    • how to travel from city to city or village to village without a car?

      by TerLem2 Online Now Apr 3, 2014 at 10:30 PM

      We will arrive in Lisbon by plane. I know we can take train to Porto, but does train go directly to other towns, like Coimbra, Braga, etc?

      Best places for 20-year old American girls to visit in Porto?

      by KennedyBrown Online Now Oct 1, 2013 at 4:45 PM

      My friend and I are traveling to Porto in July of 2014 from the States and are staying for roughly 3 weeks. I have never been to Portugal and have a few questions:

      1) What are the safest cities to stay in that are close to everything? (Shops, resturaunts, nightclubs, etc)
      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 :)

      My son in law could only drop us off in city of Porto or directly at Porto airport at 8 in the morning. 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? Your suggestions are appreciated Thanks. Bernadette P

      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.

      Hi Porto-Community,
      I would like to use one day of my visit for exploring the hilly landscape in the east at the Duoro. I already did some research, however, i couldn't find any way to get to the east (no train, ...).

      Hope, that you know how to get there and maybe you have some must-see-locations/hiking trails for me.

      Thank you a lot!

      I am going to Porto in September and I would like to visit 2 cellars.
      Which cellars do you recommend. I would like to visit one from a well-known brand and one unknown brand. If possible I would like to have a visit which is not focused on mass tourism.
      Is there a possiblity to visit also the vineyards with a quinta when you are in Porto. Or are these too far from the city, when you don't have a car?

      Thanks in advance for your advice!

      River Douro Day Cruise

      by sandgrounder Online Now Jul 2, 2012 at 4:52 PM

      Whilst staying in Porto my wife and I would like to take a day cruise on the River Douro. From reading other posts it sounds like Douro Azul are the ones to go with. If we were to do one of the longer cruises where you get the train to or from Regua for example would it be better to do the boat cruise upstream and get the train back or is it best to get the train first and then cruise back downstream?
      Also is it necessary to book well in advance or could we book while in Porto the day before?
      Thank you

      Spa with indoor and outdoor pools in or near Porto city.

      by T-and-K Online Now Jun 27, 2012 at 9:13 AM

      Hi all

      Please recommend some nice spa in or near the city of Porto with indoor and outdoor pools, steam rooms and possibility for massages. I've been googling my head off but only seem to find day spa's. The idea is basically to start off the vacation by laying in different pools and having a massage afterwards instead of having treatment sessions in day spa.

      Thanks in advance! =)
