In Sintra, fairy tale palaces are scattered among lush green mountains — even though the scenery is stunning, the rugged terrain makes visiting all of Sintra’s landmarks difficult. On this 8-hour tour from Lisbon, you'll visit three of Sintra’s most popular palaces and explore a UNESCO-listed historical center. Discover Pena National Palace, the National Palace of Sintra and the Palace of Queluz and enjoy relaxed free time for lunch.
At your Lisbon hotel, board an air-conditioned Mercedes vehicle and connect to the free onboard Wi-Fi. During the drive to Sintra, admire lush greenery and listen to commentary from your guide.
Your first destination is the 18th-century Palace of Queluz, a regal residence commissioned by King Pedro III. Here, you’ll see examples of Baroque, Rococo and neoclassical architecture.
Spend free time exploring the UNESO-listed center of Sintra before reconvening with your guide for a tour of the National Palace of Sintra, a palace shrouded in a thousand years’ worth of history.
Follow recommendations provided by your guide for lunch (own expense) before travelling to your final landmark — Pena National Palace, a dazzling confection of color perched atop Sintra mountain. Marvel at the lemon yellow domes and pastel pink towers of the 19th-century Romantic palace as you explore its opulent interior.
Conclude your tour with drop-off at your Lisbon hotel.
