      Is it a must to buy a Lisboa card when visiting Lisbon

      Lisbon Jul 1, 2016 at 1:47 AM

      We've all heard of London's oystercard or Hong Kongs octopuscard?

      But is it really necessary for lisbon?

      Its says in Timeout that if you want to use the METRO then you must use a lisboncard. It says when you travel in from the airport you must use a lisboncard.

      Or can you just bu tickets? There is a touristcard? Is this easier? How much is it and can I procure it in the UK before I leave? Does anyone have any webaddresses for the lisboncard?

      advice regarding best use of holiday time

      Portugal Jul 11, 2016 at 3:51 PM

      hi there, I am from Australia and in September 2016 I will have 12 days holiday in Portugal. I will be arriving in and departing from Lisbon airport. Can anyone please give me advice about where to go and what to do? I would like to go to Porto and then spend some time in smaller towns inland. I like history and culture and food. I am not really interested in beaches and nightlife. For this trip I would probably prefer not to spend my time in museums (that's for another trip) and I like to explore towns on foot. I prefer not to move hotels every day but have a minimum of 2 nights in each place. I will be traveling by train and any other public transport.

      Any advice greatly appreciated. I know this is not a long trip but I think with some planning and forethought I can have a wonderful time there. Many thanks

      Hello,
      We are planning to visit Coimbra for a day on Good Friday (29th of March). Will the Old University and other attractions be open? Should we expect anything special due to this holiday? (More crowd or less crowd or closures because of ceremonies, etc.)
      Sorry for my ignorance, but this is not observed in Hungary (only Easter Monday), therefore I am not sure what to expect.
      Thanks in advance

Can I make a stop in Coimbra and take a later train to continue my trip or I can only by separate tickets from Porto to Coimbra and from Coimbra to Porto. Do the tickets have inscribed on them the number of the train so that they are valid only on that specific train number?
