WE took the metro a few times while we stayed 4 days in Lisbon. It is inexpensive and you buy your trip card at vending machines in the stations.

One of the most interesting architectures within metro stations and public transports in Europe IMO. Definitely recommend it if you like contemporary art

We have been using the Metro system in Lisbon and it’s great. Really easy to navigate. You can also get the equivalent of an Oyster card for €0.50 and top it as you need to for the Metro and busses etc. Very good system.

Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally,
"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its
streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and
viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the
famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa,
having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used

I don't know exactly, but the 4 metro lines are interlinked, and getting to the main railway stations is very easily reached by metro. Hope this helps?

by the way, if you do not speak Portugese then station staff often are unwilling or unable to help. The ticket booth staff cope with English a lot better
