People attending our Colloquium from abroad may arrive in Portugal either by 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 from Lisbon (taking the direction of the north and the same highway A1) about 250 km.
Besides using the Coimbra Airport Shuttle (see below), after your arrival, 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.
