From the Lisbon Airport:
Go to the ESTAÇÃO DO ORIENTE to catch a train to Coimbra. To get there you can choose the following options:
a) Taxi -  Approximately 10€ for a 10-minute trip.

b) Metro - Catch the red line and get off at "Oriente" (third stop). The metro works between  6h30 and 1h00m  and trains run regularly in 7 to 10-minute loops. The fare, one trip charged, is 1,90€. See the Lisbon metro diagram here.
At Oriente, catch a train to a Coimbra-B (the fastest one is the Alfa-Pendular, 1h35m, 22,80€; followed by the Intercidades, 2h00m, 19,20€).

From Oporto Airport:
The Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport, in Porto, is 11 km away from the city, so getting a taxi from there to the railway station is quite expensive (20-25€, with 20 percent surcharge in the evenings and weekends). The easiest and less costly way will be to take the Metro. The direction to it is signposted throughout the airport, so just follow the signs and take Line E (Purple) from the airport to the Campanhã railway station. Metro trains run about every 20 minutes from early morning until after midnight. That will take about 32 minutes and cost 2,20€ - a Z4 (zone four) ticket. See information on Oporto's metro here.

Catch a train to Coimbra-B. Three types of trains are available at the  Estação de Campanhã: the Alfa Pendular (fastest), the Intercidades and the regional trains. The Alfa trains take around an hour to get to Coimbra (16,70€). The Intercidades takes some more minutes to arrive (13,20€).
