    • staying near university area

      Lisbon Feb 13, 2015 at 11:19 AM

      Hi all!
      Going to study at University of Lisbon later this year, and trying to figure out where to live. Does anyone know the area of Cidade Universitaria? Is it a nice area to live? Or, are there other other neighborhoods that are not far from the university (walking distance or short commute) that are preferable?

      Hotels in Lisbon

      Lisbon 1 hours ago

      Was looking for a hotel for at least 3 nights in Lisbon at the end of May. I noticed the Corinthia Hotel Lisbon on line and looked quite nice. However it looked like it may be away from the sights. Don't mind walking or taking local transportation. Maybe there are others closer to the action (sights).
      If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate them. In the area of 150 E per night would be good.. That's around 200$ Canadian.

      again thanks

      painting workshops?

      Lisbon Feb 10, 2015 at 4:14 PM

      I am planning a budget trip to Lisbon late august into september. I am an hobby-ist painter and would like to try and join a painting class or workshop for starting painters. Have surfed the net for information, and most workshops I found are expensive and all inclusive vacations. Is there an art school or some kind of center that has like summer classes or introduction classes for locals, and where foreigners would be welcome to join? I paint with water colours and acrylic colors but would appreciate some insight into using other mediums like charcoal, crayons, chalk. Since I do not read portuguese well, it is hard to search effectively.

    • Cascais hotel suggestion?

      by x07afb Online Now Jul 5, 2011 at 2:33 PM

      My wife and I are planning a trip to Cascais for a couple of days as part of a trip to Portugal in September. I am trying to book a hotel in the area that will meet all of our needs. Particularly, could anyone recommend a hotel that is firmly situated close to the beach, but is also walking distance from a nice selection of restaurants? One hotel that I was looking at which looks quite nice is Hotel Cascais Miragem. The reviews are quite favourable, and I was just wondering if anyone in this group had any experiences there?

      Also, would it be possible to use Cascais as a base for Lisbon? If we enjoy the feel of Cascais, I’m thinking it might be nice to come back there in the evenings if we decide to make one or two daytrips to Lisbon. I’m just wondering if anyone else has tried this plan? Thanks in advance.

    • Life in Cascais for a Japanese-American Family

      by buckrodgers Online Now Sep 17, 2010 at 12:22 PM

      I was curious what life in Cascais might be like for a Japanese-American family (elderly mother, young grandson)?

      Are the people in this area quite tolerant, without any 'fringe groups' who may be condescending/hostile towards those of a different ethnic group? I've learned that while the majority of people are usually open-minded, it only takes a small group (e.g. xenophobes/skinheads) to ruin it.

      I've read that there are many tourists and a large ex-pat population here, so it sounds like a fairly relaxed, cosmopolitan area, but any thoughts/personal observations would be appreciated.

      I'd also appreciate any general observations on what life in Cascais is like for retirees.

      Thank you.

      Safe place to park a car

      by matcrazy1 Online Now May 14, 2009 at 2:35 PM

      Where to park a car for 4 days/nights in Cascais? Are there any safe underground parkings in the area? How much is it? Well, the parking may be locked/closed at night - I am not going to use my car during my stay in Cascais.

      Next Wednesday my wife Urszula (matcrazy0) and I start fantastic trip (I can't wait :-) from Poland to Euromeet in Cascais. Surely, as always, we will travel by car. We are going to visit northern Spain and Portugal on the way there and back (+ maybe Bordeaux, Biarritz and generally Burgundy in France). It's 3400 km one way! Unfortunatelly our centrally located hotel in Cascais (Pergola House) doesn't guarantee any parking place. Hmm... two weeks ago I parked my car overnight in northern France on a public paid parking and I (and 7 other cars) had flat tires in the morning. That's why I ask (being warned of car burglaries as well) and I worry about it.

      Greetings and hugs,
