Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to Lisbon is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of car and train. You'll gain 3 hours traveling from Jeddah to Lisbon due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much colder weather when traveling from Jeddah in May: high temperatures in Lisbon hover around 28°C and lows are around 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Faro.
