      Quiet, historic and picturesque portugal

      Portugal 1 hours ago

      I am organising a holiday in a villa for around 12 adults of retirement age but who are all very active. I do not know Portugal at all, so advice on which would be the best locations for our group would be much appreciated. One of the group would like to be in reach of Lisbon, the rest of us would like a semi rural location with walks, a nearby village, and scenery the artists amongst us can paint. Sea views, historic sights, places to cycle and nearby restaurants are on the list of attractions we are looking for.

      Many thanks

      Looking for good ideas

      Lisbon Jul 22, 2016 at 12:41 AM

      Hi
      We are celebrating my parents in laws 50 years wedding anniversary in Lisboa and want to surprice them with a special experience. Anyone have a good idea of what to do? They are not very active people but we still would like to take them somewhere either a different place to see or a restaurant which is special and is both a dinner and experience, this dosen´t mean that gourmet food, but maybe a special place or something.
      Any idea is welcome.
      Thanks :-)

      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 to all from Türkiye. :) We will visit Lisbon between the dates 24 january-2 february . we want to visit Fatima on 27th of January.My first question is 'is it possible to spare half day to visit Fatima and then go on to Coimbra and after walking around and seeing the university to go to Porto?' We'll stay in Porto one night and on the 28th we plan to see Porto and in the evening go back to Lisbon by rede expressos bus.Do you think that this plan is suitable for us to visit these 3 cities in two-day time?

      Lisbon to Fatima/Santeram to Santiago Compostela

      Fátima Jan 5, 2014 at 7:33 AM

      4 people travelling together, arriving Lisbon by air in late May. I wonder we should drive rather than by bus for the convenience and flexibility. I have researched and aware of the buses from Lisbon to Fatima, Fatima to Santeram, and Fatima to Santiago. The estimated total bus fares is about 80+ euro including a round trip between Fatima and Santarem, and Lisbon airport to city. We would have to pay more for a car for sure.

      If we drive, we will probably have to return the car off in Oporto and take a bus across to avoid the excessive one-way drop charge, or to drive to Santiago and back to Oporto to return the car. We can fly out of Santiago or Oporto to Madrid or Barcelona.

      Is it safe to drive in Portugal and across to Santiago? I read much about the high speed drivers in Portugal.

      Thanks in advance!

      Specific Directions Please-- Aljustrel, Valinos, Loca Da Anjo + Via Sacra

      Fátima Jul 17, 2012 at 3:54 PM

      Hello everyone.
      My friends and I are driving to Fatima next month.
      Aside from the main shrine and chapel, we would like to visit
      Aljustrel, Valinhos, and Loca da Anjo to see the homes of Franciso and Jacinta,and Lucia, and the museum (in Aljustreal) monuments/scuptures (in Valinhos and Loca da Anjo) among others. All that I could find is that it is within 3 KM of the main shrine; somewhere near the south rotunda (de Santa Teresa).

      Where exactly are these places? Are they three different places and far from each other? Does anyone have an exact address, name of a street, or specific directions so we can drive to it?

      I also read there is a "little train" that can take us there. Is there a train schedule for this?

      Lastly: the Via Sacra. 14/15 stations of the cross (+ Ressurection) that starts near Aljustrel/south Rotunda de Santa Teresa, and ends in the Calvary Shrine. It is laid out in the "path" that the shepherds took from Aljustrel to Cova De Iria so I am assuming you cannot drive along this route. Question: How far is the last station/Calvary from the main Basilica, i.e. can you easily walk to it from the main Basilica?

      Thank you for your anticipated replies.

      How to get inside of Charola?

      Tomar 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.
