You have plenty of options for getting from Lisbon’s Portela Airport to the city centre. The Aerobús shuttle departs every 20 minutes, just make sure you get on the right bus as one heads to the city centre while the other will take you to the financial district. The shuttle can be found outside Terminal 1, and tickets can be purchased online or from the Tourist Information Office inside the Arrivals Hall. Lisbon also has a comprehensive metro and bus system, and these two options are going to be more cost effective. Though both the metro and Carris bus stations are located at Terminal 1, there’s a free shuttle for passengers arriving in Terminal 2. For a more direct option, you can opt for a taxi or Uber. Portugal also has useful ride-sharing apps like DriveNow and Emov, which offer affordable transport options from the airport.
To enter Lisbon you’ll need to have at least six months validity on your passport and one blank page for the entry and exit stamps. Portugal is part of the Schengen Region, so Schengen visa rules apply. Under the Schengen Agreement, Australian citizens don’t need visas for stays of less than 90 days. If you plan to stay for more than 90 days in a six-month period, you’ll need to arrange a visa with your closest Portuguese embassy or consulate. As of 2021, you will also need ETIAS authorisation. This is similar to the USA’s visa waiver program and can be applied for online in a matter of minutes.
A symbolic connection to Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer statue, Cristo Rei watches over Lisbon from the opposite bank of the Tejo River. Views from the top are worth the trip over (and the small charge for taking the elevator up). Lisbon is also famous for its love of the arts, with new modern dance, ballet, opera, theatre and chamber music events happening every month of the year. This art- and culture-loving city is also overflowing with galleries and museums. Though the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga and Museu da Electricidade are standouts, you really can’t go wrong in Portugal, so it’s worth paying a visit to as many of these beauty-packed buildings as you can. For lovers of the great outdoors, Lisbon’s Botanical Gardens, the Jardim Zoológico and Parque das Nações are a must. At the latter, you’ll also find one of the world’s most impressive oceanariums.
