Overview
Visit the town of Sintra, just outside Lisbon and known for its UNESCO World Heritage–listed cultural landscape, on this day trip with private transportation. Soak up the Romantic architecture of the village, and check out landmarks like Pena Palace, the Castle of the Moors and Palace of Queluz. This tour includes a driver but no guide.
What to Expect
Your driver will transport you from Lisbon to Sintra, one of Portugal’s most beautiful villages, known as the capital of Romanticism. Stop at the 18th-century Palace of Queluz, once the official royal residence of King D. Pedro IV. Make your way into the historic village of Sintra, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Wander along its picturesque streets, and see Sintra National Palace, fountains, churches, chapels, and shrines.

Climb to the hilltop Moorish Castle, which contains sections of wall that date from the 8th and 9th centuries. From this elevated spot, enjoy stunning views of the whole region. Next, stop at Pena Palace, one of the premiere examples of 19th-century Romanticism. Admire its mix of architectural styles, and snap photos of the striking landscape that surrounds the palace.

Journey to the westernmost point of continental Europe, admiring clifftop views over beaches and the Atlantic. Hug the coastal road while passing through the seaside towns of Estoril and Cascais. On your return trip, stop to enjoy the famous Gincho’s sand dunes on a beach known as a prime surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing spot.

Conclude your trip with a visit to the charming coastal town of Cascais. A former fishing village, this town became a vacation spot for royal families and now attracts elite travelers who come to partake in its stylish boutiques, restaurants, hotels, beaches, and more. Relax as your driver transports you back to Lisbon.
