    The best way is by bike or....by car. Not by bus. There no buses to dolmens. Maybe, once in Évora, you can contact Tourist agency Policarpo,(policarpo-viagens.pt/POLICAR... because I think they have a trip to Cromeleque

    All the old city of Évora - the cathedral, roman temple, the chapel of bones - I don´t like, and taste the food, for instance Restaurante 4ª feira. And around Évora, if you have time, please go to Monsaraz.
    Enjoy

    Well, let us understand: I don't like the chapel of bones- I love Évora

    there are 4 megalithic points close to Évora:
    -Almendres' Cromlech and Menhir (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Almend... and
    -Dolmen / Anta do Zambujeiro (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anta_G... are the best known
    -Alto de S. Bento (hill of S. Bento, close to Évora) is a nice place because it was an old megalithic settlement (7000 years) and a good point to look around.
    Nevertheless, there are so many megalithic monuments in Évora district -mostly around Évora, Montemor and Reguengos de Monsaraz.
    (just have a look pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lista_...
    Most part of them are quite far (forget bike) and none of them are served by bus. There are some 4x4 companies making organized tours but best way is rent a car.
    In that case I shall recommend a visit to Escoural cave -not to far and is the only with cave painting (Pictographs) in the country.
    Alentejo is great and you have a bunch of other nice places to visit, Reguengos de Monsaraz, Estremoz, Vila Viçosa, and a bit far Marvão (north) or Mértola (south)

    Restaurants in Évora -"O Grémio", "O Poço", and "A Muralha", are rather good and "Repas and "O Guião" have a good price/quality ratio but there are plenty of small nice places around. You will ear about "Fialho" but although the food is really good it’s to pricy
