Please provide the area/suburb/district that we should book our hotel when staying in (1) Lisbon & (2) Sintra, taking into account the proximity of transport, sites etc
Any other other tips when choosing the location of a hotel will be appreciated.
I am visiting for a week at the end of November, should I hire a car for the week? I can't find any recent advice, many years ago it was suggested that if the weather is wet don't drive! If the buses are frequent and reliable should I rely on them...........?
I am planning a trip to Albufeira in March......I am staying for a month.....I want to find an apt in an area where I won't need a car hire...where I can walk to find my needs for a self catering apt...is March a busy time in this area...is there a noise factor...I read that there is an active night.ife on the 'strip'...
Any tips welcome.
This is for information. Search internet for Albufeira flood 1st November 2015 for more.
On the afternoon of Sunday 1st November the lower part of old town area of Albufeira was hit by a flash flood following hours of torrential rain. Two metres of mud, stone and water entered the lowest part of town with great force. Considerable damage was caused. It will be some time before anything like normality is restored.
Thee pictures I took on Monday morning 2nd November - http://1drv.ms/1GXC499
It is only this part of town that is affected.

We will be hiring a car via Enterprise at Faro Airport and plan to use the toll roads frequently i.e. visiting Lisbon & Seville etc. Having checked out the official website I am left slightly confused as to how the system exactly works. Do I have to pre-pay the rental company in advance with a guess of how much tolls I am liable to use or can I settle the tolls I have used at a later date once the exact amount is known and charged to the rental company. The rental company will already have my credit card details on file - this happened with tolls in the USA. Hoping that someone who has first hand knowledge can answer this question please
We are planning a trip in November. The total duration will be approx 10, 14 or 16 days depending on availability of return flights. We will be flying from Lisbon to Madrid. Travel between Madrid & Barcelona unknown at this stage. We depart Barcelona.
1) How long we should spend in each city and surrounds & why (ratio or exact # days)?
Given the number of days in each city:
1) how many days should be spent in the actual cities themselves?
2) how many days should be allocated to day trips out the city ?
- provide order of (out-of-city) places/destinations that can be visited in one day & how much time should be allocated for each
- provide service provider / carrier type that will get us from point A, to B to point C etc
3) how many nights (if any) should be allocated to out of city visits?
- Please provide names places/towns
Any other tips & helpful suggestions will be appreciated
