If you are arriving at one of the stations in Coimbra (bus terminal and train station), you will also get transportation to the Accreditation Center of the event. In those stations, you will have a welcome desk with volunteers prepared to answer all your questions, help you get your transportation and meet other needs.
From every city you might be coming, particularly if you are using a private way of transport, when you arrive in Coimbra you should get to our Accreditation Center, at Escola Básica 2/3 Poeta Manuel da Silva Gaio, Rua Luís Antonio Verney, Coimbra. In this location, besides all the information exchange, you will be given the credential that allows you to get to the sports venues, catering points and transportation vehicles.
If your method of transportation (aeroplane, bus, train, private) gets you on one of the official arrival and departure points in late hours when the Accreditation Center is closed, you will be given a temporary credential to get inside your accommodation, since you will be taken directly there.
