How to get there

The stadium is accessible by cab, but travelers should note that vehicles are only permitted to travel to specified locations. As a result, visitors must walk about a mile (2 kilometers) to the stadium’s entrance. Catching a cab post-match can be a true test of patience, so travelers should be prepared to wait. The nearest metro station is Campo da Polvora.
