Introduction

The Portuguese city of Viseu has an attractive historical center and is situated in one of the country's nicest wine regions. The city's prosperity, both now and in the old days, can be gathered from the richness of the old buildings, but also from the city's modern architecture. The showpiece is the Romanesque and Gothic cathedral (Sé) in the old center.

Population

The city has approximately 50,000 inhabitants.

Location

Viseu is centrally located in Portugal about 50 kilometers from the Atlantic coast. The city lies in the so-called Beira Alta, between two mountain ranges, the Serra da Estrela and the Serra do Caramulo. From these mountains many rivers and streams flow through the area. This is the famous Dão wine region.

Economy

Viseu is the capital of the Dão wine region and wine-trade and research of vinicultural methods therefore form an important part of local economy. Both the Dão Wine Institute and the Solar do Vinho do Dão are based in the city. The city is also known for its black pottery and copper and iron appliances. The conglomerate Visabeira (with interests in telecommunications, construction, real estate, tourism and other services) is headquartered in Viseu. There are also many institutes for higher education.

Airports

The nearest international airport is Porto Airport. It's situated 140 car kilometers northwest of the city, at about an hour and a half-drive from Viseu. It's easily reachable by rental car via the A25 and then the A1.

Public Transport

Viseu has good public city transport, exploited by bus company STUV. Buses run frequently and the material is modern. A funicular connects the square Adro da Sé in the old city with the Forum in the new city. There are also bus connections with several other Portuguese cities, including Porto and Lisbon. Visue has no train station.

Traffic and Parking

It's easy to find your way around Viseu by rental car. Via the inner ring (Estr. da Circumvaiaçao) you can easily drive from one part of the city to another. Finding a free parking place in the street isn't that easy, but fortunately there are several parking lots and some garages. Viseu lies near freeway A25 which runs from the Portuguese port city of Aveiro to Salamanca in Spain. Southwest of town this freeway crosses the A24/IP3, an important north-south connection. When driving by rental car from Viseu to Nelas you'll pass many vineyards.

Hotels

Viseu has a large choice of accommodations ranging from basic guesthouses to five-star hotels. There's also a youth hostel (Pousada de Juventude). In addition, there are  accommodations just outside the city, for example in the Urbanização Quinta do Bosque west of Viseu, where you'll find an enormous, modern hotel and conference center. One of the city's best hotels is Pousada De Viseu, which is housed in an impressive building of a former hospital.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card.

You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation.
