Night of the 12th February
- For the Night of the 12th February we will be staying at Évorahotel.
- Hotel Site: http://www.evorahotel.pt/Index.aspx
- The rate is 53 € for a single room (incl. Breakfast)/night and 58€ for a double/twin Room (incl. Breakfast)/night.
- You may book your room through e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org using our code (winelover).
Please note that in Évora you may stay at another Hotel but that the Bus will leave us at the Évorahotel and cannot take you to other Hotels. Also on the following day we will start from Évorahotel.
What to Wear
It is still Winter so we cannot promise high temperatures, but surely the sun will be out! Temperatures are around 8-15 degrees celsius.
Arriving at the airport you may either take a cab to your Hotel or use the Metro.
- Cabs are relatively cheap comparing to other countries in Europe. From the airport to the Rossio Square (city center) you pay around 15€ (already including the fare for your luggage).
- One Metro ride costs you about 1,40€ and the first time you purchase the ticket you have to buy the reloadable card which costs 0,50€. A 24 hour ticket costs 6€/day. If you are staying at one of the Hotels of Brown you take the red line and then switch to the Green line in direction Baixa/chiado, exiting at this station.
For our official program we will provide a Bus except for Saturday, where you may take the Metro to get around during the day and to our Birthday party! In Lisbon the Bus will always pick us up/leave us at Rossio Square (map: https://goo.gl/maps/w3fIa)
If you have any other questions considering Lisbon, how to get round, accommodation, etc feel free to contact Celma through DM in Facebook.
We are thrilled to have you and are sooooo looking forward to February! 🙂
