    • 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

      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

    • 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.

    • Marvao to Madrid

      by albertarose Online Now Apr 6, 2015 at 2:19 PM

      We are taking a tour which will leave us in Marvao. What is the best way to get from there to Madrid? Is it possible by public transportation? Can cars rented in Portugal be taken into Spain?

    • Parking in Marvao

      by rowantree Online Now Oct 24, 2013 at 5:40 AM

      What a lovely place! The only sad thing was that we seemed to have been served with a parking fine of 60 euros for 'parking at a bus stop' on the day in September when we visited. The friends whose car we were using told us of this about a month after we had been in Marvao. We had parked in a designated car parking place off the stretch of road just before the final u-bend up to the gates of the town. There were no signs saying we could not park there and we did not receive a notice on the car on the day.
      Of course it is impossible to appeal from abroad, especially as we cannot put our friends to that hassle.
      We know that local government is strapped for cash - but is it wise to hammer visitors to top tourist places?
