How to reach Coimbra

Coimbra is served by two international airports: Lisboa (LIS) and Porto (OPO). Connection time to Coimbra is roughly the same, either by car or public transportation.


Train

LIS – Arrivals at Lisboa may take the metro (~8 min ride, ~2 €) or a taxi (~7 €, 5 min ride) to the train station Oriente. From here take a long-distance train (“Alfa Pendular” or “Intercidades”) to Coimbra. Trains (20-24 €) depart every hour in average (see timetable) and take less than two hours to reach Coimbra-B station.

OPO – Arrivals at Porto may take the metro (~37 min ride, ~2 €) or a taxi (~25 €, 20 min ride) to the train station Campanhã. From here take a long-distance train (“Alfa Pendular” or “Intercidades”) to Coimbra. Trains (14-17 €) depart approximately every 45 min (see timetable) and take one hour to reach Coimbra-B station.

If you are staying downtown you can take the connecting train to Coimbra-A (see the map). In any case, you can use a taxi (5-8 €).

Shuttle

Service door to door by www.airportshuttle.pt (29-34 € each way).

Car

Not necessary in Coimbra but if you choose this option expect about 1h30m ride from OPO and 1h40m from LIS to central Coimbra.
