The metro network, or underground, is a great way to travel to most places in Lisbon, and to explore some of its best attractions.
It’s also the cheapest way to travel from and to Lisbon Airport.
There are four subway lines, each identified by a different colour: green (Telheiras – Cais do Sodré), blue (Reboleira – Santa Apolónia), yellow (Odivelas – Rato), and red (Aeroporto – São Sebastião).
