What You Can Expect
Your guide will lead you on a 1,5-hour tour through the famous Pena Palace (Palácio da Pena), a whimsical Romanticist palace that dates back to the 1840s and was a monastery and summer residence of Portuguese kings and queens. Admire the Victorian and Edwardian furniture and the beautiful, detailed decor. See the majestic ballroom and imagine the aristocrats who once danced there in grand dresses and suits. Sneak a peek in the Arab Room, where tremendous paintings cover the walls and ceiling. Then take a walk through the Pena Park and enjoy the royal air while you see the huge variety of trees and exotic plants.
You'll have 20 minutes of free time in Sintra. Spend them by either visiting the Sintra National Palace (Palácio da Vila) or enjoying a cup of good coffee with typical pastries such as “travesseiros” or “queijadas de Sintra”.
Continue your tour to Cabo da Roca (March to October only), a dramatic cliff famous for being Europe's westernmost point. Enjoy the 20-minute break and take pictures of the beautiful landscape and the cape’s small lighthouse.
Your last 10-minute stop is Cascais, a former fishing village and preferred resort for European royals in the early 20th century. Stroll along one of the small beaches before heading back to Lisbon.
Our ship docked at Noon in Lisbon and that gave us enough time to meet our group at 2:00 PM
Our guide was Katharina who was very knowlegeable. We thank her and our driver for a pleasant afternoon and getting a glimpse of Lisbon, Sintra, the Palace and Cascais.
I highly recommend Viator Tours, especially if you have only a short stay.
Excellent tour and value for the price. Guide was extremely well informed and kept the tour moving along at an appropriate pace. Much better tour than the ship could provide not only for the tour itself but at half the price for ships tour of 4 hrs.
