Lisbon and Sintra in one day

If you don't have so much time but you can see as much as possible, this is the tour.
We will do a panoramic tour in the center of Lisbon and stop in the monumental quarter to see the Belém Tower and Jeronimos Monastery (close on Mondays).
We will also drive along the coast and visit Sintra, there we can just walk around and shop or we can visit one of the several monuments (Pena Palace, Town Palace, Moorish Castle. . . ).

In just one day you will have a great idea of our culture and I'm sure you will wish to come back to see much more :)


Drive along the coast
Belém District

We will drive to Sintra and visit the monument that you have decide to visit, than we will go to Cascais and drive along the coast until we reach Belém area in Lisbon where we will see the Belém tower and the church at the Monastery of Saint Jerome.
(please notice that this church is always close on Mondays)

We will visit the palace/monument that you prefer according to our interests, but please notice that if you pretend to visit Pena Palace we should arrive earlier in the morning in other try to avoid queues, so I suggest to start at 8:30.

*I can customize this tour according to your interests*
