      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

    • ROME - should I rent a scooter for sightseeing?

      by lkunzman Online Now Feb 10, 2012 at 7:11 AM

      I'm thinking of renting a scooter for 1/2 day in Rome for ease of sightseeing, and I know the drivers can be crazy. I'd probably stay to the side of the road and drive slowly. Does anyone have an opinion or suggestion? Thank you.

    • Keyhole in Rome

      by janislevesque Online Now Sep 29, 2006 at 2:32 PM

      We were wondering who discovered the keyhole in the green door overlooking St. Peters. Was the keyhole put there after the coincidental view? Or did someone discover the keyhole...and when?
