The Expo area is very close to Lisbon Airport. You can take the subway (3rd train station) and it will take you 12mn until Oriente train station and then it’s a 5 minute walk. Or by taxi (8/10 mn depending on the traffic). If you are really brave you can even walk (55 mn) but beware, the temperature will be really hot, except if you arrive by night! Have a nice journey.
