Arriving in Coimbra
People attending our Colloquium from abroad may arrive in Portugal either through Lisbon Airport or Oporto Airport. We recommend that once arriving you take the train or the bus to Coimbra. Of course, it is also possible to rent a car at the Airport facilities.
Coimbra distances from Porto (taking the direction of the south, highway A1) about 130 km and about 250 km from Lisbon (taking the direction of the north and the same highway A1).
Besides using the Coimbra Airport Shuttle (see below), regardless of the Airport, it is possible to get the main Train Station or the Main Bus Stop using the Subway, the city transfer or the taxi services.
Coimbra Airport Shuttle operates a door-to-door shared transfer between Coimbra and both Lisbon and Oporto airports. This service offers numerous daily shuttles going to or departing from the airports. Their schedules are regular, reliable, and adapted accordingly to the flights timetable. You can check the timetable and buy the tickets through the website airportshuttle.pt.
Those arriving in Coimbra from Lisbon and wishing to take the train should go to GARE DO ORIENTE (subway: ORIENTE STATION), while those arriving from Porto should go to CAMPANHÃ STATION (subway: CAMPANHÃ STATION).
For those wishing to arrive in Coimbra by bus, we recommend the Terminal of the REDE EXPRESSOS at Praça Marechal Humberto Delgado, Estrada das Laranjeiras, 1500-423 Lisboa (subway LARANJEIRAS STATION), or the Terminal of the same REDE EXPRESSOS at Praça 24 de Agosto, 125, 4300-096 Porto (subway 24 DE AGOSTO STATION).
