Recommendation North of the Tagus: Although there is still no high speed train for the journey between Lisbon and Braga (including Porto), the train remains the most convenient and fastest means of transport. Train tickets can be bought at automatic ticket machines.

South of the Tagus: Especially for the Algarve, the bus has been the means of transport favoured by most. However, since 2005, the railway has grown to cross the Tagus and ensures good links with the south of the country.
