By train - Lisbon
By train Train Review

If you want to visit some great places near Lisbon, such as Belém, Oeiras and Cascais, you have to take the train at Cais do Soudre. At Cais do Sodre you have the subway as well (metro) wich do the connection to several places in Lisbon.
There are very comfortable and the view is amazing because the line is just by side the sea. Don’t miss.
If you want to go to/from Lisbon by train you have to go to Sta. Apolónia or to the Gar do Oriente.

Go to http://www.cp.pt for further information such as timetables or tickets.

By cable car Airport and Air Travel Review

A must see thing and must go in, is the cable car. It is located in the Parque das Nações and it goes between Torre Vasco da Gama and the Marina locks over the river Tagus. I didn’t go but I could appreciate it when I went to the Oceanário. Great view we must have from there it is for sure. Next time I will go for sure!

By Car - Lisbon
By Car Driving Review

Perhaps it isn't the best way to visit Lisbon, because of the horrible traffic, but by car you can reach all the places without having to buy tickets, without any schedules...
I visited Lisbon and other near towns such as Estoril, Cascais, Oeiras and Sintra, by car.

By Ferry - Lisbon
By Ferry Ferry Review

One way to cross the River Tagus and visit Cacilhas in Almada, is by ferry. Go to Cais do Sodré and buy a ticket to Cacilhas (EUR 0,60). When I been there we cross the bridge 25 de Abril by car and we return to Lisbon by ferry.
The trip is fast and we can admire the boats and the fabulous views.
The view when we were approaching Lisbon is something; take a look at the photo I took. We can see the Praça do Comercio (Square), the Castle of S. George up the hill and … just amazing!

Tram - Lisbon

Tram

By Tram Tram Electrico Review

Well I didn’t take the tram, but it seems an excellent way to visit lots of beautiful places in Lisbon. The tram 28 is the main tourist attraction, it reaches the Castle of St George and others points of interest in Lisbon, offering amazing views of the city and out over the River Tagus (rio Tejo).

You can take it at Campo Ourique–Martim Moniz .
