      by babyspike1 Online Now 2 hours ago

      My mother was born in Vila Nova de Gaia. I would like to ride through the area where she was born, and only have limited free time in Porto. What would a taxi cost for a ride from the Mercurio Centro Hotel near Praca de Batalha in Porto to the Gervide section of Oliveira do Douro in Vila Nova de Gaia and back again?

    • Lactose and gluten-free food

      by jdetobel Online Now Jun 3, 2014 at 3:28 AM


      I want to surprise my girlfriend with a trip to Porto. Since she cannot eat lactose or gluten and neither of us knows Portuguese I wondered if:
      - restaurant personnel will understand that we are looking for the lactose and gluten-free food on the menu if we explain in English,
      - there are restaurants that promote the availability of lactose and gluten-free food.

      Thanks for advice!

      2) Where do you find 20-25 year olds on weekends? (Nightclubs, bars, etc)
      3) What are some mandatory things we must see as tourists?
      4) What are some other things I should know about visiting Porto?

      Car rentals - Automatic!

      by AlohaLinda Online Now Sep 12, 2013 at 5:34 AM

      I have been traveling Portugal by Train,bus,boat and foot and now would like to rent a car. I have found only 1 site offering automatic car rentals, and the rates change from 35E to 105E!!! Any suggestions? I would prefer to drive to see this beautiful countryside. Looking to do a one day drive tomorrow. If that does not work, any other suggestions?
      I know the river boats offer tours ... but I would like something less touristy.

      I have used many suggestions by VT members and have been so happy with everyones recommendations :)

Our flight from Porto to Spain is at 4:15 p.m. What would you advice us to do: stay in Porto and go around city (with our luggage) or be early at the airport and wait for 8 hrs and do what?

      Mosteiro de Leça do Balio, working hours

      by Oleg_D. Online Now Apr 8, 2013 at 3:22 AM

      Dear Colleagues, sear travelers,

      I would like to specify the working hours of Mosteiro de Leça do Balio. According to the schedule I got from internet it works as follows:

      Quarta a domingo das 09h00 às 12h00 e das 14h00 às 17h00 .

      What does it mean? Does that mean that Monastery is open from Wednesday through Sunday, from 09h00 till 12h00 and from 14h00 till 17h00. I’m going to visit that place on Saturday morning. Since I will be walking to Santiago de Compostela and passing by that monastery it is very important to be there at proper time.

      Thank you in advance about any information about that monastery and its working hours.
