Paulo picked us up and knowing we had wanted to see the oldest university in the Portugal and especially the Johana library, he planned the day so that we would not miss anything. He also took us to a local place for lunch in Coimbra for their special pork sandwich. We had asked not to return to Porto but be dropped off at the Coimbra train station to continue on to Lisbon which was no problem even with our luggage. Paulo was a lovely gentleman and we had a lovely day. Thank you.
