    • Pena to Moors without the Moors

      Sintra Aug 31, 2016 at 5:28 AM

      Hi, we plan on seeing Pena and Quinta da Regaleira, but I read somewhere that there is a nice walking/hiking path from Pena to Moors with views to both of them. If there really is such a path, do I need to go into the castle of the Moors as well when we reach it (we don't plan on paying the fee and going inside) or does the path lead in front of it/near it somewhere? Sorry about the unclear question, but I can't seem to find any further info about that walking trail.

    • 1 week itinerary for portugal help plz!

      Portugal Sep 13, 2016 at 2:58 AM

      HI!

      we are a ~30ish year old couple, traveling to Portugal for 7 days next week (land & depart - Lisbon)
      Its been really hard to figure out what's the best way to go.. we like a bit of urban athmosphere but also nature (and beach) :) , would like to see a lot but not be in a total rush. we will rent a car

      What do you think? should we:
      A. Stay around the Lisbon area and travel a bit to the south for a few days?

      B. Do the highlights from Lisbon heading up north to Porto?
      this is what i had in mind, gathering info from the internet, but i don't know if its realistic:
      -day 1 sintra, sleep in obidos
      - one night coimbra/or parque natural da serra da estrela
      - one night alto douro
      - 2 night porto
      - 2 night lisbon (or stay in lisbon at the beginning then travel up)

      thanksss in advance for your input!!!

      We would like to holiday in the Algarve in 2017 and would appreciate some help. We are looking for a resort that is not overly busy and without the night clubs etc, but has some shops that you can stroll around of an evening. If anyone has been to Es Cana in Ibiza somewhere sililar would be great. We are looking for an all inclusive hotel.

    • Views of Sintra from outside

      Sintra Aug 30, 2016 at 5:24 AM

      Hi, for our day trip to Sintra I've chosen Palacio Pena, Monserrate and Quinta da Regaleira. We don't want to go inside Pena, but want to see the views from the terraces-is there a ticket that includes that but not the interior? Also, we want to see it from such point of view: sintratours.co.uk/wp-content... - is there a walking path that leads to it or something? Where would you get such a view of it?
      I read that Quinta is within walking distance from Sintra, but I can't find info about Monserrat- how do you reach it?

      Sorry about the heap of questions!:)

    • 5 days too much for a solo traveller?

      Lagos Sep 5, 2016 at 5:33 AM

      Hi,
      I'm planning to visit Lagos in December. I'm travelling alone and I don't go out to night clubs or bars.
      I want to go to Lagos and Algarve just to see the beautiful scenery. Now i'm wondering if 5 days might be too much?
      I know it can be quite chilly and rainy so I can't just spend the days laying on the beach.
      I won't have a car, I will walk and take the bus so I believe I will be kinda limited regarding how far away from the center I can go.
      What do you think? Will I get bored?

    • Transportation Lagos-Armacao de Pera-Faro

      Algarve Sep 13, 2016 at 4:42 AM

      Hi! Is there an official website with info about the buses around Algarve or should I trust this one? http://www.algarvebus.info/002e.htm
      I am worried that if it isn't correct and we miss our bus to Faro, there is no alternate transportation from Armacao de Pera. Also, after our boat trip from there, we want to get to Praia da Marinha, can we get a taxi to there and would it be expensive? Can you reccommend a company I can use with a safe mind? In general, transportation without a car seems kinda complicated....

      How to get inside of Charola?

      by Oleg_D. Online Now 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.
      Sincerely,
      Oleg
