How to reach the Department of Mathematics?

If you are not in Coimbra
By train: Coimbra is served by the "Linha do Norte", the main railway, of the Portuguese railway system. Here you will find the schedules and price information about this railway line. Note that you should leave the train on Coimbra B. From here take a taxi or the rail connection to the railway station in the center of Coimbra. From there you can take one of the city buses (line 103 connects the station to the campus directly).
