Lisbon Tips

The official language is Portugese, but many people speak English.

The currency is the Euro, and you'll need to exchange your currency for Euros if you wish to shop or dine in the city (unless using credit cards). ATM machines and exchange bureaus are located in town.

Some restaurants include a service charge on the bill, otherwise it's customary to tip 5-10%.

Taxi drivers should be tipped around 10% of the fee.

The city can be explored on foot. Visitors can also choose from a variety of ways to get around, including the metro, tram and bus.

There are 2 main stations: one at Cais do Sodre and the other at Praca Rossio. To get to Estoril and Cascais, use Cais do Sodre. To get to Sintra, use Praca Rossio.

Taxis can be found at the pier and run by meter.

If you eat in one of the city's restaurants, the waiter will probably bring out starter dishes that you haven't requested. These are called couvert and are not free. So long as you don't touch them you shouldn't be charged for them.

Pick-pockets prey on certain public transportation routes, including metro, bus and tram lines. The most popular pick-pocketing site is on Tram 28, a public line that works its way through all the major tourist areas of the city.

Common sense is advised when it comes to safety - don't carry large amounts of cash, or important documents (passport, etc), and keep bags secured, with the shoulder strap across your body.
