  • [SPECIAL NOTE ON TAKING A TAXI AT THE LISBON AIRPORT: MANDATORY READING!]

  • Arriving by train There are two main train stations in Lisbon: the old Santa Apolónia and Gare do Oriente.
    Santa Apolónia is in the center of the city. But if you arrive by train, most likely you will arrive to Gare do Oriente, an international hub.

  • Underground: Metro de Lisboa
    Check timetables and the lines at Metro de Lisboa
  • Directions to the CCB: The quickest way to reach the CCB is by underground and train. Taking a tramway is another option, possibly nicer, but the traffic in Lisbon can be a problem.
    To reach the CCB - Centro Cultural de Belém, the ECAL2007 venue, take the underground to the station Cais do Sodré which is connected to the train station with the same name. Overground trains from Cais do Sodré take about seven minutes to the station that serves the venue (name of the station: "Belém"). Make sure that the train you are taking stops there!
    When you are outside Belém train station; turn left. Centro Cultural de Belém is 5 mins away walking (if you walk calmly...), past the gardens.
    Check the train stations line

  • Buses and Tramways provide alternatives to reach Belém from almost everywhere in the city.
