"Train" Lisbon Transportation Tip by antistar

Lisbon Transportation: 530 reviews and 681 photos

Lisbon has two main stations, Oriente and Santa Apolonia, that deal with long distance and international trains. The central Santa Apolonia station is the busiest of the two, but the Oriente station is dealing with an increasing number of routes too, and is often a stop for trains exiting Santa Apolonia. Despite its distance from the city centre, the Oriente station is worth a visit because of its proximity to the Parque das Nacoes (Expo 98). It's a beautiful piece of architecture in its own right, and clearly visible when you land at Lisbon's airport. The station itself is also much cleaner, more relaxed, more spacious and feels safer than the central station.

There are also a couple of other stations that deal with local trains to places like Sintra. These tend to be the most central of all.
