  • Museu Academico / Academic Museum - Another great museum in the city of Coimbra. Get here in noon to beat the queue.  more »
  • This Museum is classical in architecture and filled with exquisite furniture and artefacts, depicting much of previous Portuguese history  more »
  • You cannot get to it without paying for the visit of the Biblioteca Joanina, which I think is a mistake. It is interesting to understand the history of the University, but the place is a bit cramped-you must make sure that if someone has difficulty to move into smaller spaces.

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.
