How to Get to Coimbra
Coimbra is located 200 km north of Lisbon and 100 km south of Porto.  The best way to get to Coimbra is to fly to Lisboa or Porto and then rent a car or take a train.

Driving from Lisbon
On the way out of the Airport follow the signs for "A1", heading north. After 200 km, exit at "Coimbra Sul".

Traveling by train from Lisbon

  • Take a taxi from the airport to the “Lisboa-Oriente” railway station (10 min., around 10 €). As the ride from the airport to the train station is very short, it is advisable to take a taxi outside the departure hall, instead of taking it in the arrivals area.
  • Go to the upper ticketing level at the station and buy a ticket for an “Alfa Pendular” or “InterCidades” train.
  • Get off the train at “Coimbra B”.
  • Either take a taxi directly to your Hotel (it should cost less than 5 €) or take a local train to “Coimbra A” (downtown station), using your previous ticket (this transfer is included in the price). Almedina and Tivoli Hotels are less than 300 meters north of “Coimbra A”.


Driving from Porto
On the way out of the Airport follow the signs for "A1", heading south. Exit at "Coimbra Sul".

Traveling by train from Porto

  • From the airport, which lies to the north of the town, take a taxi or the new Metro E line to Estação Campanhã. Depending on traffic, this might take up to an hour.
  • Take an “Alfa Pendular” or “Intercidades” train.
  • Get off the train at “Coimbra B”.
  • Either take a taxi directly to your Hotel (it should cost less than 5 €) or take a local train to “Coimbra A” (downtown station), using your previous ticket (this transfer is included in the price). Almedina and Tivoli Hotels are less than 300 meters north of “Coimbra A”.
