Directions and Transportation
From Central Lisbon to the Complexo
The full address of the venue is the following:
Instituto para a Investigacao Interdisciplinar da Universidade de Lisboa, also known as Complexo Interdisciplinar,
Av. Prof. Gama Pinto, 2
The easiest way to reach the complexo is by subway ("Metro") trains: take the Yellow Line
(Linha Amarela), get off at Cidade Universitaria station, and choose the exit
"Hospital de Santa Maria", which is situated in Avenida Prof. Gama
Pinto. Walk the Avenida Gama Pinto (slightly) uphill until the traffic light, cross the street to reach the left side of the road,
and keep walking the Avenida Gama Pinto. The Complexo is the last building of the Avenida
on the left side of the road, at the corner with Avenida das Forcas Armadas (200 m. from the Metro station).

From the Airport to Central Lisbon
- By bus
Buses leave just in front of the arrival lounge. You can either take the Aerobus Line 1 (cost 3,50 Euro) or
buses 745 and 44 (1,75 Euro). All of them go to the city centre passing through Campo Pequeno where the Hotel Zurique is located. Notice
that if you have a big luggage you may be denied boarding on buses 745 and 44. Moreover, the Aerobus ticket
gives you free rides for 24 hours on all Lisbon buses and trams.
- By taxi
Taxis too leave just in front of the arrival lounge. Taxis are rather cheap, as a ride to the city centre is about than 10 Euro
(if the driver is a honest one), while the ride to
the Hotel Zurique should be around 6 Euro.
Tickets for Public Transportation
Tickets can be purchased at the automatic selling machines at every subway station.
With the first ticket you will receive a VIVA Card (similar to an Oyster Card in London),
that you have to recharge.
When you recharge it, you can either choose to buy some courses for the metro or you can choose to
put some money in it (ZAPPING option); in this ways the VIVA Card is valid on all Lisbon Public Transportation:
Metro, Buses, Trams, Trains and Ferries.
We suggest to use the ZAPPING option (notice that purchasing the ticket directly on the bus or on the tram
costs 1.75 and 3.50 Euro respectively, while if your VIVA Card is recharged the same rides will cost 1.15 Euro.)
The cost of most rides is 1.15 Euro: you will spend between 10 and 15 Euro during your stay.
