1. Sintra: Jeep Tour with Visit to Pena Palace
Explore the UNESCO World Heritage town of Sintra on a Jeep tour with a local guide. Admire the romantic architecture and landscape, and hear about real-life castles and mysterious legends. Visit Pena Palace, discover off-road lookouts, and sample Port wine. After meeting your guide, start the day with a visit to the magical Pena Palace (entry tickets not included). There, marvel at the red-and-yellow Disney-like castle that sits atop Sintra’s second-highest peak. Once you're finished at Pena Palace, stop for lunch (not included) at a traditional Portuguese restaurant in a small village. Think fresh fish or tasty meat on the wood-fired grill, accompanied by plenty of wine. After lunch, visit the 12th-century Peninha Sanctuary and enjoy the 360-degree views of the forest, the Atlantic Ocean, Lisbon, Sintra, and Cascais. Then, cruise around in the convertible jeep to epic lookouts and secret spots other visitors can’t reach. Snap Polaroid pictures at the coast, play your own music all day long, and enjoy a tasting of Sintra’s traditional sweet pastry and Port wine.
