I have read other discussions similar to this, but I haven't found a recent post regarding the train travel from Lisbon airport to Sintra, specifically, later at night. Maybe someone has traveled recently and could give me their opinion?
I'm arriving at Lisbon airport at 9.45pm and want to go to Sintra the same evening, I will only have carry on luggage so shouldn't be too long getting through customs/immigration. I've seen mixed reviews about safety at night, and I will be traveling alone. My accommodation said to get a transfer for €40 or stay the night in Lisbon, but other comments have said it's not much different from traveling on NYC subway at night, which I've done fairly frequently/feel relatively safe doing.
One article said if traveling at night just sit with other passengers - are there likely to be many people traveling at that time on a weekday?
When I arrive at Sintra train station, should it be fairly easy to flag down a taxi or order Uber to accommodation (a 10m drive from the station)?
I have traveled solo a fair amount, if I arrived during the day I wouldn't think twice about it. Just being night in a country I haven't visited before and not speaking Portuguese. Thank you!
