Hi Andy <BR> <BR>The train travel takes one ferry boat and 2 trains. <BR> <BR>The overall is about 5:30 hours. Departures from Lisbon are at 8:10, 13:20, 17:40, 19:10. <BR> <BR>Bus is direct, takes 3:30 hours, costs 2700 escudos. There are departures at 1, 7:30, 8, 10:30, 14:15, 15:30, 17:15, 17:30, 18:00 and 19:30. <BR> <BR>If you have time and want to offer yourself oldfashioned travel through the South of Portugal, take the train. <BR> <BR>If you want to efficiently arrive to the Algarve, definitely take the bus. <BR> <BR>Joao

Andy, <BR> We recently flew R/T from Lisbon to Faro on TAP for $110. Takes less than an hour. Friends flew with us from Lisbon to Faro but departed Faro for Madrid. I think that was about $150. We were pleasnatly surprised at the low cost of these airfares; you might want to check it out re: Seville. We were staying just west of Lagos, car rental was very affordable and the drive was little less than an hour from Faro airport.

still curious: I know there is a bus that goes twice a day from Lagos to Sevilla, takes about 5 hours costs 3500 escudos. I will return on the 12th, so if you can hold on till then, will fill you in on the details.
