Lisbon to Seville

The simplest way is by bus (they run every day), which takes seven or eight hours. Finding the Lisbon-Seville timetable on the ALSA homepage (ALSA is the company that runs them, and it’s Spanish) is a bit complicated though, or maybe I’m just thick. Anyway, go to their homepage - http://www.alsa.es/portal/site/Alsa/ - and (because it forces you to say you’re starting from Spain), say that you’re going FROM Seville TO Lisbon, and then say you want the RETURN option. That should show not only the timetable from Seville to Lisbon, which you’re not interested in, but also the timetable from Lisbon to Seville, which is what you want.

Explore Lisbon by bus

Lisbon has an extensive bus network which can be very useful for getting to outlying areas and attractions. Like the trams, the buses are also operated by the company Carris.

There are quite a few possibilities for tickets. I bought a so called "7 colinas card" (7 hills card) for 0,50 Euro. This card can be credited with a dayticket for metro, trams and buses which costs 3,20 Euro (2006).

There are also other fares which can be loaded onto the card, so always keep the card with you. These sort of tickets are available from Carris kiosks (e.g. at Praca da Figueira).

Lisbon - Sightseeing bus

If your time in Lisbon is limited, and especially if you want to see more of the city's surroundings, you may want to consider a tour.

There are tour operators which will offer hop-on hop-off tours of the city.
Usually they run every 30 min and visit the most interesting and attractive sights (12-20 sights). A complete turn takes usually 1:30 h and in rush days maybe you should book in advance.
Usually they offer English, French, and German translations (but have booklets in other languages)

http://www.cityline-sightline.pt
15€ - 1 day; 22€ - 2 days (children half price)

Lisbon - Bus

Lisbon has a good bus network connection which runs daily from 5-6am to 1am. There are some night buses running in the busiest areas. The times between buses depends from: the line, the time of the day, if it is weekday or weekend so you have to see the schedule before either at the bus stop or online www.carris.pt.

To get on buses use only the front door and validate your 7 Colinas (7 hills) or ZAPPING card at the little yellow machine behind the driver. If you don’t have a valid ticket you can buy it directly from the driver (which will cost you much more). To stop the bus you have to press the button before.
Price
The “7 Colinas” card is a contact-free card on which multimodal tickets can be credited. The journeys cover the Carris and underground networks and was created for passengers using the system from time to time and allows for crediting in a way which is better suited to individual needs.
"ZAPPING" is a multimodal ticket. You can load money on your card, enabling you to make trips both on Carris or Metro, as long as you have enough money on the card. The card can be bought on all Carris and Metro concessionaries or Post Office Stations and Payshop agents, and has a price of 0.50 € and is rechargeable. The minimum value to load is 1,50 € and the maximum 10,00 €. For trips with Carris, the price is 0,81€ and is valid for all Carris transports during 1 hour. If you buy the ticket from the driver: 1,40€ per ride.

More info @ www.carris.pt where you can simulate the trip at their webpage

From the airport to the city centre

There are various options to get from the airport to the city centre. I decided on the Aero-Bus, which is the airport bus with the number 91.

It serves the route to the city centre with several stops in between every 20 minutes.

The trip takes only about 45 minutes and costs 3 Euro (2006).

The advantage of the Aero-Bus is that the ticket is valid for the rest of the day on any other bus and tram which is operated by Carris, the local public transportation company. It is not valid on the Metro.

Other options to get into town are the local buses #44 and #45 which go to Restauradores or just take a Taxi.
