Full description
Discover a glorious “Garden of Eden” on a full-day tour of Sintra, a paradise resort of fairytale palaces and ornate architecture just outside Lisbon. Discover why this charming village delighted poets, artists, and authors, including Hans Christian Andersen and Lord Byron.

Your tour includes a look inside Pena Palace, designed in a magnificent mix of Manueline and Moorish styles. Learn how its exotic and eclectic profusion of styles follows the rules of Romanticism.

Pass the Castle of the Moors and enjoy breathtaking views from its towers. Go to the bewildering palace and estate of the flamboyant Quinta da Regaleira, and see the palaces of Seteais and Monserrate, surrounded by sub-tropical plants and vegetation.

Next, drive to Cabo da Roca at the westernmost point of mainland Europe. Look at the wild Atlantic Ocean from Guincho Beach, and keep your eyes open for surfers on the waves of the Estoril Coast. Stop in the former fishing village of Cascais, now part of the Portuguese Riviera and a place of exile for European royalty.

Head back to Lisbon along the “Marginal” road, following the Atlantic to see white sand beaches and magnificent 17th-century forts.
