I will be arriving to Oporto (Carneiro) Airport next wednesday at 17:55. I will check luggage. I need to go to Vigo that evening.
I have two options
1) Take a train from Porto Campanhã to Vigo Guixar by train that leaves at 19:15, arrives 22:34 costs 15 euros
2) Take a bus from the oporto to Vigo, but it leaves at 21:45-00:30. costs around 12 euros
With option 1) then I need to travel from oporto airport to Campanhã. It looks to me that I have two options

So I am up to final details of my itinerary. I will be travelling by train when I can and by bus for other journeys. The only booking I have so far is for Lisbon. I want to see a mix of city, smaller towns and villages, rural and beachside. I don't want to be having too many different stops, preferring to base myself and do day trips to nearby areas.
8 Nights Lisbon
4 Nights Tomar (and day trips to outlying towns & villages)
4 Nazare (possible day trip to Alcobaca)
Hi As part of my trip to Portugal I will be spending about 9 nights in the Algarve at Tavira and maybe Lagos. Specifically, I am interested in walking along beach/waterfront and exploring the towns and either hiring a car for a few days or just taking buses for day trips. The LP seems to give Cabo de Sao V a big wrap and I like the idea but it also seems a bit difficult to get out there from Sagres. Is this correct? I like the idea of visiting the most SW point in mainland Europe but is it…
I could use some help developing an itinerary for my boyfriend and me for a trip to Spain/Portugal in Late October. I've read many comments on here to pick one country, but would really like to try to fit in both as I'm not sure when we'll be back. We are flying in and out of Lisbon as it was the most economical. We will have 12 nights. Our thought was 4 nights in Lisbon, 2 nights in Lagos, 2 nights in Seville and 4 nights in Barcelona. Is this too much? We may cut out Lagos, but liked the…
Hello, friends-- we are planning a 12-day trip to Portugal in March and are wondering whether it's worth it to spend 2-3 days in the Algarve during that time. I know it will be too cold to swim, but I've also heard that the weather is milder in southern Portugal than elsewhere. Is there enough to do off-season in the Algarve to make the trip worthwhile? Thanks in advance!
Hello, friends-- My girlfriend and I are traveling to Portugal this spring, and I'm wondering about how difficult it is to get around there for people with physical disabilities. I use a cane or rollator (walker with wheels) to walk, and I have some difficulty managing stairs. I have a feeling that Portugal's walk-up guesthouses and cobblestone streets may prove difficult. Does anyone have any advice for particular aspects of life in Portugal that may pose challenges for me, or any advice for…
We are a young couple in our late 20's planning a road trip in Portugal, We would arrive in Lisbon on September 27th and continue to Porto by car, it would be our first time there. Anyone has some recommendations for must see/visit spots at each city and on the road? We are into everything almost basically! I would love some information regarding Night clubs/bars/restaurants as well (:
I will be going to Portugal for 13 days. Lisbon for 4 days and than we plan on visiting Cascais, Sintra, Ericeira, Peniche and Nazare area on the west coast for about nine (9) days.
1) Would you recommend we rent a car in Lisbon or take the train/bus to all of these places?
2) In addition to the places I plan on visiting above, can you recommend any other places I should include on this itinerary above? (I have already been to Porto so no need to go there)
3) If you suggest a rental car…
