Lisboa Oriente is the largest train station in Lisbon. Getting to it will allow us to reach both the south of Portugal (to Lagos, Portimao or Albufeira), but also the north of the country (to Porto or Braga). Below I briefly describe how to get to this station from Humberto Delgado Airport.

From Lisbon Airport to Oriente Station by subway
Since the new line was completed in 2012, the fastest way to get from Lisbon airport is by metro. The metro station is right at the entrance to the airport (there is a large parking lot behind the entrance, hard to miss:). The airport and Oriente are connected by the linha Vermelha line in the direction of Sao Sebastião. There are two stops between the airport and Oriente, and the trip takes about 6 minutes. To get to the metro station, a Viva Viagem card “rebound” is required. Thus, for a single ticket you will pay €1.50 + €0.50 as the cost of making the card if you do not have one.
