Portugal's Greatest Hits (Video + Stills)

Internet Premiere

My film “Any Porto In a Storm” features Lisbon monuments and its bullring with Moorish ornaments, Portuguese folk dancing and the Portuguese blues (Fado). Visit a horse ranch, the scenic west coast, Roman Empire sites, a magnificent garden, beautiful Porto, walled church of medieval knights, climbing ancient walls, and Fatima’s Catholic miracle site.

“Any Porto In a Storm” can be seen on the web, if you have a high speed internet connection. This is a free, non-commercial streaming video on the Windows Media Player. No ads and no strings attached.

Where to go in PORTUGAL???

Hi All!

I am planning to spend a week in Portugal towards the beginning of October. I have found a cheap flight from Madrid to any one of these airports: FARO, PORTO and LISBON. I will be running around quite a bit in Spain and was hoping to spend one week in one spot in Portugal and chill out. I like beaches (but doesn’t have to be by the beach), beautiful scenery, seeing cool architecture/museums, etc. and also needs to be a cheap area.

Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated!

Look for advice on travel between countries!

This summer (May 28-June 17) myself and two friends will be traveling to Lisbon, Barcelona, Paris, Venice, Florence, Rome, and Athens. Our flights to and from are already booked and now I’m struggling to find the best way to get around within the countries. I think we are going to fly from Rome to Athens just to save time/energy getting there by rail. I’ve been looking at railpass but I’m not sure how much it is really going to save me.

I was hoping to take night trains when possible.

Camino de Santiago

Has anyone traveled the Camino de Santiago? I was thinking of doing the Camino Portugues since I have a good friend in Porto. Any input would be great!

Transportation Porto-Lisbon- Tarifa or Seville

Hi Everyone,

I’m trying to plan my trip to Portugal and having a bit difficulty with transportation. Can anyone help?

1. What is best way to get from Porto to Lisbon?

2. After Lisbon, I would like to go to Tarifa. What are my options for getting there? I also want to go to seville after Tarifa, so any suggestions/tips would be appreciated! Thank you!

Portugal, Spain, Italy and then Croatia.

Ok Guys, I’ve got Portugal sorted out and I have the following itinerary leading up to Pamplona:

Porto – 3 days
Lisbon – 3 Days (or an extra day in Lisbon and reduce my time in Algarve to do a day trip to Sintra??)
Algarve Region – 4 days
Seville – 2 days
Granada – 2 days

Now should I:
A) Go to Alicante/Valencia for 2 days and go to Madrid for 3 days
B) Go to Madrid for a few days and thn to Valencia before moving up to Barcelona.

Spain - Ibiza - Portugal

Hi! I’m fairly new at traveling. In fact, I’ve never traveled outside outside the US. All help would be appreciated. Smile

Planning a 11 day trip at the end of June to the first week of July. In my mid 20’s seeking history & architecture, lots of time by bodies of water (not necessary laying on the beach), and a little partying. I’m from NYC, so I really rather be outdoors than indoors (Musuems are too confining.


Hey guys,

Just booked a cheap flight to Porto from the 12th June. The aim is to get around to Pamplona by the 5th.

All I am after is a bit of information for the Portugal leg of my trip at the moment. So far my plan is:
Porto, Lisbon and Lagos/Sagres/Faro. Staying in each place for 3 or 4 days. And I will probably be traveling by train or bus. I hear buses are quicker in Portugal than the trains.

Is there any things I should definitely see there? In those cities. I really want to see the Stunning cliffs down in lagos. But is there anything else worthy of seeing.
