  Gare do Oriente
by rp6686

From the north you have two options. You can exit at "Gare do Oriente" or to "Santa Apolónia" (also refered to "Sta Apolónia" or simply "Apolónia"). "Santa Apolónia" is the end station, "Gare do Oriente" is a big train/ bus and metro terminal. In my humble opinion it's easier to exit at Gare do Oriente (it's not the end station!) and then to go by metro or bus to anywhere. The metro station 3 floors below the train (you'll easily find indications... the subway symbol is a white M over red). There are lot's of bus stops around the terminal.

Lisbon subway:
Subway prices: 0,55 Euros (Single ticket); 1,05 Euros ('Go and return' ticket [one ticket, two trips]); 1,40 Euros (1 day pass).
