighborhood was built up at the end of the 1990s
mostly because of the Expo '98. The pavilions and
structures that once were the home of all the Expo's
attractions and exhibits are still culturally and
artistically significant. In Parque das Nações you'll
explore conference and concert pavilions, a shopping
center, trendy restaurants and an enjoyable cable car
ride you can't miss out on. On top of this, the

Four of us took a taxi from the centre of Lisbon and it cost 15 euro, so you should be paying a bit less.

‫We ate at La Rucula, an Italian restaurant very near the oceanarium (200-250 meters). Very tasty and nice. There are also other restaurants at walking distance in the area.‬
