Overview

The Eurail Portugal Pass gives you extensive travel on the national rail network of Portugal, with your choice of first or second class travel for 3, 4, 5 or 8 days of rail travel within a one-month period. You can also decide whether you’d prefer those travel days to be consecutive or non-consecutive.

Situated next to Spain on the Iberian Peninsula, Portugal’s history-rich cities and lush landscapes make it the perfect spectacle for rail travel. With the added benefit of centrally located rail stations, the Eurail Portugal Pass provides the simplest and most convenient transport around. More pluses : no stress of flying, no road signs you can’t read or high gas prices, and no fumbling around with unfamiliar currency in a hurry. You’re ready to roll.

Journeying to northern Portugal ? There’s no better place for a Port-wine libation than its birthplace, Porto. Then visit Lisbon, the capital city. Built on seven large hills overlooking the Tagus River, the stunning views will arrive before you do. How about taking the train to Coimbra, home to one of the oldest universities—and best libraries — in Europe ? And here’s something to learn before you leave : your Portugal Pass has travel benefits that include discounts on select attractions and sightseeing tours.
