      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?
      Thanks!

      Apologies if I am duplicating the question - had trouble registering. Arriving Funchal 25th Feb. and forecast not good. Should we pack jeans and jumpers or lightweight trousers and tee shirts? Not much space in Easyjet hand luggage with husband's size 12 trainers. Dress/skirt for evening hotel dinner? Any advice much appreciated.

      Worried about Albufeira

      Algarve Feb 25, 2015 at 2:45 PM

      Next month I'll be going to Albufeira with my dad for a week, but we kind of rushed the booking. Having looked at it properly, I'm now worried it won't be suitable with all its nightclubs, bars and English pubs as we want to experience a bit of the Portuguese culture (whilst also enjoying some sun and the beach), not the Portuguese version of Magaluf or Benidorm. I hope I'm wrong though! Please help!

      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.

      Transportation from Lisbon to Santiago de Compostela

      Portugal Feb 6, 2015 at 11:51 AM

      Starting to plan my trip to Portugal. At the end of my group trip, I'll want to get from Lisbon to Santiago de Compostela. My husband will be there after finishing the Camino.

      I prefer a daytime train ride, if there's a direct one without having to carry my suitcase at a transfer station. I saw a website for a bus, 6.5 hours. That's OK, but I like trains better.

      visit on Good Friday

      by mediamind Online Now Mar 16, 2013 at 7:39 PM

      Hello,
      We are planning to visit Coimbra for a day on Good Friday (29th of March). Will the Old University and other attractions be open? Should we expect anything special due to this holiday? (More crowd or less crowd or closures because of ceremonies, etc.)
      Sorry for my ignorance, but this is not observed in Hungary (only Easter Monday), therefore I am not sure what to expect.
      Thanks in advance

      Can you help me to find out if in Coimbra or Coimbra B stations are available services for leaving luggage for some hours whilest you visist the city?
      I would need also to know if train tickets allow you to make stops on your route. For example I come from Porto and go to Lisbon. Can I make a stop in Coimbra and take a later train to continue my trip or I can only by separate tickets from Porto to Coimbra and from Coimbra to Porto. Do the tickets have inscribed on them the number of the train so that they are valid only on that specific train number?
