Lagos to Lisbon

My wife and I will be leaving Lagos on 9/4 heading for Lisbon, probably by bus,. We would prefer to do the trip in 2 days. Question: Any suggestions on where to stop for the first day somewhere in between lagos and Lisbon

Take the slow road and stop somewhere like Vila Nova das Milfontes. Most of the buses to Lisbon run along the highway without stopping once they leave the Algarve region.

There's a bus from Lagos to Vila Nova das Milfontes every day at 1520 arriving at 1705 (see www.rede-expressos.pt for tickets or go to Lagos bus station) and you can resume your trip the next day. There are several daily buses to Lisbon again with Rede-Expressos. Book on line or at Lagos if you can as Vila Nova das Milfontes does not have a bus station. (You do need separate tickets for each journey.)

Vila Nova das Milfontes is a very pleasant little seaside town - bui do find accommodation first as it is a popular place.

Alternatively if you are prepared to go the long way around (same bus line) try Évora, a small town that has thousands of years of history right there for you. There are direct buses Lagos - Evora until 14 September.

Hi Cubsur

If we were to drive from Lagos to Vila Nova das Milfontes which route would you recommend and is it possible to rake in an Alentejo wine yard during the journey?

Kind regards

From Lagos to Vila Nova Milfontes with a stop at a vineyard only if you go inland to Beja area. Here's some info about wine tourism …turismodeportugal.pt/en/…alentejo
