If you are coming from another country, an air flight might be the easiest way to get to Lisbon. Lisbon International Airport (LIS), 7 km away from the city center, has daily flights to and from the major cities in Europe and the world. The airport is in close proximity to the city’s transport network (including subway and buses), which will easily get you to the city center.
