I'm planning to visit Lisbon , and I'd like to try the Zipline connects Spain and Portugal from Alcoutim to the other side of the river to Spain.
So anybody knows how to reach there to Alcoutim ? and if anyone also knows anything about that zipline connecting them.
Thanks in advance :)
Hi! I am doing a cycling tour through Europe and will fly home from Faro. I am looking for a cool, chilled out, surfy place to stay within about 100km of Faro airport... I will probably be on my own; so would like to relax, unwind, swim, surf a bit and eat in nice restaurants and recover after, hopefully an epic cycle! I am not too keen on full-on tourist towns and would love to be near local people, towns and sights... If you can recommend an actual hotel/rental in the town area, I would greatly appreciate it...
Simple, clean place, self catering, near enough to the beach and amenities..
Thank you for reading!
ps: I will be arriving in Faro around the 10th-15th of August...so I am a bit worried that everything will be booked up!
Which restaurant would you recommend near the Oceanario?
We are a group of 25 attending a medical conference, and I´m responsible for finding a good restaurant on the Sunday June 15th
Hanne from Oslo,Norway
Could anyone advise me please when exactly this event takes place and how I can book from UK?
My name is Irina Kostareva, I'm editor of the Russian travel magazine "Afisha World". Now we are making a list of interesting places in Lisbon from locals. I think you have a favorite place in the city. Could you tell me about only one your favorite place in Lisbon? I need some places (one place from one person) as museums, shops, cafes, parks…
flying into Porto from ponta Delgado and out of Lisbon. I already have the last 3 nights booked in Lisbon at grapes and bites ( pretty excited) planning on a couple nights in Porto. have books, have internet, have info on Douro valley stuff, but not sure how to spend those days in between. no car here, have one for five days on sau Miguel. I really do not think after the Azores we need beach stuff. (we tend to like the warm water anyway) wine and port, well yes. history and ruins, yes. beautiful scenery..yes. organized tours not so much unless very low key. Anthony bourdain about to come on tv on Lisbon! yes I know 1000 people have pages on Portugal. most of all vt pages are boring facts I can get out of a book. I am sure there are great ones but not necessarily the top ones or what I want.the questions actually gave me the most honest answers.
Can anyone recommend a nice upmarket bar/restaurant to celebrate my 40th birthday? thanks
I'm coming to Lisbon in mid June. I heard that Lisbon is the most beautiful city, but I also want to see other places in Portugal.
My flight is to Lisbon and I'll be landing at 19:30 PM, so I'm thinking to stay in Lisbon for this night. and after I have 7 full days, so this is my plan, tell me if it's good or should I change anything:
Day 1 - train from Lisbon-oriente in the morning to Porto (if I take the 7:00 AM train or even 6:09 is it safe to walk alone to oriente?) and staying at a hotel in Porto for the night.
Day 2 - A bit more of Porto, and then a train to aveiro (I was in Venice, they say it's "little venice") and after another train to Lisbon. from now on each day I stay in Lisbon for the nights.
Day 3 - exploring Lisbon
Day 4 - exploring Lisbon
Day 5 - train to Sintra, cabo da roca and Cascais (can I combine all 3 or even add estoril on the same day??)
Day 6 - train to Obidos and back to Lisbon
Day 7 - Another day in Lisbon
Is that doable and a good plan?? Are the trains cheap (for example, how much would it cost to go from Lisbon to Porto both ways?) Is there a 10 strip card or anything to make it cheaper?
Also, I understand that Bairro Alto is the place in Lisbon for the nights. Do you think that it's better to search an hotel there or is it far from center? I saw a cheap hotel in Baixa district... is it center/safe area? Can I go from there to Bairro Alto by walk each night?
Looking for your answers, Thanks in advance!
Is it ok to go on trekking on the Flores Island just by yourself (we are 2 friends) or is it advisable to go on with organized programs (if there are any)?
We are going on hen do I'm wanting to know if anyone can recommend male strip clubs things to do etc
If I'm visiting Lisbon in June, where would it be a nice place to go to the beach, and how? thanks in advance :)
Anyone got a taxi number they'd recommend in Cabanas de Tavira. Also, any idea the cost of taxi to/from Tavira to Cabanas?
People talk that Portugal has a lot of thieves who can rob you anywhere.
Is that something might have changed to ensure safety for tourists?
We (2 people in their 20s) will be going to Sao Miguel in a week. We don't have a driving license and want to use public transport as much as possible. I found a lot of interesting places on the bus map but there is one place I can't find - the Lagoa do Fogo. Is there a bus stop within walking distance to it? Even if we have to walk 1 hour that would still bring us closer.
We will staying at the Bahia Palace in Agua Alta. I read that there's a hiking trail from the hotel to Lagoa do Fogo from there but it takes 4 hours.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Is there a bus service between Quiaios and Figueira de Foz?
We are looking at taking the metro E line to the train station. What is the overall experience taking this metro? Are there many stairs, or is it fairly easy to get to and from the metro?
Is there a rail station in Estremoz? I am having difficulty finding Estremoz as a station on the EuroRailway web site.
Can you advise please how much it cost to use the boat to cross from Vila nova de Gaia, can you buy it combined with bus passes?
thanks in Advance!

As the organizer of a small family reunion trip (9 people; all around sixty years) I was thinking of planning a trip on Wednesday 22 April. Leaving Porto in the morning by train we would arrive late morning in Regua. We would like to travel back by boat - preferably a small /private boat - to Porto. Is this a good plan? What are the options and costs?
Your help would be very much appreciated. Kindest regard, Joseph.
We are taking a tour which will leave us in Marvao. What is the best way to get from there to Madrid? Is it possible by public transportation? Can cars rented in Portugal be taken into Spain?
Thinking of visiting the Algarve later this year. We love to do naturist walks along the beaches, cliff tops. Can suggestions be made of the best places, please.
Hi, may I know if there are any cafe/hotel available for luggage storage for a few hours, so that I can travel around the city for an afternoon? Thank you.
We are planning a trip to Portugal. We will be in the Lisbon/Cascais for most of the time. But we do want to spend a few days in Northern Portugal also. If we decide to spend several days in Porto how easy or difficult will it be to take a day trip Viana do Castelo. We most likely will not be renting a car but want to use public transportation, either a train or a bus.
We are flying to Lisbon and intends to rent a car from Lisbon airport. After 3 days, we will drive to Seville, then to Cordoba,Granada and finally Malaga where we will fly off from Malaga airport.
1) Will there be any difficult issues we would face if we rent a car from Lisbon to drive into Southern spain?
2) Is it true that the toll charges in Portugal are very high?
3) Any advice on hotels we should be staying if we are driving? Is it really very difficult to park if we intend to stay in the city center?
4) Any recommendation of a reliable car rental company from Lisbon? Does the rented car come with GPS in English language?
Any other tips/advice on driving from Lisbon to Southern spain is much appreciated.

What to do & not do in a 3 day visit to Lisboa?
We are considering a property near central Cascais for five nights in September, but it does not have parking. The owner says public parking is available all around the property. I'm a bit nervous about security and availability and cost too. Can someone please give me some advise? Thank you.
We're heading to Cabanas de Tavira for a week end of May and like to walk. I know that we can walk from there to Tavira. I'm wondering if there are any other coastal walks from Cabanas as we won't have a car. I know that at the end of ria Formosa just as it turns up onto ria Fortaleza there's what looks like a dirt track coastal walk through trees. Any one know if its a circular route back to Cabanas or of any other good walks locally?
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
