Full description
After you leave the meeting point you will take the highway to Mafra, where you can visit the largest Palace of Portugal, built in the 18th Century by the megalomaniac King D. João V.

In Mafra, you can also visit the Tapada Nacional created in the mid-18th Century as a park for King João V and his court. In the Tapada, besides the rich flora, there are many different species of animals, such as deer, wild boar, foxes, partridges and various types of birds, including the endangered Bonelli's Eagle. Surrounded by a 21 kilometer, three-hundred-year-old wall, the park has a small Rural Tourism house, the former Real Chalet de Caça, and two museums.

From Mafra, you will continue to Ericeira, where you can have lunch and try the excellent fresh fish of the day! After lunch, there is nothing better than a walk in the village so that you can see where the Royals embarked into exile in England in 1910. Ericeira also has beaches of excellent quality such as Praia da Foz do Lizandro, Praia de São Lourenço, Praia de São Sebastião or Praia da Ribeira d'Ilhas, which is internationally renowned for surfing and bodyboarding. 

Finally, you will return to Lisbon, just in time for a nap and a shower before hitting the city for a nice dinner followed by (probably lots of...) drinks in Bairro Alto and Príncipe Real!
