Travel options in Lisbon
Public transportation around Lisbon is stress-free and reliable. You have plenty of transport options, which include the subway, buses, trams, taxis, trains, boats, bike, or by foot. Tourists are also advised to use the funicular system, just to experience this kind of transportation once in their lives.
If you’re planning to rent a car during your stay in Lisbon, know that driving around the city is a different story. The city’s narrow and (sometimes) steep streets can be a problem for most tourists not used to these kinds of roads. Also, traffic and parking can be difficult during weekdays.
Driving regulations enforced in Lisbon are similar to other European cities, such as mandatory seatbelts and child carriers, drinking limit of 0.5%, and varying speed limits, including 30mph/50kph in the city, 55mph/90ph on open roads, and 75mph/120kph at highways.
