    • What tours and levadas should I take?

      Região Autónoma da Madeira May 27, 2015 at 4:21 AM

      Hello,

      I'm spending my summer holiday in Madeira, between 25th of August-01st of September. I read about the tours and levadas and I would like you to give some advice: is it ok/ worth it to make all the full day tours (East, West, North, West)? And what half day levadas would you recommend? Not interested in being an easy path but a beautiful one.

      Many thanks,
      Adriana

    • Recommendations for Coastal town for honeymoon in August?

      Portugal May 29, 2015 at 8:21 PM

      I'm planning part of my honeymoon in Portugal. We will have 3 or 4 nights and can fly in anywhere (coming from Spain)but we will be departing from Lisbon. We were thinking we would like to head to the Algarve because it looks so beautiful but I'm hearing it's very touristy and there is a lot of partying.
      We prefer to beach, shop, eat & drink in lively but not jam-packed places that are beautiful, charming, and offer culture of the area. Ideally we're looking for anywhere within 4 hours or so of Lisbon.

      Thanks for any advice!

      flying into Porto from ponta Delgado and out of Lisbon.

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.

      Chilled out place with surf near Faro: any recommendations?

      Portugal May 13, 2015 at 2:14 PM

      Hi! I am doing a cycling tour through Europe and will fly home from Faro. I am looking for a cool, chilled out, surfy place to stay within about 100km of Faro airport... I will probably be on my own; so would like to relax, unwind, swim, surf a bit and eat in nice restaurants and recover after, hopefully an epic cycle! I am not too keen on full-on tourist towns and would love to be near local people, towns and sights... If you can recommend an actual hotel/rental in the town area, I would greatly appreciate it...

      Simple, clean place, self catering, near enough to the beach and amenities..

       

      Thank you for reading!

      Dave.

      ps: I will be arriving in Faro around the 10th-15th of August...so I am a bit worried that everything will be booked up!

    • Lisbon and day trips

      Lisbon May 2, 2015 at 8:45 AM

      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!
