FLY INTO PORTO AIRPORT PORTUGAL
GOING TO AND FROM THE AIRPORT:
“GOIN” – THE DOOR TO DOOR SHUTTLE FROM THE
AIRPORT TO ANYWHERE IN TOWN.
TELEPHONE: +351 937 599 089
This was the easiest way to get from the airport to the hotel
and vice versa. The price was 8 euro’s each way for us. It starts
at 5 euro’s but depends on where your hotel is. To
book this in advance you can go to their web site before your
trip so you know where to go once you arrive at the airport.
On the way back you can ask reception to book it for you
the day before you travel, and it will pick you up at the hotel!
TAXI TO OR FROM THE AIRPORT
¢22-30 Euro’s from the Airport to the Hotel we stayed in!
QUALITY INN PORTO

This was ideal in many respects. It is basic and the rooms
are a little dated, but it is spottlessly clean and really well
located for the clinic (less than 5 minutes walk – even if you
are a slow walker) and has plenty of restaurants within walking
distance from the hotel, as well as close to shopping and
right in the middle of town. Prices for us were ¢155.00 for
2 nights which also included a buffet breakfast. Staff speak English.
THINGS TO DO WHILE IN PORTO
There are lots of tours to do in Porto. A trip up the river was
highly recommeded,, but we were short on time. We did the
hop on – hop off bus tour of the CIty which costs ¢13.00 for
1.5 hours if you do not get off the bus. It leaves from right
outside the hotel so it is very easy to access and highly
recommended as a chance to see the city on the fly! You can
purchase tickets at the hotel reception. They run every 30
minutes or so.
