Train from Lisbon to Porto

Jump to last reply

We are planning a fall trip to Portugal. We will be arriving in Lisbon 6:15am on a Friday and plan on going directly to Porto by train and have some questions:

Do we need to get train tickets in advance or can we get them at the station?
From what I understand, it's the Oriente station, correct?
What's the easiest way to get to the station from the airport (I'm thinking taxi) and about how much would it cost?
How much time to allow to get from plane to train?
Where do we get breakfast (either to go or on train, whatever is easiest)?
What are the differences in classes on train (comfort vs tourist)?

We figure we'll get some sleep on the train, so we can hit the ground running in Porto. We'll be staying at Guest House Douro.

Thank you.
