You will visit the famous and iconic Pena Palace, perched atop the Sintra mountains and spend time visiting the emblematic and diverse Sintra historic center, sampling, if willing to, its two local pastries, admiring from up close the oldest palace in Portugal and, perhaps, sitting down for a meal or snack at Café Paris or any other bistro/tavern of which there are plenty of.
The afternoon leg of the tour will take you off the grid a little bit, to visit the now famous and unique in the world sandy soil vineyards, where the Malvasia and Ramisco varieties are farmed in a unique and ancient way. On to the Colares Regional Winery for the sampling, which will be guided and explained, with every detail, from pressing to staging, covered.
The most westerly point on the European mainland follows, Cabo da Roca, with walk-around time and plenty of great photoshoot spots.
Last but not least, you will be driven to Cascais, the famous resort town where the monarchs and aristocrats from all corners of Europe dwelt in, via Guincho Beach and Cabo Raso, to spend time walking down the promenade, window shopping or actually shopping and, why not, having the famous Santini gelatos.
The drive back to Lisbon will be all along the shoreline, easy and “sparing the horses,” taking in the Lisbon beaches and more than likely marveling at the ever-present surfers plying their trade which is, basically, all year round.
We suggest bringing comfortable clothing, sunglasses, a hat and your camera.
