Lisbon to Porto - Estadio de Dragão (FC Porto FC)

Firstly you need to understand the route.

There is no Metro at Lisbon Airport yet.

You would need to get a cab from Lisbon Airport to Gare Oriente Station.

This would take between 10 and 15 minutes dependent on time of day.

From there you would have to get a train to Porto Campanha Station.

Transit time about 2hrs 40 mins to 2hrs 50mins.

From Porto Campanha you would then need to get the Metro to Estadio de Dragão - The Porto Stadium.which is the terminus and four stations down on the ABC and E lines

To be safe and allow for problems you therefore need to allow 4 to 4.5 hours for the trip.

For information on the Porto Metro see:

You will find a link entitled:

Hope this helps.
