Prepare your intellectual spirit and adventurous soul. Let Sintra Mountain embrace you on this fully guided day trip from Lisbon. Hiking, History, Romance, Pastries, Ocean and Fun, all mixed in a magic blender. Our first stop will be at Pena Palace, where we'll escape the crowds of the main entrance by taking a different way than the one used my most of the travellers. We'll explore Sintra nature with a soft hike in park until the palace. We'll then explore the most beautiful terraces, architecture and history of Pena Palace. For us, the most beautiful is the outside and we don't plan to visit the crowded rooms inside unless we have bad weather conditions. Around lunchtime, we will stop at the Sintra Old Town, close to the National Royal Sintra Palace, where you'll have free time to eat and discover the old town. We'll also visit the mystical Quinta da Regaleira, a scenographic park inviting you to a symbolic initiation journey. We'll explore fountains, caves, the Initiation Well, a labyrinth of secret tunnels and the palace. Along the walks we will share all our love for this mountain, giving you a reliable source of information and local knowledge. The 'cherry on top' of this day trip, is the stop by the ocean at Cabo da Roca, discovering some of the coastline secrets along the way. An experience for all, suitable for single travellers, groups or families. Notes: Pick up at Bessa Hotel Liberdade Meals and monuments tickets are not included
