ShoreTrips says...

The epitome of Portugal's royal atmosphere, Sintra and the Estoril Coast offer more than just the finest beaches in the country. With colorful architecture, lively museums and breathtaking art, this area is perfect for those wanting a culturally rich experience while also enjoying incredible views of the Atlantic's turquoise water.

You'll begin your journey with a scenic drive through Portugal's coastal mountain range that overlooks the ocean. Hiding behind each turn are luxurious royal palaces, chalets and aristocratic homes that showcase Portugal's gorgeous architectural styles and colors. Although your driver is not a licensed guide, he/she can give you some limited information about the area.

Once in the romantic, historically rich city of Sintra - a UNESCO World Heritage Site you don't want to miss - you will take a short walk in the city center that will lead you to charming artisan and pastry shops settled in converted houses once occupied by prominent Portuguese families. Capture classic, local flavors over a relaxing lunch break in a traditional restaurant before continuing on to the picturesque town of Cascais.

Once just a small fishing village, this town embraced its maritime traditions while fusing with the aristocratic and royal presences of the late 19th and early 20th century. It's hard not to compare Cascais to a seaside watercolor painting with its golden cliffs, dreamy beaches and wise fisherman. Walking through the town today, you'll experience a bustling center where urban excitement meets the Atlantic coast!

You will be dreaming of your next trip back to this gorgeous area as you return to Lisbon along the wondrous Estoril Coast!
