How to Get to Parque das Nações from Lisbon’s City Centre

Find out how to get to Parque das Nações, a riverfront area located 9km / 6mi north of Lisbon’s city centre.

By metro

This is the fastest way to reach Parque das Nações from the city centre. It’s approximately a 30-minute journey from the Baixa. Use the Viva Viagem card.

Your final destination is the Oriente station on the red line. Let’s say you’re at the Baixa-Chiado metro station. Take the blue line, direction Reboleira. Get off at the Saldanha station to change to the red line, direction Aeroporto. Just follow the signs, which are colour coded. Your final stop is the Oriente station, located inside one of Lisbon’s main transport hubs. Go through the Vasco da Gama shopping centre, and head straight to the riverfront.

However, depending on your location, you may choose any of the three interchange stations – Alameda (green line), São Sebastião (blue line) and Saldanha (yellow line) – to take the red line and get to your final destination – the Oriente station.

By bus

Several buses departing from the city centre stop at the Oriente station, namely #708 (from the Martim Moniz Square), #750 and #782 (from Cais do Sodré), #759 (from Restauradores), #794 (from Terreiro do Paço). The Viva Viagem card is also valid on buses.

At the Oriente station, go to the east exit. To reach the waterfront, just follow the signs.

By hop-on hop-off bus

Another practical option to reach this part of the city is to get on board of a sightseeing bus. Both the Olisipo Tour, offered by Yellow Bus, and the blue route, operated by City Sightseeing, stop at Parque das Nações on their route.
