Questions about practical things for the Euromeet

by marielexoteria Online Now May 8, 2009 at 11:10 PM

The Euromeet is approaching and I can only say "woohoo!" - at the same time it's a little scary for me, as a newbie not knowing what to expect. And this is the first solo trip I'm doing where I'm not staying at somebody's place...so I have some (dumb) questions:

- I read the Euromeet page regularly. I assume the CP tickets aren't valid on Carris buses or trams and to use those we have to buy bus/tram tickets, right? Or is there a card/ticket valid on both?

- Are there fountains with drinkable water like in Rome, or where could I refill a bottle if I bring one with me?

- Not exactly related to Cascais, but when I arrive at Cais do Sodré, how do I go to the Hard Rock Café Lisbon (Avenida da Liberdade, 2)? I collect t-shirts and would like to buy them on my private time (I don't wanna carry more stuff than I have to on the Lisbon tour :P)

TIA guys

    I'm hardly an expert on Lisbon, but we were just there a few weeks ago, and our hotel was very close to the Hard Rock Cafe. You can either walk up or take a bus. We did that walk a few times and I would say it takes about 30 minutes, but of course there are many shops along the way, plus the lovely Rossio, so we took our time. I don't remember seeing drinking fountains, but I'm sure Antonio would know.

    I am so sorry to be missing this meet. Lisbon and the surrounding towns are fantastic!

    Regarding the card, I'll try to find the ingo. And regarding the Hard Rock, it's far from Cais do Sodré, you can by the shirt either when you go from the airport to Cais do S, stop there, then to Cais do S again, or if you plan to visit Lisbon, do it them, it's close to anywhere in the city centre.

    wait with your hard rock shirt until the day we visit central lisbon.
    the hard rock cafe is located right in the center and i can show you where it is if you want and you can easily stop by on the tour around lisbon and get your shirt.

    Hola Mariel
    by now you know everything about Hard Rock Café and how to get there
    You know about CP tickets, etc
    Regarding the drinking fountains there are some scattered by the town mostly on gardens and green spaces
    You can refil your bottle either there or on any public toilet -the water runing there is drinkable except if otherwise stated.
