Hi. If you want to add the dates, LeishaCamden, Inger71 and KAS will be there from May 4th until May 9th, and I will be there from May 4th until May 12th. LeishaCamden will bring one extra person to be counted in for the restaurants.

I have not booked a hotel from the 9th until the 12th yet. I think of taking a short trip outside Lisboa for those days, if anyone have some suggestions on where to go, that would be great:-)

:thumbup::cool:

How far do you want to go? :)

Go north! :D Fist I recommend Porto city. Coimbra is also interesting, but smaller.

Or closer to Lisbon (you can go early in the morning and come back in the afternoon) you have Óbidos, it's a fortified village with a castle inside that is very pretty. Bus takes around 40 minutes but not from city center.

Even closer you have Sintra and Cascais but maybe you are going there in a group... there it's half hour by train, is taken in city center.

Away from Lisbon, to South, you have several little villages in Alentejo region. The landscape is totally different from north and maybe more different from what you are used... the most important: Évora, Beja, Elvas, Reguengos de Monsaraz, Marvão, Castelo de Vide. All places do avoid after June, it gets too hot there. :o

Thank you so much! Sounds like I should have extended my stay even longer, as there are plenty of nice places to go:-) I will read about the places and figure out what I want to do. If anyone is interested in joining me, let me know, and we can figure out where to go together:-)

@everyone: just ask if you have doubts about transportation to some place in particular. Unfortunately we don't have trains to everywhere.

The buses connecting cities: https://www.rede-expressos.pt/en/ Very confortable buses!

The trains timetables: https://www.cp.pt/passageiros/en/train-times
Kind of trains: Alfa Pendular (fastest) Intercidades (best solution, cheaper than Alfa) International (=) Regional (stops everywhere... slow, slow...) Urban (between major cities like Lisbon and surroundings)

Inside and around Lisbon there are several possibilities of cards, I'll speak about them later.
