You can go by train or coach.

Either way you are looking at a 6 to 8 hour journey; it is about 400 miles.

By train :

you can look up the times etc in English at www.cp.pt

From Lsgos you have to get a local train to Tunes and change there. There is a direct train to Porto from Tunes at 726 which will mean leaving Lagos at 611am, arriving in Porto Campanha at 1244 leaving a half hour journey on the metro to the airport.

Other wise you have trains from Lagos at 0819 and 1219 change at Tunes and Lisbon Oriente arriving in Porto about 8 hours later, then there is another more direct train at 1411 change at Tunes as before arriving in Porto at 2044.

Reservations are needed so you can either do that on line or at the station in Lagos. One way should not cost more than about 45 Euros.

There are two bus companies operating from Lagos with long distance service to Lisbon and Porto. Their website are in only in Portuguese at www.renex.pt and www.rede-expressos.pt; both offer on-line booking. Renex have a little office in town near the market and rede-expressos can be booked at the bus station if required.

The journey by coach will take about 8 hours normally includes a change in Lisbon. Both companies run 6 - 8 buses a day. A one way ticket should be around 30 Euros.

Hope that helps.

As usual, cubsur is spot on.

He is most certainly a man with whom I would like to share a bottle or two of Defesa.

Let me add that as you come out of the train station in Porto (Campanhã) you can cross the street and enter the metro station that takes you non-stop to Porto’s airport. Takes a good 30 mins to get to the airport. Line E; about 2 euros via self-service machine on nearby platform.

It can make Ryanair’s flights attractive?
