TTR006 Out & About Lisbon
  Zoom

We look at flights to Lisbon, the airport and getting "down town" and explore the city. Lisbon has a modern and efficient metro,  we examine it in depth and tell you how to avoid the pitfalls! The tram system is a delightful city icon where the old work horses have been joined by new trams that add a touch of colour and a new transport dimension. The old harbour district is linked to the newer area by no less than three funiculars, each with its very own distinctive character.   Lisbon is divided from its southern suburbs, and indeed from all points south, by the river Tagus. The 25th Abril suspension bridge now boasts a rail link on the lower deck. Travel on the new trains and see how they fit into the public transport geography of the city. Oriente is the rail and metro station which serves the Expo site. It is also stunning! Designed by the Spaniard Calatrava this vast gateway is a modern railway cathedral of glass and steel. We have a quick look at the Expo site and enjoy the views from the cable car.  We offer some suggestions for attractions beyond the city : along the Estoril suburban rail line to Cascais and then cross country by Stagecoach bus to the beautiful and ancient city of Sintra before returning to Lisbon by rail via the legendary suburb of Benfica, a  journey north, on the route of the Porto Alfa, to Vila Franca, the ferry across the Tagus which links Lisbon with the rail network to Beja and the Algarve. We take the ferry and view of the city from this vantage point, and look at travel opportunities from the CP's Barreiro terminus south of the estuary. Narrated. RT 65 mins ©FHP 2000
