          Nice visit if you are in the area
          Worth the visit if you are in the area. The entry fee was 8 euros and it includes the ruins and the museum. It was a very interesting visit.

          Very nice ruins, good mosaics
          The ruins have been partially excavated and what there is to see is interesting but not very well preserved, the mosaics are nice and the garden of the house with the fountains is really nice, the fountains still work if you put in a 50 cent coin in the meter. What I didn’t care for was the paving they have done over the ruins and in the gymnasium area, it really ruins the whole effect. The museum is very small, you can see it in about 20 minutes, but it is worth it as you are already there and there is no extra charge. Getting there by public transportation is not easy as they only have a few buses a day. You can hire a taxi but I never checked on the price. We took a semi private tour out of Coimbra for 60 euros per person that included a visit to another interactive museum and the aqueduct nearby. The entire tour took about four hours from start to finish.

          Roman ruins in Portugal
          So interesting to view what life was like in this town based on the ruins. And there are digs currently happening so you get to watch archaeological work in real time. Not much shade but the museum and snack bar are indoors. Worth the visit!

          Worth the trip
          Amazing and definitely worth the trip! These ruins are in perfect condition. The mosaics are shockingly in great shape. The museum is interesting it’s really a shame that’s not better publicized because it’s worth a detour or a direct trip.

          Great, informative, easy
          Excellent tour! Don’t underestimate the value of your guide being this university’s graduate. Our guide shared with us her deep knowledge in history of the university and its traditions. Highly recommend.

          Coimbra University
          Sarah was so well-informed about Coimbra University! We also skipped the lines and stairs when entering the library. She answered all our questions. We highly recommend the tour!

          Exceptional tours outside of Coimbra!
          We made our return visit to Portugal and Coimbra in September and booked two tours with Sara - World Heritage of Central Portugal and Castles & Town Walls. Sara is an exceptional tour guide and picked us up promptly each day at our hotel. Highlights included visiting the World Heritage sites in Tomar, Batalha and Alcobaça. It’s hard to pick a favorite but the Mosteiro da Batalha (Monastery of Batalha) is extra impressive as you approach it in the middle of town and so is the aqueduct outside of Tomar. And approaching the castle of Montemor-o-Velho first thing in the morning was also extra impressive. We had some additional time along the way for lunch and local pastries - our favorite was the Pastéis de Tentugal. Having Sara provide historical and regional information along the way gives so much more context to what we were seeing than trying to go to all the sites on our own and you can tell that she loves sharing her expertise with others. Be sure to book early with Sara and get the most out of your time in and around Coimbra!

          Excellent
          Our guide was exceptional and the visit to the library was well worth the stop. The town is vibrant with students attending yet steeped in history

          Careful if accessibility is needed
          This was a very good tour with a knowledgeable guide. She was also considerate of one who had accessibility difficulty. That individual was able to access the library from the main level and not required to take the stairs. But the rest of the tour really would be hard for those with severe mobility issues. They can just choose the library like this guest. This is my second tour. Last year was with another group. Also informative but in a different way. I enjoyed this tour more.

          Great option for a quick tour!
          This worked out perfectly... My friends and I were just driving through Coimbra on our way to Tomar... We saw this two-hour tour option and thought it'd be perfect. Turned out it was! Our guide spoke both English and Spanish to the tour group. She was wonderful. Very knowledgeable. We got a nice history of the university and tour of the former palace grounds. This included the very famous library... While this tour can be booked at the last minute, I'd advise scheduling a few hours before your arrival.

          Nice to visit if you’re driving by it
          if you’ve never been to the ruins of a Roman city, Conimbriga might be something really interesting. If you’ve seen places like Ostia outside of Rome, Itálica outside of Sevilla, or Villa Romana Casale in Sicily, then this site is nothing special. There are sites like it all over the Iberian peninsula. There are some really nice artifacts in the museum. I found the museum more interesting than walking the grounds. It does offer a reduced price for those over 65. We spent less than an hour at the site.

          Worth it!
          So glad I did this tour even though it was incredibly hot. Got to experience the university and library with a student there, so fun and knowledgeable, I think her name was Eva (accents, language- maybe Ava?) A tour is definitely the way to go to learn as much as you can in a short time.

          Lovely guide. Super interesting tour.
          Our guide Eva was a lovely young lady whose English was excellent. She was friendly and very knowledgeable. As well as seeing the obvious things, she also took us to see areas that were less well known but very interesting. Highly recommended.
