After CF, I will visit Lisbon, then Seville.

There are 2 alternatives of transportation: 1) direct night bus to Seville, or 2) night bus to Caceres (21:30-03:15), and half-day visit at Caceres, then take bus to Seville.

My questions are:
1) Is it popular for people to take night bus fm Lisbon to Caceres?
2) Is Caceres worth visiting half day, or better 1 night stay?

If anyone could share his/her experience for the above questions?
Thank you very much.

Ps. Last time I have taken bus fm Seville to Lisbon via Faro. This time I am considering to change route via Caceres.

I’ll be interested in this one too. My wife is at a conference in Lisbon and wanted to go to Seville . She is looking into transport options. She said the reviews of the Lisbon to Seville overnight aren’t that great.

I don't know about the buses, but Caceres is definitely worth visiting. I took a day off there last year.

Just for your wife’s information.

I also recommend Cáceres. Here's a video I shot there of a busker to get you in the mood!

Caceres is a wonderful, beautiful, interesting city at least 2000 years old, worth at least a day,

Personally I would never arrive in a city at 03.15 in the morning in the dark, possibility few taxies to get you to all-night hotel. I would always take the daytime bus, with the added advantage that you can see the scenary

Hi, Keith,
I have taken the day bus from Lisbon to Sevilla when I walked the Vdlp years ago, and it was an all day drudgery. With a long stop in a highway cafeteria. I think TAP flies there now, and that would be my first choice. It is also not a bad drive, but having a car in Sevilla is a liability.
