      OK, so is Portugal a poor choice for a honeymoon destination if I'm afraid of cockroaches?

      Lisbon Sep 3, 2014 at 1:39 PM

      Hi guys,
      Once again, my phobia is interfering with my travel planning. :(
      Yes, I know cockroaches can't directly hurt me but there's no talking me out of my fear. I wish there was!
      So I'm asking you this:
      Are cockroaches a problem everywhere around Portugal or primarily in The Algarve?
      Are they inside cockroaches, outside ("palmetto bugs") or both? Are they only outside in some places like The Algarve?
      Thank you so much. I'm planning our honeymoon for late January 2015 and don't want it to be ruined by my stressing out over the presence of bugs!
      Cheers

    • Santa Justa Lift

      Lisbon Jul 31, 2014 at 6:34 AM

      Hello. Curious about the Santa Justa elevator - exactly where do you enter? Is there a particular time to go to avoid a line? Will the fact that we're there on the Feast of Assumption mean it might be more crowded than usual? I've heard it may be possible to get on it up top and ride down from near the Carmo Convent rather than just up. Is this true? Would I be able to avoid a long line if I do that? Thanks for any help you can give me. I will have a 24 hour ticket that I will be using, but if the line is too terribly long I may just bag the whole idea of riding it. I know there is at least one miradouro that shows a similar view, but the Santa Justa elevator looks interesting for photography since it's so close to Carmo Convent. (Just how long does it take for a line to disappear and a person to get on the elevator, anyway? Can anyone venture a guess? How many people can it hold at a time, and how many people might be waiting on a weekend or holiday day in August, other than "a lot"?!)

    • Where to stay?

      Lisbon Jul 26, 2014 at 12:18 AM

      Hi, myself and some of my girlfriends are planning on coming to Lisbon in February for my 30th. I'm not sure where to stay, though - I've found a really nice apartment in Bairro Alto but I'm very put off by the noise I've been reading about - we want to go out and enjoy ourselves in the evenings, but I like peace and quiet at night when I'm sleeping! Where would you recommend we stay? Baixa? Somewhere else? Or is the noise overrated?

    • 7 Colinas travel card

      Lisbon Jul 25, 2014 at 6:47 AM

      Hi
      I would like to know as I will be in Lisbon for 1 week, if the Colinas card is my best option, I will be hoping to use most of the transport that is available. I just wanted to know if I can put the 7 days on the card at the beginning so it is more convenient for checking through scanners etc or is there a better travel pass for this. I have read about a zapping system but I am not quite sure how it works?, do I have to keep checking this in case it has run out of money?, would not want to be stuck while traveling this way. Any help would be much appreciated.

      Thanks

    • Way to determine tram/bus stops

      Lisbon Jul 21, 2014 at 9:14 AM

      I was curious to find out if anyone knows of a web site that shows exactly where the tram 28 and tram 15 stops. I've looked at the Carris description of the stops, but they only go so far in giving me the exact information I need to determine how to navigate to a particular place once I get off the tram (or bus, if that's what I'm taking). I've started using the routing system on Carris (forget what it's called) and that also helps me a bit, but I would love to find a map that shows the exact tram (and bus stops) if possible. For major places, like Rossio, the spider maps help, but I don't think there are spider maps for each place I want to go.

      I'm not very good at navigating in a new city, so I need all the help I can get. I also like to have my route somewhat planned out ahead of time, to save time and frustration, and lessen the chances of being pickpocketed, which I hear can especially be a problem around certain trams and locations in Lisbon. There really is no way to look less touristy, non-European or younger, and I can't choose to go at any other time than summer.

      Obrigada/thanks!

      Hi all.

      Planning my wedding in Sintra next September. I'm trying to find a caterer in the area who could provide food for a BBQ for the day after the wedding. The size of the group would be roughly 60 people.

      Also if anybody knew of a great local musician suitable for the wedding ceremony and cocktail reception that would be awesome.

    • Holiday and Elevador Gloria

      Lisbon Jul 8, 2014 at 12:03 PM

      I will be in Lisbon on the Feast of Assumption (Friday Aug. 15), staying near the Elevador do Gloria. I want to ride the elevador, but am a little confused as to whether this means the elevador will be closed at certain times that day or night. Here is what Carris' web site says (English page), but I'm still confused:

      Monday to Thursday (except holiday eve): 7:00 a.m. to 11:55 p.m.
      Friday (except holiday) and holiday eve´s (Monday to Thursday): 7:00 a.m. to 00:25 a.m.
      Saturday (except holiday): 8:30 a.m. to 00:20 a.m.
      Sunday and holiday´s (except holiday eve): 9:00 a.m. to 11:55 p.m.
      Sunday (if holiday eve): 9:00 a.m. to 00:25 a.m.

      For one thing, I'm not sure how to interpret "holiday eve" and understand how it applies to me. I will get to Lisbon Thursday morning and leave Saturday afternoon. I'm assuming that on Friday, if Feast of Assumption is a major holiday in Portugal, the elevador runs from 9:00 to almost midnight, I guess on the Thursday before, it runs from 7:00 to almost midnight. Are these assumptions correct?

    • Baixa/Chiado Metro Question

      Lisbon Jul 7, 2014 at 6:26 PM

      Since I've gotten great info on here, I thought I'd ask some more questions. I'm a little confused as to where the Baixa/Chiado metro stations are. I have a map which shows both of them, so I know they are close together, except one is farther east. However I can't figure out is which one is the azul line and which one is the green (verde? sorry; can't remember) line. Also, which one will get me to the Armazens do Chiado Mall? Are the two stations or entrances connected by a tunnel? Which is the one that has all the gorgeous purple lights?

      Obrigada.
