Train from Viana to Lisbon
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.
Re: Train from Viana to Lisbon
I've found a train which arrives in Lisbon at 10.30 AM, is it ok?
Departure: Viana @ 5:34, arrival in Nine 1h later.
At 6.50 you take the train at Nine to Porto - Campanha (arrival at 7.40)
Then, at 7.45 (you must hurry and pray that the train won't be late) you take the train to Lisbon, which arrives at 10.30 in Lisoa - Oriente (Parque das Nacoes).

Thank you so much for this - that is really helpful. Best wishes.
Travel Tips for Viana do Castelo
The beaches on this area hold a great attraction for the urban and rural populations, who have easy access to the coast. The busiest time of the year is the summer, when people come in search of rest, sun and sea as well as for recreational activities such as sailing, water-sking, bobyboarding, windsurfing and surfing.
Don't miss, but don't forget the water is a little cold :-)
Beautiful Beach of Afife
7 kilometres north of Viana is the beautiful beach of Afife as recommended for visiting in our Rough Guide to Portugal guide book!
we spent about an hour on the beach here relaxing after a day around the streets of Viana and the market, the fortress and then the church up on the hill - so we enjoyed just lounging around on the sand and up at the beachside cafe with excellent coffee and sunset above the waves!!
Then as my guidebook recommended we drove back onto the main road and a few seconds to the other side to try an apartment complex for pricing and availability which was very appealing to us - 2 bedroom apartment for 3 of us with breakfast for 50 euro! so we stayed there! Certainly more comfortable than our atmospheric night on the boat!
