"The Lisbon subway system is a..." Lisbon Transportation Tip by J_Antunes

Lisbon Transportation: 531 reviews and 688 photos


The Lisbon subway sistem is a nice way to travel inside Lisbon. It takes you almost to most of the city and to the major connections to the suburbs. It's not an expensive way of transport. You have to purchase 7colinas card (costs 0,50?) and then charge it with the ticket you want (1 day ticket: 3,70?; Ticket bus+ subway 1,25?; simple ticket 0,80?; return 1,45?; 10 units 7,30?).

The majority of the stations are remodeled and clean. The subway is still a rather safe place but at peak hours you should be careful (like in all other subway sistem) with pickpockets. More information at www.metrolisboa.pt where you can find a diagram of the network or in the following link: http://img367.imageshack.us/img367/2449/semttulopk4.jpg.

The subway station is also a place for art and many stations were built by famous architechts and decorated by important plastic artists. In the following link you can read more about the art in the subway: http://www.metrolisboa.pt/Default.aspx?tabid=377.
