Begin your tour with a hotel pickup and head out on your tour of Sintra, just 30 minutes outside of Lisbon.

Start your tour of Sintra at Pena Palace which showcases the Romanticist style of architecture from the 19th century. Learn all about the palace and surrounding areas with informative insights from your guide before heading down to the quaint village of Sintra. Enjoy a short walk around town while peeping into local shops and pastry shops.

The 17th-century building of Quinta da Regaleira is next on the tour with its secret caves and lush gardens. Afterwards, take a quick break to absorb the scenery or walk on the beach.

Visit the most western point of Europe, Cabo da Roca, and enjoy a coastal road trip passing through Estoril and the fishing village of Cascais before heading back to your Lisbon hotel.
