Sintra Small Group Tour from Lisbon
From US$69.60
Overview
The fairy-tale palaces of Sintra are an absolute must-see when visiting Lisbon. Travel between the dispersed UNESCO World Heritage Sites with ease on this day trip, which includes convenient hotel pickup and drop-off, as well as transportation in a coach equipped with Wi-Fi. Stop at Pena National Palace, Quinta da Regaleira, and the historic center of Sintra, none of which are serviced by public transport. Plus, a more intimate experience is guaranteed in a small group limited to eight.
What to Expect

Your day trip begins with morning hotel pickup in Lisbon. Board a coach destined for the glorious palaces of Sintra. During the journey, your guide provides an important overview of the area’s history.

The first stop is Pena National Palace, a glorious confection of lemon-yellow domes and pastel-pink towers. Following a tour of the landmark, head to Quinta Regaleira, enter to explore this beautiful estate.

The tour culminates in the historic center of Sintra. You also get a chance to explore the center on your own free time. On the return journey to Lisbon, stop at Cabo da Roca and then Cascais before being dropped off at your Lisbon hotel.
