Where to stay in Coimbra

Indulge in the medieval splendor of Coimbra by booking a hotel in the city's historical hilltop and hillside central area, which is home to the majority of its hotels and guesthouses. By staying right in the middle of the Old Town, you'll have medieval monasteries, Renaissance homes, and Baroque halls right at your doorstep. You'll also be within walking distance of the city's famed university complex. Alternatively, try staying in one of the center's youth hostels, which offer shared rooms, lockers, breakfast, and a comfortable bed at a fraction of the cost of an upscale hotel. These accommodations also give you a good base from which you can experience the city's student-fueled nightlife. To get away from the mainstream tourist center a bit, opt for a hotel or bed and breakfast in the quieter residential neighborhoods east of the university.

  • This is a Nice little museum in the university of Coimbra. It is a bit small but also has some halls in the building across the street. Most of the experiments have English descriptions. In the other building its mostly a natural history museum with stuffed animals and physics organs.
  • Very interesting science museum, in an old university building. Unfortunately some of the experiments were not working and needed to be fixed.
  • A fantastic and rich University Museum dedicated to science. Very often there are activities to the general public and some especially for kids.
  • Educational, entertaining, interactive how should be the science museums. Spend a very good time and I learned much. I recommend that like science.
