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?

Hi fellas: hope you as always will be helpful. I could not get it anywhere - books, net, etc, I only bother you guys as the last resort.

How do I get from Coimbra to Alcobaca, Batalha, and (hopefully!) Tomar and come back to Coimbra having very limited time? Please help with detailed information, i.e. - with what of those towns is b etter to start and with what to finish? what are the easiest connections/transfers between locations? Bus schedule will be the best response. Please help! I am on a very tight schedule ;-( Thanks!

What problems could I encounter hanging out in Sao Paulo. I always hear a lot of horror stories about Sao Paulo's crime. I am a Black American, do you think I should be worried that I would be targeted, or do you think I can blend in with the crowd, and not worry about what everybody is saying about Sampa.
