VERY EASY to catch a metro to Lisbon Center (Lisbon is also referred to as Lisboa)

ACCOMMODATIONS SUGGESTIONS:

Airbnb is available in Lisbon.
The festival location is the venue: Voz do Operario at R. da Voz do Operário 13, 1100-575 Lisbon

I recommend staying in one of the following neighborhoods:
Alfama, Castelo de Sao Jorge, Mouraria, Graca, Chiado, Praca dos Restauradores.

If you would like to share accommodations with someone on the tour please let me know and I will try to pair you with someone else who is interested in sharing. 

If you have found some place and are unsure of its location in relation to the milongas, let me know and I will be able to ask and assist as I can.

PACKING

Lisbon will be warm at this time of year. Bring light clothing and your fan! Expect to sweat!

Once you have secured your accommodations and flight information you will send them to me. I will be sending you my contact information: where I will stay and our meeting point for Wednesday.

And don’t forget, if you want to visit the beach, you are an easy train ride away from a beach for sun bathing and swimming.

Often the videos you see of some of the most famous tango teachers are taken here in Lisbon. You will be there live! So get excited!!!!!
