Silves taxi

I plan to arrive at Silves this Sunday at 8.23 am by train from Lagos. Will a taxi be available at the train station to go to the city center? Thanks in advance

Possibly, but if not telephone them on the numbers shown on the website at https://www.taxiarade.com/

It is only about 20 minutes walk down the hill and you will be rewarded by best views across the river valley.

Hi - thanks. Is the walk from station to town centre down the hill? Then I can walk down. So, is it only the walk back that is uphill. Guess it is easier to get a taxi from the town center back to the station. I can save the uphill walk. Regards

Yes it is downhill.

Taxis wait by the river just to the left of the bridge when you cross it. You will see them.

Thanks for all the help. Had my hotel at Lagos ring up a taxi company at Silves and a taxi turned up to pick me up at the station. With no one around to ask for directions, it proved to be a good decision. As the same taxi offered to take us back, I could also leave the luggage in the taxi which was a big help.
