Starting from $89 USD / Adult
OverviewHide
Embark on a leisurely escape outside the city to experience two of Portugal’s most picturesque treasures. First, head to the fabulous resort town of Cascais. This once sleepy fishing village was transformed into a popular resort escape by European kings and nobility of the early 20th century. With your guide you'll wander through cobbled pedestrian ways dotted with fashionable shops, rustic bars and quaint restaurants. Continues to Sintra, passing the scenic Guincho Beach area, with fine views of the Portuguese countryside and gleaming Atlantic coastline. Arrive in Sintra, a UNESCO World Heritage site, whose history dates to Moorish times. Your guide will point out stunning examples of early European Romantic architecture, including the ceramic tile-faced Royal Palace and its “twin chimneys” reaching into the blue sky. Stop by the emblematic Café Paris for a delicious sampling of local pastries. Then set out on your own for a bit of free time.
