    • Public transport to Lagoa do Fogo

      Ponta Delgada 16 hours ago

      Hello,

      We (2 people in their 20s) will be going to Sao Miguel in a week. We don't have a driving license and want to use public transport as much as possible. I found a lot of interesting places on the bus map but there is one place I can't find - the Lagoa do Fogo. Is there a bus stop within walking distance to it? Even if we have to walk 1 hour that would still bring us closer.

      We will staying at the Bahia Palace in Agua Alta. I read that there's a hiking trail from the hotel to Lagoa do Fogo from there but it takes 4 hours.

      Any help is greatly appreciated.

      Driving from Lisbon to Southern spain on a 9 days trip

      Lisbon Mar 29, 2015 at 8:53 AM

      We are flying to Lisbon and intends to rent a car from Lisbon airport. After 3 days, we will drive to Seville, then to Cordoba,Granada and finally Malaga where we will fly off from Malaga airport.
      1) Will there be any difficult issues we would face if we rent a car from Lisbon to drive into Southern spain?
      2) Is it true that the toll charges in Portugal are very high?
      3) Any advice on hotels we should be staying if we are driving? Is it really very difficult to park if we intend to stay in the city center?
      4) Any recommendation of a reliable car rental company from Lisbon? Does the rented car come with GPS in English language?
      Any other tips/advice on driving from Lisbon to Southern spain is much appreciated.

      Day trips in northern Portugal

      Portugal Mar 31, 2015 at 12:15 PM

      We are planning a trip to Portugal. We will be in the Lisbon/Cascais for most of the time. But we do want to spend a few days in Northern Portugal also. If we decide to spend several days in Porto how easy or difficult will it be to take a day trip Viana do Castelo. We most likely will not be renting a car but want to use public transportation, either a train or a bus.

    • Porto to Guimaraes at night?

      by jahoneo Online Now Jun 14, 2011 at 12:25 AM

      Hello dear travelers and locals,

      I was going to Guimaraes for a business trip next month. I was looking through different airlines to purchase a ticket, and the one I liked will arrive at Porto at 23:50 at night. Will I be able to go to Guimaraes at this time by train or bus? What is the operating time of public transports in that area? If anyone could answer, I would be grateful. Thank you.

      Transportation from Porto and "the safety question"

      by nomad7890 Online Now Apr 5, 2009 at 8:21 PM

      Have decided to visit Guimaraes as a side trip from Porto.

      Is it easy to get from Porto to Guimaraes? It appears that the train connections change, so I do not know if there is a better way.

      Once in Guimaraes, is it also a place where tourists get hassled? Is it OK to go as a woman traveling alone using public transportation?

      There is an option of a tour that goes to Braga and Guimaraes (yuk) - but I will consider it if going on my own will be a hassle.

      Any experiences/advise/suggestions?
