Lisbon Airport to Cascais

March 17, 2014

From airport, outside airport yellow bus to train station (Cais do Sodré). Last stop, about 30 minutes. Cost 3.50 euros.

Announcements on bus in English.

Decaying colonial wealth en-route through Lisbon.

There is a metro, but I was told bus is better as metro longer journey.

At train station, train to Cascais, last stop, about 35 minutes. Cost a little over one euro, half price if over 65 years old.

Ensure get on train that is leaving and it states Cascais.

Announcements in Portuguese, but also display of stations as station is approached.

Lovely train journey along the coast.

Area around train station not attractive, head to old part.

Old part within walking distance, or hire taxi for hotel.
