Can't find any coaches....the Morocco coach site linked from Eurolines is down at the moment, might work for you later. www.eurolines.com

Both TAP and Royal Air Maroc fly the route at reasonable cost.

www.skyscanner.net will give you cheapest fares for your dates.

Have a look at http://www.eurolines.es and you can get times for the coaches that start from ALGECIRAS to Lisbon. Getting to Algeciras is question of going possibly by train from Casa to Tanger then taking the ferry over. There are 'fast' ferries that take about 1 1/2 hours and cost about €20.
Using this route you could leave Casa after 9am in the morning and take an overnight bus from Algeciras reaching Lisbon following morning.
Long and possibly tedious coach trip but the rest of the journey would be ok.

I am not personally aware of a straight through coach CASA to LISBON but you never know.

Taking a direct flight is quick but costly. Unfortunately Ryanair and Easyjet do not fly this route.
As a mater of interest, Ryanair has advertised flights from FES to Seville & Madrid. Fez can of course also be reached by train from Casa in about 4 hours.

Another alternative is to look at Easyjet who fly from Casa to Madrid then see if there is any cheap MAD-LIS flight?

There isn't. It's quite strange. Nor there is any direct ferry link between Morroco and Portugal.
I was in Morroco in 2004. The Moroccan Eurolines does not work with the Portuguese counterpart.

As said before, getting to Algeciras from Casa is not a problem. Just take a train. Trains in Morocco are ok. In Algeciras it's possible to go by bus via Alsa/Eurolines with a changeover in Seville.
Aníbal, a Spanish bus company used to have a ride from Malaga to Lisbon, via Algeciras, Cadiz and Badajoz, but they cancelled it. I've heard that there was a lot of pressure to cancel this service, and this company made a law suit against unfair competition in Spain.

In Algeciras, be careful with the Spanish police as well. When I later went to Gibraltar, the police was doing some kind of persecution against Portuguese people there. They claim that the Portuguese bring a lot of drugs from Morocco (as if people from other countries wouldn't do that !!!). They often detain people in Algeciras, and if someone is coming from the other side, there is a lot of suspition that he may carry hash in his stomach.

As said before, there are direct flights, but it's not that cheap. Last time I checked prices it was about 300 euros a trip. Maybe it's cheaper now, don't know.

BAIRRO ALTO

by LysDor

Laid out in the 16th century, its name means literally "high quarter". It was the first district to have straight streets. Nowadays it looks like a maze where you probably will think first you don´t want to get lost during the night.

However, it´s relatively quiet, but only during day time. At night this area becomes a night life scenenery with many clubs, bars and local restaurants worth to get lost!
Get to Bairro Alto and Chiado by using this nearly 100 years old Elevador de Santa Justa....Art Nouveau?

Chiado was at the end of the 19th century, a fashionable meeting place for intellectuals such as Fernando Pessoa, Almada Negreiros and Eça de Queiroz.
Their most famous haunt was the café "A Brasileira" (see below at restaurants tips), which is still today favoured by the city's art students.

Bairro da Sé

by solopes

Folkloric Lisbon rely on the rivalry between its traditional quarters or "Bairros". For a foreigner it's impossible to distinguish differences between most of them. For instance, the "Bairro da Sé" next to Alfama or S Vicente, shows the same ambiance, and the same look of narrow streets, stairs, and ramps, with clothes hanging from many windows, despite the general forbidding. Well, when June 13Th comes and marches compete, everything turns different.

Benfica-Stadium of light

by conhe

This has got to be one of the best football stadiums in the world.Benfica's "Estadio da Luz-Stadium of Light".Built in 2003, it hosted Euro 2004's epic matches between Portugal and England and the final of the tournament, Portugal versus Greece, wich we sadly lost.It also hosts the best football club in Portugal, Benfica. If you're planning to watch Benfica play, don't forget to take a Benfica jersey.You can buy one in Benfica's megastore on the stadium.
