      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

    • Bus Viana/ Pontevedra or Vigo

      by Grabybaby Online Now Jul 29, 2009 at 9:09 AM

      We are coming to Viana for 3 days in October prior to a couple of days in Oporto.

      We are coming from Vigo/Pontevedra.

      There is a train twice a day at inconvenient times and wonder what the bus service is like and whether there are any direct buses please. We will not be hiring a car.

      Many thanks

    • Train from Viana to Lisbon

      by LynBib Online Now Aug 13, 2007 at 8:23 AM

      I need to travel from Viana do Castelo to Lisbon on the morning of Friday September 7th to ideally arrive by 10am. There is a coach but the earliest is at 8 am and it takes 5 hours so doesn't arrive until 13.00.

      Is there a train that I can get from Viana - I see that there are trains from Porto that arrive before 10am and only take 2 and a half hours- can I get from Viana to Porto early in the morning?

      Thanks for any help you can give.
