Arrive in Sintra and explore the town’s cobbled roads and imagine carriages clopping past local shops and elegant estates. Then, learn about the Portuguese royalty who vacationed during summers here long ago.
Continue with your guide up the hill to Pena Palace and see the 19th century castle that commands panoramic views of Sintra. Admire its fairytale-like architecture exemplifying an abundance of eclectic and Romanticist styles.
Next, coast down from Pena Palace and voyage to the popular town of Cascais. Take a break here and enjoy a refreshing beverage at a local café or stroll around a bit soaking up the town’s charm. Lastly, cruise along the Estoril Coast and capture breathtaking views of the Atlantic. On your return drive to Lisbon, gaze out towards golden beaches and see the elegant gardens of Casino Estoril.
