    Change in reply by Jeff to Hi Kathy,<br /><br />There are two ways to travel from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/seville/index.html" rel="nofollow">Seville</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/portugal/lisbon/index.html" rel="nofollow">Lisbon</a>.<br /><br /><b><u>Lisbon to Seville (via Faro)</u></b><br /><br />The first option would involve taking a bus from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/seville/index.html" rel="nofollow">Seville</a> to Faro in the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/portugal/the-algarve/index.html" rel="nofollow">Algarve region</a> on the southern coast of <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/portugal/index.html" rel="nofollow">Portugal</a> and then a train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/faro-to-lisbon.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/faro-to-lisbon.html">Faro up to Lisbon</a>.<br /><br />The bus service from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/seville/index.html" rel="nofollow">Seville</a> to Faro is operated by 'Eva Bus' and 'DAMAS'. We aren't able to issue tickets for these buses, so you would have to try going directly through the vendor.<br /><br />If you go with this option, it would also be important to point out that the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/faro-to-lisbon.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/faro-to-lisbon.html">Faro-Lisbon</a> trains require seat reservations in addition to the tickets that we'd issue. However, the reservation portion is only able to be purchased locally at the station. Therefore, to purchase the seat reservation, you would just go to the ticket window in the station and be sure to mention that you've already purchased the ticket. The trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/faro-to-lisbon.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/faro-to-lisbon.html">Faro to Lisbon</a> are 'InterCity' (IC) and 'Alfa Pendular' (AP) trains.<br /><br />You would purchase tickets for the train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/faro-to-lisbon.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/faro-to-lisbon.html">Faro to Lisbon</a> by searching the route under 'Find Train Tickets' right on the homepage of our website, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>. Tickets from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/faro-to-lisbon.html" rel="nofollow">Faro to Lisbon</a> can only be booked once within 60 days of an intended date of departure.<br /><br /><b><u>Seville to Lisbon (via Madrid)</u></b><br /><br />The second option would have you taking a high-speed '<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/ave/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow">AVE</a>' or '<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/alvia/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/alvia/how-to-book.html">Alvia</a>' train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/seville-to-madrid.html" rel="nofollow">Seville to Madrid</a>, where you would switch to the 'Lusitania' night train that would take you to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/portugal/lisbon/index.html" rel="nofollow">Lisbon</a>.<br /><br />For these trains, you would purchase tickets by searching the route under 'Find Train Tickets' on <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/index.html">our homepage</a> and breaking up your search in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/index.html">Madrid</a>. Therefore, you would do one search for the segment from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/seville-to-madrid.html" rel="nofollow">Seville to Madrid</a> and then another search to access the overnight train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/madrid-to-lisbon.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/madrid-to-lisbon.html">Madrid to Lisbon</a>.<br /><br />Generally, the trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/seville-to-madrid.html" rel="nofollow">Seville to Madrid</a> and the night train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/madrid-to-lisbon.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/madrid-to-lisbon.html">Madrid to Lisbon</a> can only be booked once within 90 days of an intended date of departure.<br /><br />Please note, the 'Lusitania' overnight train is the only passenger train that operates along the rail line between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/index.html">Madrid</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/portugal/lisbon/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/portugal/lisbon/index.html">Lisbon</a>.<br /><br />When searching the connection from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/seville/index.html" rel="nofollow">Seville</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/portugal/lisbon/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/portugal/lisbon/index.html">Lisbon</a> (<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/seville-to-madrid.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/seville-to-madrid.html">Seville to Madrid</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/madrid-to-lisbon.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/madrid-to-lisbon.html">Madrid to Lisbon</a>), you will see that trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/seville-to-madrid.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/seville-to-madrid.html">Seville to Madrid</a> arrive into the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/train-station/atocha-train-station.html" rel="nofollow">Atocha station</a> in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/index.html">Madrid</a>, while the night train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/madrid-to-lisbon.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/madrid-to-lisbon.html">Madrid to Lisbon</a> departs out of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/train-station/madrid-chamartin-train-station.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/train-station/madrid-chamartin-train-station.html">Chamartin station</a>.
