Explore landmarks such as the Pena Palace, Sintra’s historic center, Cabo da Roca, Cascais and more with informative commentary from your guide.
To start the day, you will be picked up at your hotel/adress to avoid any stress navigating a city that you might not be familiar with.
Leaving Lisbon’s western suburbs and climbing into Sintra feels like crossing
over into another world. This town is in a green mountainscape of palaces,
country estates, parks and a medieval castle. In the centre, the Palace of
Sintra was a residence for the Portuguese royalty, and it’s just one of many
exquisite properties to win you over.
Let your tour guide help you skip the lines, and show you how to avoid crowds.
Another is the enigmatic Quinta da Regaleira, the playground of a wealthy
eccentric, with connections to the freemasons or the Pena Palace and its
fairytale muddle of towers atop a high peak. You can trek through woodland
planted with giant exotic trees in the 19th century. Or carry on to the coast
for beaches beneath sky-scraping cliffs, where you will get the chance to
visit the iconic western most point of Europe, the Roca Cape (Cabo da Roca).
The day will continue with a fantastic drive along side the coast, with the chance to see the local surfers at Guincho, and a stop at the portuguese Riviera, an Amazing fishing village called Cascais, where you'll get the chance to have lunch (own expense) and stroll around the maze of streets at the historical center.
Enjoy a relaxed drive back to Lisbon, as we will drop you at your hotel/adress.
