Lisbon is well served regarding transportation due to its strategic position (geopolitical analysis), so it will be easy for participants to travel. Potential options are by:
All companies fly to Lisbon (including low cost, e.g. Easyjet or Bmibaby), i.e., participants have the ability to choose according to their needs. For potential information regarding companies, flights and even price comparison the organising committee suggests Momondo website (http://www.momondo.com/).
Flight time depends on each participation location, although estimated times are:
- Europe (between 1 and 4 hours);
- America (between 8-14 hours);
- Asia (between 12-15 hours).
However, Lisbon is a highly touristic city, so the organising committee strongly recommends participants to book their flights as soon as possible.
Lisbon is served by multiple motorways: A1 (from Oporto), A2 (from Algarve), A5 (from Cascais), A8 (from Leiria), A9 (External Root of Lisbon) and A36 (Internal Root of Lisbon). For all participants that intend to travel by car, the organising committee strongly recommends the use of Michelin website (http://www.viamichelin.com/). Beyond presenting the potential roots to Lisbon, such website estimates the costs (fuel, tolls, and parking) of each option.
Travelling to Lisbon by train is also possible despite requiring the use of multiple train companies. e.g.: Eurostar, TGV, Renfe and CP (Portuguese Railroad- http://www.cp.pt/cp/displayPage.do?vgnextoid=87cbd5abe2a74010VgnVCM1000007b01a8c0RCRD&lang=en). Comparing with the prior options, train travel is more costly.
