      Ilha das Flores Apr 29, 2015 at 7:35 AM

      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)?

    • Public transport to Lagoa do Fogo

      Ponta Delgada Apr 25, 2015 at 3:22 AM

      Hello,

      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.

      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.

      Chilled out place with surf near Faro: any recommendations?

      Portugal May 13, 2015 at 2:14 PM

      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!

      Dave.

      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!

    • Lisbon and day trips

      Lisbon May 2, 2015 at 8:45 AM

      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!

      How to get inside of Charola?

      by Oleg_D. Online Now Oct 10, 2011 at 5:02 AM

      Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
      A have a question about the access to so called Charola or the altar part of the Convent of Christ in Tomar. When I’m looking at the pictures uploaded by many travelers I see that sometime the doors of Charola itself are closed and you cannot get in. But some pictures are made inside of the Charola that means sometime it is possible to get in. Can anybody tell me is it possible to get in? If yes, than how I can do that? I’m very interested to make pictures of any images (icons, statues, frescoes and etc.) of military Saints such as Saint George, Saint Florian, Saint Sebastian and so on. Any tips where I can find such images in Tomar would be highly appreciated. Those pictures will help me in my study of medieval military history because they are the valuable source on arms and armor, clothing and etc. of appropriate period.
      Thank you in advance for your assistance.
      Sincerely,
      Oleg
