Após o café da manhã a Aida e o Mário deixaram-nos na estação de Cascais. Fomos até ao Cais de Sodré e apanhamos o metrô até à Estação de Santa Apolônia.

... each. Porto certainly is a place where you can stretch your dollar.
On Thursday morning I presented my paper in a lecture hall in front of about 20 attendees. The event went for a breadth of presenters rather than a depth so it meant they had to squeeze a lot of sessions into similar time slots. I think the conference moving forward would do well to have a fifth day so that more people would have a chance to see each other's ...
... them! Caught a taxi home as it was so hot and there was a huge protest march happening right on our street because we are about 100 metres from Parliament House. Thousands of people! Andrew, Bruce and I went out to a local restaurant (Di not feeling so well) but I didn't enjoy it very much and by the end of the evening I was feeling quite unwell again. Perhaps I had over done it during the ...
was happening up to this point, when all of a sudden a bird pooped on all of
us. We laughed so hard and it provided comic relief. We literally got **** on
in a time where we were probly sitting there looking very miserable- it was
great. We ended up finding Helena- our land lord at 198… so im not sure where
186 came from. The apartment is so nice, has hardwood floors, and 3 bar
windows, we definitely keep hitting gold on these airbnb purchases. ...
Been so many times, but just continues to get better and better every time….no surprise it keeps winning tourism awards.
Take a step back in time and walk the cobblestone streets of this beautiful city. Let’s not forget the food!! Francesinhas, Bifana’s, Sardines, Frango and of course Natas (Portuguese tarts).

Historical Traveler Reviews Vila Gale Porto Hotel
This is an excellent Hotel, we stayed 4 nights March 8th 2006 to 11th. The Hotel is one of the tallest buildings in the City. It takes about 15 - 20 mins stroll into the shopping area down to the River Douro, its downhill all the way. A taxi is about 5 Euros including tip.
We stayed in this hotel from 25 - 28 Nov 05. We had a double room on the 12th floor (they have two floors with non-smoking rooms) The accomodation was very good, the room was very large and always clean.
I and my wife were in this hotel to celebrate our two year marriage. We were there for two days. We were at the 17th floor, so the view was fantastic, we could see all the city! The accomodation was very good, the room was very large and was always clean.
I have just got back from a stay at this hotel and found it clean, the staff nice and all in all good value for money, its not in the nicest of areas and its is a little bit of a trek to downtown but i would stay again.
I stayed at the Vila Gale Porto at the beginning of the month for 2 nights and really enjoyed my stay.
As before, I rate this hotel 3 not a 4 star.
We had a room on the front, good? - No, it overlooks a ghetto and half built hotel, long abandoned!!!!!!!!!
It's the only hotel I've stayed in that does not have an iorning board.... Staff- not very nice-
But beware.... they want you to stay there and then charge you for parking there?????????????
Far from downtown Porto.......
Won't be going back...........
