How to Get to Areosa Portugal by Train

How to get to Areosa Portugal by train

Traveling around Portugal is relatively easy, thanks to an extensive train network and speedy toll roads. Buses connect smaller towns and rural areas, while ferries can reach islands in the Azores. Cycling is also popular in Portugal, especially in the mountainous national and natural parks and along the coast.

In Lisbon, the majority of train services leave from Santa Apolonia Train Station, a stop on the Blue Metro Line on the edge of the Alfama district. The alternative is Oriente Train Station, served by the Red Metro Line and located in the eastern part of the city.

From Porto, a train to Coimbra leaves every hour and takes around 2,5 hours. Explore the medieval streets of the walled town, admire 12th-century Se Velha Cathedral and get lost in Biblioteca Joanina. Then catch a regional or Intercity train to the University of Coimbra, one of the oldest universities in the world.

You can reserve tickets online or via the CP app, though you may not be able to book trains as far in advance as in Europe. However, you should have little trouble booking Intercidade and Alfa Pendular tickets for the next or even same day.

You can also rent a car in Areosa or choose a self-drive itinerary to visit the country’s famous palaces, vineyards and beaches. Ensure your rental car includes a GPS for easier navigation.
