      Travelling to Lisbon with children in April

      Portugal Jan 7, 2017 at 6:54 PM

      My last attempt to go to Lisbon was in 2005, with my ageing mother. I had collected great tips from reading fellow VT'ers tips and assembled an array of ideas. The day before departure my mother keeled over with a stroke and did not regained sufficient strength to travel anymore. So now with the kids, trying again:
      Question 1: 3 things to do with children that need to be challenged, not entertained, aged 8-11 in Lisbon?
      Question 2: choice of 3 places to stay (towns, not necessarily hotels) on the Algarve coast between the Spanish border and the south-west cape, keeping kids in mind?

      - Yes, indeed, I am reading all relevant info on the Portugal VT pages, but a little help would be good to cut through the jungle...

      Thank you for any responses to what is probably one of my last questions before VT closes down...

      10 Day Trip - Algarve & Seville

      Algarve Dec 22, 2016 at 9:20 AM

      My wife and I are spending 10 days in the Algarve area next April. We fly in and out of Faro and will be picking up and dropping off our hire car in that location. I'm thinking of staying in three or four different locations and would like to do a circular tour in our hire car. It seems sensible to take in Seville. Any ideas for towns where a couple of nights would be a pleasant experience? Our interests are history, culture and moderate walking. Phil C

      Looking for a ride to Boom Festival (preferably from Amsterdam) !

      Hello!

      I am going to Boom Festival and I'm looking for a ride, because I think it's more fun than flying. Do you maybe have an empty seat and want to fill it up? If there would be space for my guitar, that would be a big bonus, but doesn't have to :).

      Thanks to those who responded to my first inquiry about going north or south. My colleague and I are heading north however I need some advice about the suggested iternerary below.
      Arrive in Lisbon (Sat.) and take train to Coimbra, stay at Hotel Astoria.
      Next day train up to Porto, find a day boat trip to Pinhao, try to stay at Vintage House Question: In case they are booked, are there other alternatives?
      Take riverside train back to Porto on Monday (stay one night) Question: Should we try to make it up to the Minho area? We have to be back in Lisbon Tuesday night.
      Your trusted travel advice is much appreciated.
