Day Trip from Lisbon:

Sintra & Cascais

Begin the day with a visit to Sintra, the fairy tale, medieval hillside town and former king’s paradise due to its cooler climate and lush vegetation. Spend the morning exploring the Monserrate palace, the beautiful, palatial villa and previous summer resort of the Portuguese court. It is known for its picturesque park that contains a plethora of greenery and exotic plants and species. Though lesser known than other palaces in the area such as the Pena palace, we prefer a visit here due to its more intimate and exclusive feel.

Afterwards, you have an optional fresh, seaside, seafood lunch at one of our favorite local restaurants with stunning sea views. Drive along the coast of the Guincho beach before reaching Cascais, a summer resort built by the Portuguese royal family in the late 19th century and still showing its connection to its past as a fisherman’s village. After visiting Cascais, your guide and driver leave you back in Lisbon to conclude the day.
