Madrid, Andalusia, Lisbon public transport and itinerary suggestions

Jump to last reply

I have a trip on hold where I land in MAD at 7:20 PM on December 25 (yes, Christmas Day) and depart out of LIS at 10:20 AM on January 10. For a variety of reasons, flying in or out of SVQ (Seville) does not work well for this trip.

I've been to Madrid a couple times, and although I would not consider myself an expert, I would be happy with an overnight before proceeding to Seville on December 26 (probably in the evening) by train. I do like Madrid and Toledo, but I am eager to get on to spots I have not been before. I am thinking Seville is the best spot to start with, but open to suggestions there too.

Then I want to see Andalusia for X days. Maybe December 26-January 4? If I am doing this by public transport, how should I base myself?

Then I have to transport myself from here to Lisbon. I see two options: overnight bus from Seville OR from Seville, train to Faro + bus to Lisbon. So let's assume an overnight bus arriving January 5 (but open to opinions).

Then I want to see Lisbon for Y days, perhaps January 5-10 (leaving early on the 10th as described above). I am open to a suggested time reallocation, of course.

I want to do all of this by public transport. I sort of speak Spanish. I do not speak Portuguese, but I have been told that the level of English is much higher in Portugal than it is in Spain, so that does not worry me.

Any suggestions about this itinerary are welcome. Thanks for your help.
