How do I get from Cascas to the moto GP racing track using public transport this weekend?
Scotturb bus 418.
You will need to get a bus or train from Cascais to Estoril first.
The 418 departes from Cascais.
Not according to this it doesn't:
Estoril Station to Sintra
(as an aside, Scotturb's route map page on the website has been 'under construction' for at least two years, so it not easy to find which bus goes where without looking at every single route!)
Having said that, it may be feasible to take one of the buses from Cascais to Cascais Shopping (mall) and pick up the 418 there, thus avoiding going into Estoril and doubling back part-way, or likewise the 413 to Alcabediche Largo, but without a map it is not easy to plan. And some long waits might be involved as the buses run only once an hour for the most part.
I had a hard time to find out which busses departed from Cascais (especial with the website not displaying the maps).
Just go to the Cascais bus station and have a look. The lines are displayed there; see: http://cache.virtualtourist.com/4672278-Cascais_Bus_Station-Cascais.jpg
Travel Tips for Estoril
Along the promenade between Cascais and Estoril, you will find CIRCUITO ACTIVO. The community wanted to promote healthy lifestyles and get people active. An area was set up with sit-up beds, monkey bars, and many other excercise venues. Hansi did some sit-ups and got to the count of ten, before he tuckered out. Maybe our community should have something like that along our jogging trails.
Estoril : The largest casino of Europe!!
Estoril has long welcomed international visitors. During World War II it acquired a glamorous reputation when Portugal's neutrality and mild weather attracted the rich and the famous, German and English spies, and European royals and aristocrats such as King Umberto II of Italy, Carol II of Romania, the Count of Paris, and Spain's Don Juan. Hollywood actor Orson Wells stayed at the town's legendary Hotel Palacio at the time, and was reportedly "stunned" by the number of kings at the hotel during his stay.
The town has since lost much of its status, but maintains a certain faded grandeur and is still a fashionable cosmopolitan playground with Europe's largest casino, tennis courts, some of Europe's finest golf courses, an automobile race track that has held Formula One Grand Prix races, and an attractive sandy beach.
