Getting into Lisbon

If you are arriving by plane, and are staying in the city center, the most comfortable way to get to the hotel from the airport is by taking a taxi. A trip to the city center should cost around 10€ to 15€ (the event venue is much closer). If you feel more comfortable you can get a taxi voucher from the airport.

There is also a subway line (Red) running from the airport. If you are staying somewhere around the line, it is also a good alternative (and cheaper).
