Arrival in Lisbon
You will be staying at Hotel Príncipe Lisboa, conveniently located in the Lisbon modern city-centre. The location is directly connected to the airport by the subway (red line) and within a 15 minutes walk of our institute. Please find the respective detailed directions below.
From the airport to Hotel Príncipe Lisboa
- By subway (recommended): take the red line, from Aeroporto (first station, at the airport) to S. Sebastião (the last station, whose exit is located just in front of your hotel: just make sure you take the red line exit, which is on the side of the back of the train arriving from the airport, i.e. do not change to the blue line or corresponding exit).
- By taxi: if you decide to take a taxi, we recommend you buy a pre-paid taxi voucher, on sale at the arrivals in the airport, in the Lisboa Welcome Center, or online. The city centre is in zone 1 (including this hotel and the campus), so apparently it should cost around 16 euros.
It should take you around 15 minutes to reach the hotel (or a bit more if there's traffic). A normal taxi ride to the hotel should cost less, but unfortunately the taxi drivers at the airport (and only there!) can sometimes be dishonest and charge you 30 or 40 euros if you do not have the voucher.
For invited guests: please note that unfortunately, according to the Portuguese Science Foundation rules, we cannot refund local urban transportation expenses.
From the airport to the Physics of Information Group
The Physics of Information Group is located in the 10th floor of Torre Norte [North Tower], in the campus of Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), in Lisbon, Portugal.
- By subway: take the red line as described above to reach the hotel, but get off at Saldanha (penultimate station) and then walk to IST, following the blue path indicated in the map below.
- By taxi: indicate the entrance of Instituto Superior Técnico in Av. António José de Almeida as the destination (see map below).
