Relent to the architectural allure of Sintra on a private full-day trip from Lisbon. Alongside your personal Driver/ guide, you’ll marvel at Pena National palace — a vibrant Romantic confection — and admire the exotic plants that thrive in the surrounding gardens. Explore the UNESCO-listed historic center of Sintra village; visit Europe’s westernmost point at Cabo da Roca; and explore the charming coastal town of Cascais independently. On this private tour, you’ll receive undivided attention from your private Driver/guide.
After hotel pickup in a private vehicle, kick off your tour with a visit to the UNESCO-listed Pena National Palace. Reigning resplendent on its hilltop perch, the colourful palace is considered one of Portugal’s finest examples of Romantic architecture.
On arrival at the palace, you’ll embark on a guided tour: delve into Portugal’s regal history as you explore opulent chambers and lush gardens. Then, spend a serene interval exploring the tropical flora of Pena Park, replete with plants from China, Japan and Australia.
Next, proceed to Sintra village — a Romantic architectural feast — and amble along the cobbled streets of the UNESCO-listed historical center. Stop for lunch at a restaurant recommended by your guide, and then, with your appetite appeased, travel to Cabo da Roca.
From Cabo da Roca — Europe’s westernmost point — be dazzled by panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. Gaze at dramatic cliffs carved by crashing waves before continuing to the charming coastal town of Cascais for some relaxed free time.
Your tour concludes with drop-off at your Lisbon hotel after a scenic drive along coastal roads.
