Description

On this half-day private tour of Sintra and Cascais, you will experience the beauty and charm of two of Portugal's most captivating destinations. The tour begins with a pick-up from your hotel in Lisbon and a transfer to the city center of Sintra in a private vehicle. Here, you will have the chance to wander through the charming streets of this old town and take in its rich history and architecture. One of the highlights of the tour is a visit to the stunning Pena Palace, a whimsical structure that blends Moorish and Manueline styles and boasts panoramic views over the coastline of Lisbon. You will learn about the romantic history of the palace and get a sense of what it might have been like to be a member of the Portuguese Royal Family. Next, the tour will take you to Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of continental Europe, where you will have the opportunity to receive a certificate marking the spot where 'the Land Ends and the Sea Begins.' The tour will also take you past the beautiful beaches of Cascais, including the scenic Praia do Guincho, and the 'Devil's Mouth' grotto, created by the crashing of the waves on a rocky bluff. If time allows, you will stop in the elegant resort town of Cascais, a peaceful fishing village that was discovered by European nobles and later became a favorite destination for the international jet set. On the return journey to Lisbon, you will drive along the stunning Atlantic coast.
