Lisbon to Seville or Madrid to Seville

Should we take the fast train from Lisbon to Seville, or get a connecting flight from Lisbon to Madrid, then take the fast train to Seville. Which one is better after an overnight flight from Miami to Lisbon?

Sorry, I do not follow you.

There is no fast train direct from Lisbon to Seville. Fly if possible.

Why, if you immediately want to go to Seville, are you flying into Lisbon?

And after a flight of that duration I would not be continuing on a second leg immediately.

You're right, I though there would be a fast train from Lisbon to Seville, but there isn't. Flying TAP to Lisbon, then connect TAP to Madrid and finally take the fast train to Seville. That seems to be the cheapest and easiest route. Yikes..I'm tired just writing it. :/

I apologize for not being clear and having some wrong information. We will be heading to Seville. Our flight is from Miami to Lisbon (on TAP-cheapest flight). I was wandering what is the best way to get from Lisbon to Seville. It seems as if taking a connecting flight to Madrid, then taking the AVE to Seville will be the best. Thank you for your advice, I do appreciate it.

How are you with long distance bus/coaches? Look up www.alsa.es and specifically International journeys and you will find a daily overnight going from Lisbon to Seville. And on certain days (looks like Thurs/Fri/Sat/Sun) an afternoon bus leaving Lisbon Sete Rios bus station at 13.30 then Lisbon Oriente at 13.45 finally arriving in Seville at 21.00 Spain is one hour ahead of Portugal. Cost of travel is €39.

Am sure barlaventoexpert can add more ideas from the Algarve.

As you are flying TAP all the way to Lisbon can you not talk to them about flying you on to Seville for best price?

OK!

Now we have an idea off your requirements!

Some points:

1) Lisbon is NOT a good European entry point for visiting Seville!

2) Although only +- 300km apart there are limited public transport links between the two.

3) The only scheduled public transport links between Lisbon and Seville are:

a) The TAP Air Portugal daily flight which often is operated by small beechcraft/embraer type aircraft.

b) Scheduled alsa.es long distance direct bus service and DAMAS/EVA bus service via Faro, Algarve.

c) THERE IS NO DIRECT RAIL LINK OF ANY TYPE between Lisbon, the rest of Portugal and Seville!

I would look at routing via somewhere like Barcelona if looking at low cost flight options to Seville.Even routing via Madrid is a pain as there are no low cost operators between Madrid and Seville!

Finally, I would look at vueling.com for possible reasonably priced flights from Lisbon to Seville via Barcelona!
