ShoreTrips says...

This is the perfect tour for those who wish to see the best that Lisbon has to offer, as well as Sintra and the Estoril Coast.

Your tour begins in Lisbon, where you will see the city's main sites, including St. George Castle (and its surrounding quarter) and Alfama, Lisbon's oldest quarter. You'll also pay a visit to the well-preserved 16th century Belem district, where you will find monuments related to the Portuguese Golden period, linked with the heroic deeds of the Portuguese maritime exploration in the 15th and 16th centuries. This was the Age of Discoveries and the Golden Era of Portugal, transforming Lisbon into the opulent center of a vast empire. Finally, make sure to check out the traditional commercial downtown, which was totally rebuilt in the 18th century following a huge earthquake.

Of course, it is said that any visitor to Lisbon must also visit the romantic town of Sintra, Portugal's ex-libris, classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Enjoy a scenic drive as your guide imparts his knowledge of the history and the land surrounding Lisbon as you make your way to Sintra. Sintra is a mix of natural and manmade beauty: fantasy castles set amid exotic tropical plants, lush green valleys, and craggy hilltops with hazy views of Lisbon and the Atlantic. Take a walk through the typical historical center, accompanied by your guide.

Your journey continues to Cascais. Once just a small fishing village, this town managed to maintain its seafaring traditions while melding with the aristocratic and royal presences of the late 19th and early 20th century. Passing through its animated town center, you’ll find the cosmopolitan life side-by-side with the Atlantic.

From this area you'll also have a great view of the Estoril Casino and its gardens. Your guide will take you on a sightseeing tour along the coastal road of Estoril, one of the most beautiful and charming itineraries of all the Lisbon surroundings.

As you return to Lisbon along the elegant Estoril Coast, you will already be planning your return trip to this incredible area!
