Description

Two towns so suggestive but different, each with its own particular atmosphere: the almost fairytale enchantment of Sintra and the delightful Queluz, with its palace in rococò style.



What we will see
  • Sintra
  • Queluz:  National Palace


What we will do
  • From Lisbon we will head towards Queluz, famous for its lovely National Palace Rococò, today visited by tourists considered a valuable museum and still used for important receptions. We will visit the Queluz National Palace, the royal residence known as the "Portuguese Versailles", a magnificent construction with elegant lounges and manicured gardens.
  •  We proceed straight to Sintra, a town where Lord Byron used to stay in the early nineteenth century: the great poet named it "magnificent Eden", both for the undisputed charm of the place and for its mild climate. Enjoy a guided walk and some free time for shopping before the drive back to Lisbon.
