Grande Pensao Alcobia -...

by Esther75

Grande Pensao Alcobia - Residencial This is a simple but comfortable hostel. Try to get a room on the backside of the hostel. On the frontside the view is great, but a lot of traffic noise! The breakfast is just a cup of tea or coffee and some bread with confiture. Not very much.

He has bus and rail connections.. Looks to me that Bus has more options but price is close to same. Service is good either way.
I rented a car as I was going round trip.

Thanks for the link above!

There are five daily trains Faro - Lisbon (six on Fridays) two of which are Alfa pendualr. One way far is 21 Euros on Alfa pendular, 18,50 on the others.

Two bus companies operate between Faro and Lisbon:

Rede Expressos has 12 - 15 daily departures, Renex about 8. Fares are about the same the the trains and journey times only slightly longer.

Thank you both.

How far are the bus stations from Portela? We land at 11:35am in Lisbon and really want to make it to the 1320 train which leaves Oriente but not sure if we'll have enough time to get to the train station?

thank you :)

Oriente station is close from Portela airport. There's just an avenue (Av. de Berlim) between the airport and that train station. It's not close enough to walk but there are buses. Avoid taking the taxis standing in the arrivals area.
To go to Faro, the train is a rather comfortable option.

For coaches, although many also depart from Oriente, the main bus station is at Sete-Rios. As there isn't yet metro at the airport, if you want to go there you must take a bus to the nearest metro station. Once there go to Jardim Zologico (blue line) where the intercity bus station is.

Travel Tips for Lisbon


by toonsarah

While graffiti can be rightly said to be a scourge of the city, you will find many examples which in my view demonstrate that the line between vandalism and art is very ill-defined. These examples were all photographed in the Bairro Alto on my recent visit, apart from the last which was taken in the Alfama some years ago. They are a million miles from the ugly tags and paint-sprayed scrawl of regular graffiti, and personally I think they enhance rather than mar the city’s streets. It would be good if the authorities might make the same distinction and clean up all the unsightly examples while retaining these little gems.

Much of this graffiti is created with the use of stencils, and in doing some research I came across a website with some more interesting examples of this (as well as an older image of the picture of the artist covering himself with paint, photo 2, which shows it before later graffiti had partially defaced it).

Care for some french tea?

by ginguba

When is Cascais (i've told you about it before :)) ) i'll give you a tip for where to have some delicious snack (like a wondefull-makes-me-fat chocolat cake). The "Mise en scýne" tea house it's on a lovely typical small house in that area of Cascais, with gorgeous decoration (you can buy there something to your own home-sweet-home) and a small splanade. It's run buy some french but all about it very multi-cultural, for exemple in the food. I speacially love the mint tea. Maroccan style.

After many years despising the river, the inhabitants of Lisbon are gradually learning to enjoy it. Restaurants and bars line the north bank, and fishing is a popular sport. New rules may turn it more difficult (and expensive) but, for my surprise, some samples justify the costs and risks.

However, only locals or fishing maniacs would spend all those hours looking at the water and missing... Lisbon.

Mediterranean climate


First of all: very comfortable shoes because Lisbon is on different hills so it has been build up and down. Take a stroll with high heels will be a nightmare for every woman. On the other hand, I went there in summer and it was warm and sunny. Not so hot and humid; moreover you can enter the churches with sleveless shirt (everyone been in Italy understand it's not so obvious). Sun glasses and hut. Lisbon is everywhere very bright. A 100asa film will be sufficient in open areas.
