      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

    • Porto to Guimaraes at night?

      by jahoneo Online Now Jun 14, 2011 at 12:25 AM

      Hello dear travelers and locals,

      I was going to Guimaraes for a business trip next month. I was looking through different airlines to purchase a ticket, and the one I liked will arrive at Porto at 23:50 at night. Will I be able to go to Guimaraes at this time by train or bus? What is the operating time of public transports in that area? If anyone could answer, I would be grateful. Thank you.

      Transportation from Porto and "the safety question"

      by nomad7890 Online Now Apr 5, 2009 at 8:21 PM

      Have decided to visit Guimaraes as a side trip from Porto.

      Is it easy to get from Porto to Guimaraes? It appears that the train connections change, so I do not know if there is a better way.

      Once in Guimaraes, is it also a place where tourists get hassled? Is it OK to go as a woman traveling alone using public transportation?

      There is an option of a tour that goes to Braga and Guimaraes (yuk) - but I will consider it if going on my own will be a hassle.

      Any experiences/advise/suggestions?

      Hello friends:

      I'm going to Guimarães from Porto by train next month, and I can't find on the map where the station is; is it far from the city/historic centre?

      Thanks.
