      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

      Anyone been to Terceira recently?

      by diosh Online Now Sep 1, 2009 at 2:59 AM

      We're plotting a secret surprise for my sister's 60th birthday. Our Dad was stationed on the island during the War and we'dlike to go there for sentimental reasons.
      I've found a hotel in Praia and was wondering if anyone has knowledge of it.
      It will be very difficult to get there from UK, but we'll attempt it!It'll be a long flight, stopping off at Lisbon...

      I am planning a trip to Terceira in July 2006. Many of the attractions (Caldeira of Guilherme Moniz, Algar do Carvão, Natal Cave, BISCOITOS) were posted "Under Construction". Does anyone know if these are reopened for the 2006 season ?
