    • Seville to Lisboa - Any stops in between?

      by fancylandbubble Online Now Apr 6, 2014 at 12:54 PM

      Hello, I am planning a trip from Morocco to Lisboa in september. So far we decided to pass Seville after coming from Morocco, so my question is if there are any nice places between Seville and Lisboa that we can reach quite easily and directly from Seville. Thank you very much for recommendations and experience reports! Lena

      Beach Accommodation

      by 2AussieGuys Online Now Apr 2, 2014 at 6:44 PM

      I am planning a trip to the Algarve in July, and wanted to stay somewhere thats 4 or 5 stars on or walking distance to a great beach. It has been suggested to be around Praia Grande BUT a similar beach on the coast that is a nice spot for a gay couple would be perfect. Any recommendations would be great!

      Train Station to the Airport

      by travelfrosch Online Now Mar 7, 2014 at 5:37 AM

      Any advice on how best to get from the Faro Train Station to the Airport? The public transit links on the Faro Airport website are dead.

      From what I can guess from my very limited Portuguese, Bus 16 departs occasionally from the main bus terminal to the airport. Is the bus terminal near the train station, and if not, does the bus stop near the train station as well? Thanks!

      My partner and I are going to Faro for 3 nights in December and I have a few questions.

      Is it busy this time of year?
      Are shops, bars, clubs still open and lively?
      What activities do you recommend? I've looked into quad biking, trike experience, Jamanta.

      I would be very grateful for any advice.

    • Altura Portugal - Questions

      by jkaccounts Online Now May 28, 2012 at 4:37 AM

      Hi All

      We are planning a trip to Portugal next month for a week. We are planning to stay in Altura. I have a few questions.

      1. The best way to Travel from Faro Airport to Altura. I see that the EVA bus service operates from the bus station to Altura. What is the best way to get to the bus station from the airport and are the bus services reliable and safe for tourists? I can book a cab to Altura but a return fare is around 70 to 90 Euros. Buses are far lower. Advise needed!!!

      2. What are the places near altura that you would recommend we go to?

      3. Any tips and suggestions on local restaurants/ good places to eat that are not very expensive would be great.

      Looking forward to hearing from all.

      Best regards,
      Jack

    • Faro in December

      by j_j_bean Online Now Sep 21, 2010 at 8:03 AM

      Hi,

      I am thinking of taking a holiday in Faro this December with my father. I have found cheap flights from the 22nd to 29th.

      Would there be much for a tourist to do at that time or would most places be closed?

      Also what area would be the best area to stay in?We would like to be close enough to the city and shops; restaurants etc, but not ages away from the airport.

      Also any hotel/apartment recommendations would be extremely welcome. An apartahotel would probably be more ideal as we require two bedrooms or a one bedroom apartment with a sofabed.

      I would really appreciate any help you may be able to give me.

      Thanks!!!!
