As I have never used Lisbon airport, I would be grateful to anyone who can tell me how to get from the airport to Coimbra using public transport.

use the metro or a taxi to get to oriente train station and catch the train there. pre-book on www.cp.pt as seats must be reserved and big discount if booked a week ahead

There is also an express coach service which you can book online to obtain a 5% discount:

www.redeexpressos.pt

The journey is 20 - 30 minutes longer that the train and slightly cheaper, unless you bag one of the advanced purchase train tickets mentioned by peteknopp. Those advanced purchase tickets are a steal and I recently managed to get from Coimbra to Lisbon for €7.50 which worked out cheaper than my normal senior citizens, 50% discounted fare.

The coaches run from Sete Rios in Lisbon which can be reached by taxi or metro to Jardim Zoological. The metro will require you to change though at Sao Sebastian, unlike the journey to Oriente rail station which is direct,
