Itinerary

A place full of luxurious palaces, history and tradition is awaiting your arrival. Start a unique journey that will take you from Lisbon to some of the most wonderful places to visit in Portugal. Come along so you won’t miss a thing!

Our trip starts on the Rossio (popular name for the King Pedro IV Square), where our expert guide will pick you up. There, the bus will take you all around the city showing the most interesting places, such as the Sintra National Palace, which will be our first stop.

This is one of the most popular places to see, since its two chimneys are crowning the skyview all over the city. Declared UNESCO World Heritage, this amazing castle goes back straight to the Arab occupation of the peninsula, but it suffered through reformations in the 15th century that changed deeply. Even so, this castle still preserves some of the oldest and most impressive ‘azulejos’ of all the country.

This castle is full of luxurious decorations and impressive stances, such as the Swan Room where the banquets were hosted, an amazing room with gorgeous paintings all over the place. Another impressive place is the Coats-of-Arms room, where you’ll be able to get fascinated by the amazing aluejos that are exposed there in white and blue.

We will also discover the Royal Chapel, a jewel that withstood the test of time, and displays an amazing artwork that deserves a full visit. Another necessary stop is the palace kitchen, where the two chimneys of the castle display their attractiveness.

But the Royal Castle is not the only place to visit in this cozy city, this precious place has a lot to offer. We’ll visit the ruins of the Castle of the Moors, with twelve centuries of history, we’ll walk through the cobbled streets of the historic center, and we’ll also visit the Monserrate Palace, and we’ll even have time to freely roam and discover the city however you want!

Enjoy the local gastronomy and discover the best places of the city, just before we continue. But this trip is not complete unless you’ll get to visit Cascais, so grab your seatbelts because we’re continuing our trip!

This gorgeous city has a long history and an endless amount of constructions and monuments of immeasurable value, and is chosen by the nobility as the perfect vacance destination. Precisely because of this, our first stop will be at the spring house of the monarchs, known as the Citadel of Cascais and custodied by the imperial walls, is an amazing residence that will show us the luxurious side of the city.

We’ll also wander through the city, where we’ll see the historic center and walk by the seafront. Fancy the beach and St Mary's Lighthouse, take a photo on the red giant hand, and discover all of the enjoyable places. Live a unique experience in this little fishing village.

Go back to Lisbon after a wondrous visit to the outskirts and end your trip with the best memories of Portugal. Come along and live an amazing experience. Don't miss it!
