Getting to Aveiro

The closest airport is in Porto (Francisco Sá Carneiro international airport). This is located around 80km north of Aveiro. Another possibility is to fly into Lisbon airport, which is located 250km south of Aveiro.
Then you need to get a train to Aveiro (with any of the options).

 

From Porto Airport

BY TRAIN
The train is the most practical means of making the journey from Porto airport to Aveiro.

First, take the tram (metro) from the airport to the railway station (called Campanhã).

From Campanhã take a direct rail connection to Aveiro.

 

  1. Metro to train station

At the airport take the metro “E line” or “purple line” (it is the only line and the airport is the final stop so quite easy). Leave at metro stop “campanhã”. The trip takes takes 35-40 minutes, and costs €2 – zone 4 (Z4). Metro depart from airport every 20 minutes.

You can also take a taxi to Campanhã train station for around 30€ and takes around 30 minutes.

 

  1. Train to Aveiro

The train journey from Porto-Campanhã to Aveiro takes between 40 minutes and 1h15m. Price tickets depends on the type of train used. A single ticket cost 2.5€ on the suburban train (slowest), up to 15€ for the fastest (Alfa pendular).
The suburban train operates roughly all day long (from 5am to 1am next day) and there is at least 1 train per hours. Please check the timetable for the local train here.

There is also a few “alfa pendular” (fastest) and “intercity”  trains.
