      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

    • Bike hire Sesimbra

      by franny5 Online Now Jun 23, 2014 at 4:13 AM

      I want to hire a quality road bike or mountain bike from 12 July to 23rd July.

      Bike Iberia will hire me a bike OK but they need to deliver to a hotel or an address available 9am - 5pm 'there must be a Front Desk open all day long during normal business hours.' they dont deliver to a personal address (I am staying in rented accomodation at a personal address).

      Is there anywhere in Sesimbra that I can use eg. hotel or shop address as a delivery and pick up address?

      Or is there anywhere else that I can hire from?

      Thank you

      Snorkeling in Sesimbra

      by annase Online Now May 29, 2012 at 10:40 AM

      Does anyone know what's snorkeling like in Sesimbra? I suspect the water's rather cool, what about the visibility? Anything interesting there to see underneath the surface?

      Scuba Diving

      by DSwede Online Now Aug 15, 2011 at 4:31 AM

      I've been told that the diving is good in and around Sesimbra.

      Since I'll be working in Sines for a couple days before coming up to Lisbon, I figured it was perfect to stop in Sesimbra.

      If anyone has any recommendations for diving agencies, I'd appreciate it. I'm traveling light so do not have any of my equipment with me.
