    • Anyone time free tomorrow (tuesday afternoon/evening) in Lisbon?

      Lisbon Dec 15, 2014 at 7:07 AM

      Hi, I'm visiting Lisbon tomorrow, is there anyone who wants to show me around a bit? Not looking for a touristic tour or anything, just to visit some nice places and nice people and have a bite and some drinks :)

      I have a car available and will stay in the Lost Inn Hostel. I'm very passionate about cooking and restaurants so if you feel like going out for a nice dinner I would totally be up for that. I can't afford to pay for everything but a couple of drinks will definitely be on me! I'll be there around 17:00/18:00 local time :)

      About myself: 28, Netherlands, working man, visiting a friend near Faro for a couple of days.

      Let me know if you feel like it!

      Is either of the above hotels anywhere near the Altis Grand? I think the first one was recently renamed the Intercontinental but I don't know what it was called before that.

    • Salamanca to Porto

      Portugal Dec 15, 2014 at 9:09 AM

      I've been researching the train and bus options to get from Salamanca to Porto. It seems that the train requires a transfer and the bus (ALSA) only has one departure a day. Any other options to get from one city to the other?
      Thank you.

    • Information required for this city

      Lisbon Dec 4, 2014 at 9:11 AM

      I last visited Lisbon over 30 years ago so it would have changed dramatically.
      1. I would like to get from the airport to a hotel in Lisbon city centre by train or bus. Which one do you recommend and what are the costs?
      2. I am looking for a decent three star hotel, comfortable but as we will be out and about all the time a clean hotel for sleeping. Can you recommend a reasonably priced one that enable my wife and I to get around.
      3. I have heard that the areas across the Tagus are dirty and rundown as well as the ferries. Is this the case or not? I remember going across the river and eating at some very nice restaurants. Is it recommended to visit this area or not?
      4. I am taking the overnight train from Lisbon to Madrid. How far is the main train station from the city centre?
      5. When is the best time to book this train and what are the costs of tickets? We will be visiting Lisbon inlate September 2015.

    • Porto Santo Beach in July

      by christine641960 Online Now Jan 31, 2008 at 2:54 AM

      This maybe a silly question but; -
      We were thinking of going to Porto Santo for the 1st week in July. How busy do the beaches get as I have been told that the Portugese take advantage of this lovely island at this time of year. Being a small Island I wasnt sure.
