Overview

Beyond the beaches of the Algarve and Lisbon’s seafaring past, Portugal brims with delights.

The national railway company of Portugal known as Comboios de Portugal (CP). Portugal has over 2,700 km of railway network. Train tickets for trains operating in Portugal can be booked in advance. International trains connect Portugal with Spain. Book train tickets to visit main cities of Portugal by train. Portuguese cities including Porto, Lisbon and Coimbra are all served by trains.

Cityscape

Experience the contradictory lively nightlife among exquisite architecture, sandy beaches and fantastic views in Lisbon. It’s a great city for exploring on foot with tiny streets, squares, shops and restaurants tucked away down every avenue. The capital also has excellent train connections with the rest of Portugal.

Landscape

Porto, the name may sound familiar, as it should, it’s the home of port wine. Just 3 hours from Lisbon on an Alfa Pendular (AP) train, it’s an interesting town with a beautiful train station, a Baroque church and winding streets. The historic Portuguese town of Sintra in the south is another feast for your eyes, set in beautiful rolling hills with a royal palace at its centre.

Take Home

For a hand-knit fishermen’s sweater as a reminder of your trip visit the seafarers’ towns of Nazare and Povoa da Varzim. Or for hand-painted tiles and intricate cutwork from Madeira try Lisbon city centre. Check market days nationwide to find the best deals.

Food & Drink

The food in Portugal is impeccably prepared and based on regional produce. Lisbon is best for seafood; buy yours fresh from Cascais market. To satisfy a sweet tooth try the Algarve for almond and fig sweets. And if you’re a fan of tripe, visit Oporto, they’re well known for being a nation of tripeiros (tripe eaters!).

New Perspective

Pay a visit to Portugal dos Prequeninos in Coimbra, 1 hour 48 minutes from Lisbon on an AP train. You’ll find a park full of miniature versions of Portugal’s monuments and a section devoted to the country’s former colonies.

    Poor Advice |
    "Having not used this service before and being a foreigner we saw the advice on printed Thalys ticket that "for safety reasons, your presence on the Thalys platform is mandatory at least 2 minutes before the train's departure and assumed the process would be simple. However, when we got to the Gare Nord station and were directed by locals to a lift (we had baggage and my wife had hurt her back after slipping on ice in Switzerland) we got stuck at turnstyle type entry as our printed Thalys "ticket" did not get us through. We were severely delayed as locals tried to help (even holding ticked over scanner, etc.) and communication was difficult (we do not speak French). By the time we were redirected to another entrance that did not require turn-style access (I assume the first access we were directed to by locals was for Metro and not Thalys train) we had missed the train. We were then forced to by new tickets at Euro 130 each (Euro 90 for my under 26 year old daughter)! The original tickets cost Euro 20! (hence my rating of 5 stars for "Value for money). At the price of Euro 130 each I would have flown and not take the train, but had no options at that point. Thankfully the train trip itself was most pleasant and relaxing with access to WiFi while we drank a bottle of red French wine to drown our sorrows. "

    Easy way to Malaga... |
    "From the very center of Madrid at Puerta del Sol to Atocha station is only a ten minute taxi ride....or if traveling lightly a short subway ride. AVE is a fast and comfortable train and with the special cost 1st class seats is was even more comfortable. 2.5 hours later we're in the center of Malaga, rental car ready and off down the coast...best way to travel.
