      I read hours of questions and answers, thanks Claus.

      Portugal 1 hours ago

      flying into Porto from ponta Delgado and out of Lisbon. I already have the last 3 nights booked in Lisbon at grapes and bites ( pretty excited) planning on a couple nights in Porto. have books, have internet, have info on Douro valley stuff, but not sure how to spend those days in between. no car here, have one for five days on sau Miguel. I really do not think after the Azores we need beach stuff. (we tend to like the warm water anyway) wine and port, well yes. history and ruins, yes. beautiful scenery..yes. organized tours not so much unless very low key. Anthony bourdain about to come on tv on Lisbon! yes I know 1000 people have pages on Portugal. most of all vt pages are boring facts I can get out of a book. I am sure there are great ones but not necessarily the top ones or what I want.the questions actually gave me the most honest answers.

    • Public transport to Lagoa do Fogo

      Ponta Delgada Apr 25, 2015 at 3:22 AM

      Hello,

      We (2 people in their 20s) will be going to Sao Miguel in a week. We don't have a driving license and want to use public transport as much as possible. I found a lot of interesting places on the bus map but there is one place I can't find - the Lagoa do Fogo. Is there a bus stop within walking distance to it? Even if we have to walk 1 hour that would still bring us closer.

      We will staying at the Bahia Palace in Agua Alta. I read that there's a hiking trail from the hotel to Lagoa do Fogo from there but it takes 4 hours.

      Any help is greatly appreciated.

      Dear Sir/Madam,
      As the organizer of a small family reunion trip (9 people; all around sixty years) I was thinking of planning a trip on Wednesday 22 April. Leaving Porto in the morning by train we would arrive late morning in Regua. We would like to travel back by boat - preferably a small /private boat - to Porto. Is this a good plan? What are the options and costs?
      Your help would be very much appreciated. Kindest regard, Joseph.

    • Lisbon and day trips

      Lisbon Yesterday

      I'm coming to Lisbon in mid June. I heard that Lisbon is the most beautiful city, but I also want to see other places in Portugal.

      My flight is to Lisbon and I'll be landing at 19:30 PM, so I'm thinking to stay in Lisbon for this night. and after I have 7 full days, so this is my plan, tell me if it's good or should I change anything:
      Day 1 - train from Lisbon-oriente in the morning to Porto (if I take the 7:00 AM train or even 6:09 is it safe to walk alone to oriente?) and staying at a hotel in Porto for the night.
      Day 2 - A bit more of Porto, and then a train to aveiro (I was in Venice, they say it's "little venice") and after another train to Lisbon. from now on each day I stay in Lisbon for the nights.
      Day 3 - exploring Lisbon
      Day 4 - exploring Lisbon
      Day 5 - train to Sintra, cabo da roca and Cascais (can I combine all 3 or even add estoril on the same day??)
      Day 6 - train to Obidos and back to Lisbon
      Day 7 - Another day in Lisbon

      Is that doable and a good plan?? Are the trains cheap (for example, how much would it cost to go from Lisbon to Porto both ways?) Is there a 10 strip card or anything to make it cheaper?

      Also, I understand that Bairro Alto is the place in Lisbon for the nights. Do you think that it's better to search an hotel there or is it far from center? I saw a cheap hotel in Baixa district... is it center/safe area? Can I go from there to Bairro Alto by walk each night?

      Looking for your answers, Thanks in advance!

      Hi there, my son and i are visiting Braga in Oct 2011. We would love to stay in a family home or small intimate place in the old part of town. Is there anything like that? we prefer this type of setting rather than a hotel.

      Also, any ideas about visiting the futbol stadium? I couldn't find much on the internet. My son is obsessed with futbol and braga has a particularly beautiful stadium.

      Thanks so much. :-) we are really excited about our visit.

      Horário de autocarros (ônibus) para Guimarães / timetable to Guimaraes

      Hello,
      Does anyone know the timetable of the buses from Braga to Guimaraes, specially during weekend days?
      I can access by Internet only Rodonorte buses, but I know there are other options, which I cannot consult by websites.
      Thanks for your attention.

      ==
      Olá,
      Alguém poderia me informar os horários dos autocarros de Braga para Guimarães, especialmente durante os dias de fim-de-semana?
      Pela Internet, somente é possível consultar os horários da Rodonorte (escassos nos fins-de-semana). Sei que outras companhias operam no itinerário referido, mas estas não possuem website.
      Obrigado pela atenção.

      Gostaria ainda, se possível, que me confirmassem os endereços das estações de autocarros nestas duas cidades. Muito grato.
