Porto to Sintra

Hoping to travel from Porto to Sintra by train .

Does any one know how long this takes. I believe we have to go via Lisbon.

If there are only buses how long do they take. (ie long enough to get car sick!)

Thanks for any help. M

Bus or train you have to go to Lisboa first. Then you have to change to a train to Sintra. Train from Porto to Lisboa is about 3h. Look at the train company website www.cp.pt

By train it's overall about 4 hours. Bus Porto to Lisbon about 3 hours 30 minutes - www.rede-expressos.pt

There are no buses between Lisbon and Sintra, so that's a 40 minute train ride in whatever case.
