Madrid to Lisbon. Trenhotel Lusitania.
The Trenhotel Lusitania is a nightly night train which runs between Madrid (Chamartin station) and Lisbon in Portugal, via Medina del Campo in Spain, where it joins the Lisbon-bound Sud Express train from Hendaye on the French side of the France-Spain border.
The journey from Madrid to Lisbon takes a leisurely 10 hours (plenty of time to catch up on those clickety-clack night train ZZZZs).
