Overview Location: Lisbon, Portugal
Sintra and Cascais are small villages just outside of Lisbon, and they’re the real “must-do” tour when visiting Lisbon. Located in a beautiful protected area, the Sintra Hills are the home of some of the most beautiful Palaces and Castles.

The most iconic among them is the Pena Palace, which you’ll visit early in the morning. It is considered the most beautiful Castle in Europe, and it’s a true pleasure to walk in its Park, or just admire the views from its balconies, with Lisbon in the horizon.

At the cosy Sintra Village, which looks just like a postcard town, you’ll have time to taste the local pastries, check some souvenirs or just enjoy the ambience there. Afterwards, you’ll head to the Roca Cape (Cabo da Roca), the westernmost piece of land in Europe, through the narrow roads in the hills, where not many people pass.

From Roca Cape, you’ll be heading to Lisbon always along the coast, enjoying amazing views over the ocean, first, and the Tagus River, arriving in Lisbon. In the way, there will be time to stop at Cascais, the once fishing village that turned into home of kings in exile, and one of the espionage centers during World War II. Cascais is now a pleasant beach town, where people walk the streets while enjoying the sun.
