Sud Expresso

The Sud Expresso international train gets you to the centres of the cities in the early morning.

With daily departures from Lisbon to Hendaye and vice-versa, the Sud Expresso, is a night service that lets you sleep, organise work and enjoy the on-board meals in the eating car.

The Sud Expresso connects up with the French high-speed train – "TGV-Atlantique" which runs between the Spanish border and Paris. There is also an Interregional connection to and from the north of the country between Oporto Campanhã/Coimbra B/Oporto Campanhã.

You can opt for berths in compartments for 1, 2 or 4 people, or seats in the tourist class saloon cars.
