Day trip or overnight in Winter

Hi

Is it possible to cover Pena palace, Moorish Castle and Azenhas do Mar in one day? Since there are 4 of us, is it more economical to take a tuk tuk to go around or bus 434?

I have click on the link for tickets https:/… but it seems only till 27 Oct 2018. Any advice on what is their opening hours in mid-december please?

To & fro Lisbon - Sintra, which is the earliest time we should depart and return in order to maximise the day?

Thanks

Is it possible to cover Pena palace, Moorish Castle and Azenhas do Mar in one day? Yes, but from Sintra to Azenhas do Mar only by taxi, there are buses, but the schedules will not be very convenient.

is it more economical to take a tuk tuk to go around or bus 434? Forget a tuk-tuk in winter, take a taxi and negociate with it, both the Pena/Castle and Azenhas ride.

but it seems only till 27 Oct 2018 - yes, they will change the prices and schedules from this day on. The opening it will be at 10am.

Arrive to Sintra around 9:30am, in winter it will be night by 5:30pm (if it's a sunny day) so plan a day in Sintra from 9:30am till 5pm.

Thank you so much for the quick reply. May I ask what kind of price should I be expecting for a taxi ride?

To do all that Sintra, Pena, Azenhas and back? Sorry have no idea, but think about a private tour/driver for almost a full day....

Curious how many things, if any, would be open in Azenhas do Mar during the winter. Is it worth a stay? We have time in our itinerary
