Faro to Lisbon

Travel from Faro to Lisbon

From Faro Airport one would need to get a taxi or bus to the station which is 150m from the Bus station.

Note that the buses only operate about very 90 minutes.

There are three ways to travel between Faro Downtown and Lisbon:


TAP, the national airline is the only operator on the route. There are several flights per day from Faro Airport to Lisbon where there are connecting flights to Porto.

This is usually the most expensive option and not much quicker than train unless you get the very early morning service.

There are often also delays on the route.
