The Lisbon and Sintra Private Day Trip is highly requested by those who are on a short stay.
We will start the day in the charming village of Sintra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site elected as a summer retreat by the Portuguese royal family.
We will start with a guided visit through Sintra’s must-see landmark, the Pena Palace. A palace that is known to be the most eclectic 19th-century palace in Portugal. After your visit, we will make a quick stop at the center of the village to taste the famous local pastries: “Queijadas” and “Travesseiros.”
Spend your afternoon in the most emblematic district in Lisbon, Belém, where we will visit the church of the Jerónimos Monastery and admire the iconic Belém Tower. One cannot miss a visit to the Pastéis de Belém. A pastry shop where you will taste the best custard tart in Lisbon!

A charming village located in a Natural Park with castles and grand mansions used as summer houses for the Portuguese royalty. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage site, and due to its natural beauty and unique atmosphere, Sintra is the most visited village in Portugal.
An astonishing fairytale palace located on one of the highest peaks of the Sintra Mountains. Pena Palace was built in the 19th Century by King consort Ferdinand II of Portugal. He turned a 16th Century monastery ruins into one of the most eclectic palaces in Europe by blending different types of Gothic, Egyptian, Moorish and Renaissance elements to it. Around the palace he created a park where he planted different exotic species of trees from all over the world.
While walking through the historical center, you’ll find yourself surrounded by old houses that have been converted into small shops and bakeries, selling local products, regional pastries, and handicrafts.
The launching point for the Portuguese discoveries, with significant historical monuments in a beautiful open riverside setting. In Belém, you can visit the iconic Belém Tower, the Discoveries Monument, visit the church of the Jerónimos Monastery and taste the original, world-famous Portuguese custard tart.
Avenida da Liberdade is one of the main avenues of the city of Lisbon, and it connects Restauradores Square with the Marquês de Pombal roundabout. It has wide sidewalks covered in Portuguese pavement and is lined with stores of luxurious brands.
In the middle of the roundabout, you’ll see a bronze statue of the Marquis of Pombal in the top, with a lion, a symbol of power, by his side. The Marquis is looking towards the city center, the area of Lisbon that was rebuilt under his direction after the 1755 Lisbon earthquake.
One of the most surprising and mysterious of all Sintra’s monuments. A magical place located on the outskirts of the village. It was built in the first years of the 20th century by Carvalho Monteiro, a man with a vast culture and a great philanthropist.
The Moors Castle is a fortification built with granite blocks in the 10th century after the Muslim conquest of the Iberian Peninsula. The outer wall has a pathway from which you can admire a beautiful view of the village, the National Palace of Sintra, the Pena Palace, the natural park, and the Atlantic Ocean.
Considered the most western point of mainland Europe, it’s located on a cliff with more than 140 meters of height, offering you breathtaking views.
The main area of interest is Praça do Comércio, one of the largest squares in Europe and, for many centuries, the main entrance of the city of Lisbon. This square is full of terraces and restaurants where you can enjoy the landscape and Lisbon’s pace. To get to the city center, you must go through the Arc de Triomphe and walk along Augusta street.
The most traditional and oldest neighborhood of Lisbon composed of a maze of narrow streets, tortuous alleys, and steep flights of stairs. It’s the birthplace of ‘Fado,’ a traditional song of Lisbon classified as World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. Alfama is known internationally for its Fado Houses, and the Popular Saints’ Festival held in Lisbon throughout June.
