    • Tavira v Ferragudo v Albufeira

      Tavira Sep 10, 2015 at 1:40 AM

      we stayed in Ferragudo August 2015 and found it charming with some very good quality restaurants

      but found it a little too quiet for our 3 teenage children

      Albufeira the year before but found that too touristy and loud in places
      Hoping that tavira is somewhere in the miiddle
      Any opinions really appreciated

    • connections between Boston to Lisbon( beginning of May 2016)

      Lisbon Sep 29, 2015 at 5:26 PM

      American flies thru Philadelphia. United flies thru Newark
      I have always flown through international airports, and never connected in the states.
      1. Which airport is easier to navigate?
      2. Does my luggage check through, or do I need to retrieve it after the 1st flight and then check it to the 2nd leg?
      3. Is 2 hours enough to connect thru both these airports? or should I aim for 3 hours to be safe?
      4. Any pros/cons to either airport/airlines re: being on time. or whatever.

      Lisbon 5 to 6 days what are the must sees in and around?

      Lisbon Sep 30, 2015 at 1:07 PM

      We will be arriving mid morning Lisbon mid November and will have 5 1/2 days further to explore.
      Please provide a guide to pack the most in our short stay.

      1) What are must sees in the city itself?
      2) What destinations outside the city are must visits and how long do we require in each?
      3) Do you recommend staying the night at any of these outlying areas?
      4) Any other tips you can offer

      Thank You

      I live in Sweden and will travel to Elvas in august from madrid or lissabon. I'm wondering if i should book train/bus to Badajoz now on the internet (and in that case, are there some good sites that i can reserve my tickets on?)

      Or is it safe to wait and buy the bus/train tickets on the place when i get to madrid/lissabon?

    • Elvas to Badajoz

      by doversole Online Now Feb 21, 2008 at 7:41 AM

      Has anyone recently managed to get from Elvas to Badajoz in order to connect the trains from Lisbon and onwards from Badajoz to Merida: the train from Lisbon arrives at 1248 Portuguese time and leaves from Badajoz at 1420 Spanish time - so there is only half an hour for the connection. Are there taxis at Elvas station?? Will be grateful for any information. DS 21 Feb 08
