When you arrive in Sintra, your guide will give you the lay of the land, answer your questions and tell you the must-see sights, including the gorgeous Sintra National Palace (Palácio da Vila) and the whimsical Pena Palace (Palácio da Pena), famous for its Romanticist architecture. You’ll have two hours of free time to explore on your own and visit the attractions that interest you.
After your two hours, continue your tour to Cabo da Roca (20-minute break in March to October only), a cliff famous for being mainland Europe's westernmost point. Take pictures of the beautiful landscape and the cape’s small lighthouse.
On the way to your last stop, Cascais, a former fishing village and preferred resort for European royals in the early 20th century, keep your eyes open, and you’ll be rewarded with views of the coast and beautiful Guincho Beach. In Cascais, enjoy your 10-minute break, stroll along one of the small beaches and enjoy the sea views before heading back to Lisbon.

I CAN UNDERSTAND WHY THIS TOUR IS ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR. A VERY NICE LITTLE PLACE IN THE CENTER OF THE OLD TOWN.THE NATIONAL PALACE IN SINTRA WAS WELL WORTH VISITING.IT'S TOO BAD WE WERE NOT ABLE TO VISIT THE PALACIO DE PENA WITH ITS VARIED STYLES. CABO DA ROCA WAS INTERESTING TO SEE AS THE MOST WESTERN POINT. IT CAN GET QUITE STORMY AS THE BLOWN OVER LIGHTTOWER INDICATES.
