British Airways has frequent flights to Lisbon. Flights land at Portela Airport, also known as Lisbon Airport, four and a half miles north-east of Lisbon's city centre. After your Lisbon flight lands, take a taxi or Aerobus into central Lisbon and before long you'll be enjoying coffee and cake in a Lisbon cafe or tackling the cobbled streets of Lisbon's seven hills.
When your Lisbon flight lands, the quickest way into the city centre is by taxi, which takes about 15-30 minutes, depending on traffic. Buy a Taxi Voucher from Lisbon Tourist Information in Flight Arrivals and wait for a taxi driver to call you. Or take a taxi from outside Flight Arrivals, which run on a meter. Choose the Aerobus for a quick, cheap trip to central Lisbon. Save money on local buses, which travel to the city centre as well as Nations Park, and connect with the metro. Leave early to catch your return flight from Lisbon, in case traffic is heavy.
After your Lisbon flight lands, head into central Lisbon to see Belm district's Discoveries Monument commemorating explorer Vasco da Gama's 15th-century voyages. Admire religious carvings in the National Museum of Ancient Art. Learn about local folk music at Lisbon's Fado Museum in the Alfama district and hear a concert by Lisbon's prized Gulbenkian Orchestra. Enjoy traditional Lisbon cuisine in the Bairro Alto and stay there for cocktails in trendy Lisbon bars. Or seek out Lisbon's media types in warehouse bars along Lisbon's renovated Alcntara dock area.
