Restaurants in Lisbon
Lunch is provided throughout the conference (lunch packs) and we hope that you will also join us for our informal conference meal (at By The Wine, separate booking required). We have some recommendations for restaurants based on our previous experiences.
A bank is probably the last place you’d expect to find one of Lisbon’s great cultural assets, but hidden beneath the Millennium BCP branch in Rua dos Correeiros is an archaeological site that is layered with remarkably well preserved remains of Phoenician, Roman, Islamic, medieval and 15th to mid-18th century occupation.
You can join for free an hour long guided tour through the underground. It is just 15 min walk from the EMCDDA – and is a unique historical site that reveals nearly 2,500 years of Lisbon history with an imaginatively conceived small museum .
Address: Rua dos Correeiros 21 – Lisbon, 1100-061 ind.millenniumbcp.pt – You can also find a Virtual Tour on the website.
If there is sufficient interest we will organise a tour on Saturday 27th October, after the conference (max 20 participants).
Participants who are interested should contact Klaudia Kepa Klaudia.Kepa@emcdda.europa.eu or Marisa Gomes Marisa.Gomes@emcdda.europa.eu until mid-September 2018. E-mail Subject: 2018 EUSPR Conference – The Underground Lisbon
