Does any one know if it is possible to travel from Porto to Lisbon via train/bus in 1 day? I am staying in porto and need to get to lisbon in 1 day to fly out.
thank for the help!
how much is ticket from lisbon to porto ?? by bus or by train
go to the site http://www.cp.pt/ there you find the english version. You can even buy a ticket there. But if you don't want to you can also check the price of each trip. ;)
That's correct - there are two types of train. The ALFA PENDULAR high speed trains are a little more expensive than the standard Inter-City trains and a little quicker.
AP trains are €27.50 in tourist (second) class and €39.50 in first class; Inter City trains €19.50 and €28.50 respectively.
Reservations are required and these are available 30 days before travel.
Alost all the trains go to Lisbon Santa Apolonia station, which is right on the edge of the city centre. A couple go to Lisbon Oriente and Eentrecampos from both of which you need the city metro to reach the centre so add €1.25 for the extra fare!
what is the big difference on 2nd or first class in the trains?
Is there AC on both classes?
Go for the cheaper ticket. The air temperature in the train car is pretty comfortable and there is air conditioning (I'm pretty sure). There were vents along the length of the car letting cold air in, anyway. I think the biggest difference is seat comfort and perhaps how many seats are in the car.
We rode 2nd Class and it was comfortable, and cheap.
