  • Full-day Sintra palace and park tour from Lisbon with a local guide
  • Visit two stunning palaces in the UNESCO World Heritage–listed town of Sintra
  • Tour Pena Palace and marvel at its spectacular architecture
  • Discover Queluz Palace and admire its elegant Throne Room
  • Learn about architecture from different periods such as Gothic and rococo
Embark on a journey to Sintra’s royal palaces as you kick off your guided tour from your central Lisbon hotel. Board an air-conditioned coach and begin a 30-minute drive to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sintra, renowned for its 19th-century Romantic architectural monuments.

Stop first at the 18th-century Queluz Palace, often referred to as the Portuguese Versailles. Gaze over its beautiful gardens layered with detailed fountains and statues as you approach one of Europe’s last Rococo buildings. Enter with your guide and venture through the luxurious Royal Bedroom and grand Throne Room. Stare at the refined domed ceiling and enjoy its rich ambiance.

Then, head to the town of Sintra for a lunch (included if option selected), or enjoy some free time to explore by foot, perhaps stopping at the Sintra Palace at your own expense.

Afterward, rendezvous with your guide and head to the famous Pena Palace, arguably Sintra’s most well known castle. Explore the colorful and eclectic architecture of this storybook palace with your guide. Learn how this palace, erected in honor of King Ferdinand, was designed with characteristics similar to Bavaria’s iconic Neuschwanstein Castle.

Top off the day with a guided walk around Pena Park before departing for central Lisbon where your tour concludes.
