We will be staying at the Torre Verde-Tres Castelos in November, 2006. We are coming to Portugal after a week in Malaga,Spain. Is there a train we can take from Malaga to Portimao? How do you recommend we travel to Portugal? Do we need an international driver's license to rent a car in Portugal? Do we really need a car, or can we get around just as well by train? How much do the trains cost (there's 6 of us - 4 adults & 2 children)? We thought we would fly out of Lisbon to get home. One flight we found leaves 8:45 am from Lisbon - is there going to be a problem getting from Portimao to Lisbon that early on a Sunday?
I appreciate any help. We're first-time europe travelers and we are trying to avoid a costly mistake! Thanks, Linda
