Travel to Porto mid February to mid march  (5 Answers)

My husband and I have an opportunity to stay in Porto from mid February to mid March. Does it make any sense weather wise to live there for one month or is it so cold no one is outdoors. Will there be any beauty renting a car and exploring the northern part of the country at that time.

Moving to Porto  (4 Answers)

Hi everyone,

I visited Porto a while ago and was very impressed, everyone was really nice and friendly, great atmosphere. So I am decided to move to Porto (at the moment i live near Lisbon), already gave a notice to the landlord and have to get out in 2 months time. I plan to stay for at least a year and may be even settle down there. Now the main question for me is where to rent a place, I work from home so there is no travel to the office, also I think I can afford to stay anywhere from financial perspective. I move alone, don't know anybody and plan to find some social circle and some friends. Also I am not very social person and I plan to change it :) So i would really appreciate some advises of which area to choose, first thought was to get a flat near University since it is close to the bars and clubs. Another possibility is Foz do Douro, i haven't been there but read many good things about it, still not sure if it is alive enough? The focus is to stay in a place where it would be easy to find something to do, place with more possibilities to meet people. Please let me know if you have any thoughts.

A little about me, I am a guy, 34 y.o., originally from Latvia but in the past years lived in various places in Europe, speak English and some Spanish, learning Portuguese.

Thank you,
Denis.

Does anyone know if it is possible to cycle or push a bike over this bridge? My bike is very heavy (approx. 65kg) so difficult to carry up lots of steps. Coming from the south into the city.

Parking/Sights  (3 Answers)

Any suggestions for the cheapest walkable parking nearest the sites . Would prefer ticket type parking - not metered or pay and display as it is too easy to over run the parking and be fined

Many thanks

Best place to park in Porto  (1 Answer)

I'm travelling around Portugal this July and want to visit Porto. I'm going to be in my car, and have heard that parking and driving in Porto isn't that easy. I've looked in to parking on one of the streets near the main football stadium but am unsure if this is the best option? Are there any other alternatives that you recommend- I'm looking to spend probably the whole day in the city. Thanks

Porto - Montreal (2 Stops) - 16 year old minor  (8 Answers)

Hello. I'm flying from Porto to Montreal with 2 stops in Frankfurt and London Heathrow on December 17th. I'm 16 years-old, I have a Portuguese passport and I'm flying all alone! I've never flew alone in a flight with so many stops... the only time I flew alone was from Porto to Paris and it was quite simple (I didn't even need to go through passport control or anything).

  • My flight from Porto to Frankfurt departs at 6AM and arrives at Frankfurt at 09H50 AM (Germany, GMT +1).
  • My second flight, departs from Frankfurt at 11AM and arrives in London at 11H45 AM.
  • My flight which will take me to my final destination departs from London at 1PM and arrives in Montreal at 3H25 PM.

All the connection flight are made at the same terminal. In Frankfurt it's in Terminal 1 and in London Heathrow it's in Terminal 2 and I only have 1h10-1h15. I'm flying with Lufthansa but London-Montreal is operated by Air Canada. I bought this fligh in a travel agency and I have a Lufthansa frequent flyer card.

I'm kinda nervous about having to do this, I've been on a flight with stops and connections so I'm a total beginner. Do I have enough time to connect between my flights? Where will I have to show my passport and go through security (since I've been told I don't need to go through customs from Porto to Frankfurt)? What if I lose a connection flight because of a delay or because I didn't have enough time to go through passport control and get to the gate? As a minor I'm quite nervous. Should I warn the flight attendant before I land in case I'm late for the next flight?

Thanks in advance!
