The best way to get from the airport to the conference site is using the Metro (follow the Metro_icon.jpg). Average waiting time at the airport is 15 minutes. Ticket type is a Z3, costing 1.20 €. The trip takes about 20 minutes. You travel on the E line (violet), in the direction of Estadio do Dragão, and leaving at station Trindade, at a 5-minutes walk from the conference venue.
