Arriving by car

  Porto is located in the north coast of Portugal and is served by a good road infrastructure.
  To the north is served by highway A3, which goes until Spain, near Vigo. To the east is A4, that end in Amarante, where it encounters IP4, that enters Spain (near Zamora).
  Finally, to the south is A1, Portugal's main highway, which goes to Lisbon. When you arrive at Porto, you will reach a "circular" road named VCI that surrounds Porto. The best pathto arrive at the hotel is to take the exit named "Campo Alegre", and follow the directions in the map. See other section for a more detailed map.

Arriving by plane

  Porto is served by Francisco Sá Carneiro International Airport.

  There exists a bus route, called AeroBus, providing a fast connection between the airport and the city's leading hotels and downtown Porto, including of course the Tuela Hotels.   The AeroBus leaves every 30m (from 7:45 to 19:15) and it costs 2,49 euros (500 escudos).
  For more information (timetables, etc) visit the AeroBus Web Site.

  Other alternative is to use a taxi. From the airport to the hotel the price should be around 13 euros.
