      pdl to Porto

      by EllenH Online Now Jun 18, 2015 at 10:58 PM

      I have 2 nights booked, think I may want more. 5 nights free until 3 nights booked in Lisbon then back to the Azores. I realize asking anyone to tell me what to do in this time is ridiculous, but there are a few on here I really trust....Douro valley. my husband thinks Fatima, I think not, into Porto, out of Lisbon . Like the bike path answer that I cannot find anymore. Open to suggestions, I guess there was a VT meet in close area not too many years ago. A few towns have been mentioned on vt ..Batalha, alcobaca, nazare,obidos,.....I am asking advice.

    • Where should a foodie have dinner in Porto?

      We are in Lisbon, going to Porto tomorrow. I like to find places where the locals eat, which means while Trip Advisor has great reviews, going to the restaurants recommended often means eating with a lot of other American tourists. Any advice on getting good Portuguese food?

    • Best place to park in Porto

      by pmah98 Online Now Mar 22, 2015 at 7:49 AM

      I'm travelling around Portugal this July and want to visit Porto. I'm going to be in my car, and have heard that parking and driving in Porto isn't that easy. I've looked in to parking on one of the streets near the main football stadium but am unsure if this is the best option? Are there any other alternatives that you recommend- I'm looking to spend probably the whole day in the city. Thanks

      Porto - Montreal (2 Stops) - 16 year old minor

      by jgoncalo Online Now Nov 2, 2014 at 3:22 PM

      Hello. I'm flying from Porto to Montreal with 2 stops in Frankfurt and London Heathrow on December 17th. I'm 16 years-old, I have a Portuguese passport and I'm flying all alone! I've never flew alone in a flight with so many stops... the only time I flew alone was from Porto to Paris and it was quite simple (I didn't even need to go through passport control or anything).

      • My flight from Porto to Frankfurt departs at 6AM and arrives at Frankfurt at 09H50 AM (Germany, GMT +1).
      • My second flight, departs from Frankfurt at 11AM and arrives in London at 11H45 AM.
      • My flight which will take me to my final destination departs from London at 1PM and arrives in Montreal at 3H25 PM.

      All the connection flight are made at the same terminal. In Frankfurt it's in Terminal 1 and in London Heathrow it's in Terminal 2 and I only have 1h10-1h15. I'm flying with Lufthansa but London-Montreal is operated by Air Canada. I bought this fligh in a travel agency and I have a Lufthansa frequent flyer card.

      I'm kinda nervous about having to do this, I've been on a flight with stops and connections so I'm a total beginner. Do I have enough time to connect between my flights? Where will I have to show my passport and go through security (since I've been told I don't need to go through customs from Porto to Frankfurt)? What if I lose a connection flight because of a delay or because I didn't have enough time to go through passport control and get to the gate? As a minor I'm quite nervous. Should I warn the flight attendant before I land in case I'm late for the next flight?

      Thanks in advance!

      - 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.
