TOMAR - ARRIVING AND DEPARTING

By Train

Tomar's railway station is just outside the historic city centre.

Tomar has regular trains from Lisbon (Santa Apolonia Station) calling at Lisbon (Oriente) on the way. Trains run about every 1 - 2 hours. The journey takes about two hours.  These are regional trains, therefore seat reservation is neither required nor available. Return (round-trip) fare from Lisbon is €16,30.

Timetables can be downloaded from www.cp.pt website. The site can be obtained in English by clicking on the small 'Union Flag' icon at the top of the page next to where it says 'Acesso Rapido'.

It is possible to travel by train from the north eg Porto, Aveiro and Coimbra,  by changing trains either at Entroncamento or Lamorosa. Train times can be found at www.cp.pt also.

Tomar is also on the national long-distance express bus (coach) network with connections from all parts of the country. Timetables and fares can be found and reservations can be made at www.rede-expressos.pt but be aware that this site is in Portuguese only.
