We hope for an on-site event that will take place in Porto, Portugal. Porto is an attractive city and we are proud of its reputation for hospitality, breath-taking landscapes, renowned architecture, culture, shopping, food and the worldwide famous Port. The city is located along the Douro estuary in northern Portugal and the ‘historic centre’ was listed World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996. Porto was four times elected Best European Destination.
HOW TO GET TO PORTO?
Porto is within easy reach by land or air.
Getting to Porto by plane
Porto’s international airport, Francisco Sá Carneiro, is the country’s second busiest. The airport, which serves hundreds of major international destinations, is only 15 km from the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. There are direct flights to Porto from Brazil, Africa and North America, besides Europe. Importantly, major budget airlines operate flights to Porto from dozens of European destinations.
There are also excellent connections to the other Portuguese international airports, including Lisbon. Participants choosing to fly into Lisbon, Portugal’s main airport, will find it easy to get to Porto, as the two cities have good air, rail and motorway connections.
Training school participants can reach the city centre quickly, safely, comfortably and inexpensively by light rail (metro) or bus.
Getting to Porto by train
Training school participants can also travel to Porto by train (or bus). The city is served by two main railway stations – Campanhã and S. Bento. Participants travelling from Lisbon will arrive into Campanhã. The city centre can then be reached by taking the light rail (metro) or a train to S. Bento (it is just a five-minute ride from Campanhã).
Training school participants arriving into S. Bento will notice the beautiful blue tiles.
