I just came back from albufeira, I had bought all nice souvenirs from the shop near the escalators near Praia pescadores. Picture frames, wooden light houses. All for my kids. Please tell me there is a shop that sells it online that I could buy from?!!! This is heartbreaking! I had lost the whole bag of souvenirs.
We are hoping to do a day trip to Freeport outlet centre, taking the ferry across from terreiro do paco and coming back by bus over the vasco de gama bridge. However i am having a lot of difficulty working out the TST schedule. Can anyone help. Which bus will take us from the ferry at Montijo to the beach at Samouco to see the flamingos. Which stop would it be best to get out. Then we want to get a bus on to Freeport outlet shopping and finally take a bus over the bridge to Gare Oriente. My plan is to take the 412 from the ferry to Samouco and then the 431 from Samouco to Freeport and on to Gare Oriente. Has anyone a better or simpler plan.
We are flying from Seville to Lyon in mid September but the flight takes us into Lisbon from Seville, then out to Lyons. What could we/should we do to make one day/night in Lisbon memorable? We like art, food, scenery, wine, literature, people. Not really sporty. Any hotel suggestions welcome also.
Hi All, I am planning my trip to Portugal in Oct. I want to take the train from Porto to Sintra/Cascais and stay there for 2 days. Then I will leave for Lagos or Faro by train again. I have checked the websites and find that there are no direct train from Porto to Sintra/Cascais (need to change stations), though the websites can still show the itinerary. I wonder if this route is workable or are there any other alternatives?
Thanks in advance.
My wife and I who are in our 50s will be visiting Lisbon in August for 5 days. We have booked a place which is about 4 minutes walk from Martim Moniz. The place is located between the neighborhood Baixa and Mouraria. We would like to know if this area is safe to walk at night? Also any security tips to make our stay nice will be greatly appreciated.
I am organising a holiday in a villa for around 12 adults of retirement age but who are all very active. I do not know Portugal at all, so advice on which would be the best locations for our group would be much appreciated. One of the group would like to be in reach of Lisbon, the rest of us would like a semi rural location with walks, a nearby village, and scenery the artists amongst us can paint. Sea views, historic sights, places to cycle and nearby restaurants are on the list of attractions we are looking for.

My wife and have booked flights for four days in Lisbon in early November.
I was wondering what are some things to do?
We are looking at some hotels, including HF Fenix, Real Palacio or Monte Belvedere - any other suggestions?
Also thinking of hiring a car, even if for a day for a day trip to Mafra - Ericeira - Sintra - Cascais. Does that seem doable? Any better day-trip ideas?
Seems like Bairro Alto is the place to be for hotel/restaurants/bars?
Does anyone know what is the address of a public elevator, Or escalator that was planned at the beginning of the 20th century by a disciple of Gustave Eiffel between downtown district (Chiado) and Upper Quarter (Barrio Alto)
not the Santa Justa Lift !
