Lodging and practicalities

Pensão Fonte Luminosa (200 meters from IST, see map below) has a special price for IST guests. Just let them know you are going to participate in the Black Holes Workshop at IST. The list below contains other hotels in the surroundings of IST-Alameda (see map below):

The subway system is a convenient means of transportation for traveling within Lisbon and to reach IST-Alameda. The closest subway stations are Alameda (Green and Red lines), on the Eastern side, and Saldanha (Yellow and Red lines), on the western side. See map below or click here for network diagram.

Since 2012, the subway connects the airport directly to the city center. From the airport, IST can be easily reached by taking the red line to Alameda station. Alternatively, you can take a taxi for less than 10€.

If you prefer to travel by train, Lisbon is served by two stations where international trains stop. The older Estação de Santa Apolónia is located close to downtown, while Gare do Oriente is located in the eastern and more modern part of the city. They are both connected to the subway system.

The V Black Holes Workshop will take place in the Alameda campus of IST. The venue will be the amphitheater of Complexo Interdisciplinar, located at the right hand side of building numbered 26 in the campus map below.
