Sono venuto all'Erasmus a Coimbra quest'anno e sebbene conosca già la città, vorrei mostrarlo ai miei genitori che stavano visitando il Portogallo. Dato che entrambi sono abbastanza grandi, camminarli su e giù non sembrava una buona idea. Ho visto il tuk tuk vicino all'università e l'ho trovato perfetto. L'autista parlava un buon inglese e tutti abbiamo capito. Così sono stato in grado di rendere una visita molto confortevole e divertente. Aiutò che era una bella giornata di sole.

Maping Coimbra
One hour tour that allows you to map the main monuments and other interesting places of Coimbra. From the Baixa and the Santa Cruz church, to the University, and almost in the top the beautifull Saudade garden full of poems that supposedly are written from former people and students that lived in Coimbra. It´s an up and down and the tuk tuk becomes ideal, especially in the old and very narrow streedts of the old part of town. Our guide was very kind and patient and the tour took a bit more time than expected but he didn´t mind. Recommend it.
Good way of starting
Making a 1 hour tour on tuk tuk across Coimbra it´s a very good way of starting to know the the city. There are many points of interest such as the Arch of Almedina, Santa Cruz church, Sé Nova and Sé Velha and of course the University. Many of this points are not so close to each other and public transport can be confused. With the help of the driver-guide one can pass many of the main spots and later maybe to make a more depth visit.
