Lisbon, Sintra, Cabo da Roca, Cascais: Private 2 Days Tour

1. Lisbon, Sintra, Cabo da Roca, Cascais: Private 2 Days Tour

Start with a pickup from your hotel for a private tour to some of the most important sights of Lisbon. Begin the tour at Eduardo VII Park, one of Lisbon's best viewpoints. Continue to downtown Baixa passing by the Marquês de Pombal roundabout, Avenida da Liberdade, Restauradores, Rossio, and Praça do Comércio. End this part of the visit at the Portas do Sol viewpoint with the Tagus River at your feet. Head to the Belem district, where the Age of Discovery was set in motion. Be amazed by the Tower of Belém and the Jeronimos Monastery. Visit one of the oldest pastry shops in Portugal to taste a famous Pastel de Belém. Explore the Expo98 territory where modernity meets the city and invites you to have a glance at 21st-century architectural masterpieces. Journey to Sintra, Cabo da Roca, and Cascais from your hotel. After a short trip from Lisbon to Sintra, you will get the full Pena Palace experience. This palace seats on top of the Sintra Mountain and offers magnificent views of all the surrounding territory. Stop at the historical center of Sintra and admire the Town Palace and the Moorish Castle. While visiting some of the narrow alleys, visit the Piriquita pastry shop to taste a delicious Travesseiro de Sintra. Cross the Mountain of Sintra, home to the Natural Park of Sintra Cascais. Reach Cabo da Roca and feel the fullness of nature as you stand on the most western point of Continental Europe facing the Atlantic Ocean on top of a 460 feet high cliff. Finally, stop in Cascais, a former fishing village with a special flair. Throughout the tour, your local guide will accompany you on a unique experience always willing to meet your needs and share Lisbon citizens' culture and lifestyle.

Lisbon: Private Full-Day Chauffeur Driven Tour

2. Lisbon: Private Full-Day Chauffeur Driven Tour

Enjoy a chauffeur driven tour of Lisbon, traveling by luxury car on a full-day tour tailored to your schedule. Following a hotel pick-up, a good place to start is the historical area of Belém, where Lisbon’s most symbolic monuments are located. Visit the Jeronimos Monastery and Belém Tower, renowned examples of Lisbon’s architectural beauty. Nearby, you'll want to try some sweet Pastéis de Belém, a kind of custard tart made to a well kept secret recipe. Next, explore Downtown Lisbon to learn how it was completely rebuilt in a classical style after the terrible earthquake of 1755 that destroyed the city. Right in front of the river is the famous Praça do Comércio, one of the most beautiful squares in Europe. After some free time for lunch at one of the many fine restaurants in the city (your driver will give recommendations), go to Alfama, the oldest quarter of Lisbon. Visit St. George’s Castle for panoramic views across the city. By contrast, the modern quarter of Lisbon at Parque das Nações is a lesson in urban regeneration. The former industrial neighborhood underwent a major transformation when it was chosen as the location for the Expo 98 (World Exposition). Today, it is a privileged zone of the city, with beautiful river views, green spaces, and a wide variety of facilities, including a casino, shopping mall, marina, cable car, and the stunning Lisbon Oceanarium, the largest in Europe.

Very interesting different bus lines. You can see a lot of the surrounding city of Lisbon. Unfortunately we only managed the Belem tour. You could spend a whole day with the lines.

De route is zo gemaakt dat je de meeste bezienswaardigheden een keertje aan de enen kant van de bus ziet en een keertje aan de andere kant.
