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?

    • Sintra Caterer and Musician

      Sintra Jul 18, 2014 at 11:41 AM

      Hi all.

      Planning my wedding in Sintra next September. I'm trying to find a caterer in the area who could provide food for a BBQ for the day after the wedding. The size of the group would be roughly 60 people.

      Also if anybody knew of a great local musician suitable for the wedding ceremony and cocktail reception that would be awesome.

      Thanks so much!

    • Holiday and Elevador Gloria

      Lisbon Jul 8, 2014 at 12:03 PM

      I will be in Lisbon on the Feast of Assumption (Friday Aug. 15), staying near the Elevador do Gloria. I want to ride the elevador, but am a little confused as to whether this means the elevador will be closed at certain times that day or night. Here is what Carris' web site says (English page), but I'm still confused:

      Monday to Thursday (except holiday eve): 7:00 a.m. to 11:55 p.m.
      Friday (except holiday) and holiday eve´s (Monday to Thursday): 7:00 a.m. to 00:25 a.m.
      Saturday (except holiday): 8:30 a.m. to 00:20 a.m.
      Sunday and holiday´s (except holiday eve): 9:00 a.m. to 11:55 p.m.
      Sunday (if holiday eve): 9:00 a.m. to 00:25 a.m.

      For one thing, I'm not sure how to interpret "holiday eve" and understand how it applies to me. I will get to Lisbon Thursday morning and leave Saturday afternoon. I'm assuming that on Friday, if Feast of Assumption is a major holiday in Portugal, the elevador runs from 9:00 to almost midnight, I guess on the Thursday before, it runs from 7:00 to almost midnight. Are these assumptions correct?

    • Way to determine tram/bus stops

      Lisbon Yesterday

      I was curious to find out if anyone knows of a web site that shows exactly where the tram 28 and tram 15 stops. I've looked at the Carris description of the stops, but they only go so far in giving me the exact information I need to determine how to navigate to a particular place once I get off the tram (or bus, if that's what I'm taking). I've started using the routing system on Carris (forget what it's called) and that also helps me a bit, but I would love to find a map that shows the exact tram (and bus stops) if possible. For major places, like Rossio, the spider maps help, but I don't think there are spider maps for each place I want to go.

      I'm not very good at navigating in a new city, so I need all the help I can get. I also like to have my route somewhat planned out ahead of time, to save time and frustration, and lessen the chances of being pickpocketed, which I hear can especially be a problem around certain trams and locations in Lisbon. There really is no way to look less touristy, non-European or younger, and I can't choose to go at any other time than summer.

      Obrigada/thanks!

    • Lisbon Questions

      Portugal Jul 20, 2014 at 8:30 AM

      I am having trouble finding out what the cost is to visit Lisboa's Museu Militar near Santa Apolonia. Does anyone know?

      Also, would anyone happen to know about how much time it would take to get up to the Feira Ladra on Saturday from the cruise ship terminal in Sta Apolonia? I know it would be a twisty, possibly frustrating route, but at least the Panteo dome could probably be used to help get a person there. Also, if you're up at the Feira, is it possible to see the top of a cruise ship docked at Sta Apolonia? If not, do you think taxis would be available anywhere near there, and where? About how much would a taxi charge (or should a taxi charge?) between those two points. Will a taxi driver at the cruise dock terminal even go up there? In some cities, the ones at the dock tend to be very picky, as they want to take cruisers for longer runs, or tours of the city.

    • Holiday and Elevador Gloria

      Lisbon Jul 8, 2014 at 12:03 PM

      I will be in Lisbon on the Feast of Assumption (Friday Aug. 15), staying near the Elevador do Gloria. I want to ride the elevador, but am a little confused as to whether this means the elevador will be closed at certain times that day or night. Here is what Carris' web site says (English page), but I'm still confused:

      Monday to Thursday (except holiday eve): 7:00 a.m. to 11:55 p.m.
      Friday (except holiday) and holiday eve´s (Monday to Thursday): 7:00 a.m. to 00:25 a.m.
      Saturday (except holiday): 8:30 a.m. to 00:20 a.m.
      Sunday and holiday´s (except holiday eve): 9:00 a.m. to 11:55 p.m.
      Sunday (if holiday eve): 9:00 a.m. to 00:25 a.m.

      For one thing, I'm not sure how to interpret "holiday eve" and understand how it applies to me. I will get to Lisbon Thursday morning and leave Saturday afternoon. I'm assuming that on Friday, if Feast of Assumption is a major holiday in Portugal, the elevador runs from 9:00 to almost midnight, I guess on the Thursday before, it runs from 7:00 to almost midnight. Are these assumptions correct?
