Full description

Discover architectural and culinary marvels on this guided tour from Lisbon. Escape the big city bustle for Sintra, Colares, and Cascais. After visiting palaces and charming villages, taste the highlights of southern Portuguese cuisine. Finish the day on a sweeping bay before the drive back to Lisbon.

Start the tour at Praça dos Restauradores in Lisbon. Settle into the private van and relax on the way to the outskirts of the city. Once in the town of Sintra, follow your guide up to the Pena Palace. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the palace took inspiration from Islamic and Romantic architectural styles.

From Sintra, head towards the foothills and the Atlantic coast. Stop off in Colares. On a cliff overlooking the ocean, the village is a popular destination. It’s well-known for its wine and cuisine. Meet up with a guide who’ll show you some of the local eateries. Find a new favorite dish. 

Finish the day with a trip to Cascais. Listen to stories about the town while following your guide. Learn about the former citadel that stands by the town’s marina. Stroll on the beaches along the bay and soak up the last rays of the sun before heading back to Lisbon.
