Taxis are relatively inexpensive compared to other countries. The area is also quite safe to walk out and explore. There is a large karting track in nearby Vila Nova de Poiares.
There are various historic churches, convents and castles to visit and also museums, both in Lousa and in Coimbra itself. A large Roman archeological site is situated at Conimbriga, which is about 30 minutes drive. The Convento de Cristo situated in Tomar, which is one hours drive from Coimbra, is a former headquarters of the Knights Templar and has absolutely stunning architecture and mosaics.
