Trains in Portugal are fantastic value, very comfortable, clean and frequent. They are very popular and in our experience it has been always possible to just turn up and book a seat on the next train. 

Arrival at Porto:  Aiport-> Campanha-> Coimbra-B-> Figueira da Foz

Take the metro from the Airport to 'Porto-Campanha' rail station in Porto. Then take a train to Coimbra-'B' station and change there for Figueira. (Cost about €20 single- kids under 5 free, 6-12 half price). If you can, take the fast train through to Alfarelos rather than Coimbra-B, as you'll then be much closer to Figueira before making the connection to Figueira.
