Top 7 Things To Do in Estoril

This city is fit for royalty -- King Luís I chose Estoril bay for his summer residence in the late 19th Center. Thereafter, the rich and famous historically came to Estoril, and it's not lost any of its elegance and charm. It's a stylish beach resort located on the beautiful coastline west of vibrant Lisbon. There's more reasonably priced accommodation too, so no need to be afraid of any exclusivity!

Day Trip to Sintra

These bold, bright, lavish buildings built for Portuguese nobility set in the hills are a must-see. Why not combine the Pena Palace, the National Palace, and the Moors castle.

Museu Dos Exilios

More than just a museum, this place is a memorial for refugees and exiles who, particularly around WWII, sought shelter. Archives, photos, and film footage are worth delving into.

Planning Your Estoril Visit

Can I get here straight from Lisbon Airport?

Yes, Estoril is 18 miles west of Lisbon and you can get there by an inexpensive and quick train ride.

Do they speak English outside the major cities?

People who work in the tourist industry are constantly exposed to English speaking tourists, media, and culture. There will be no problems, though it's always appreciated if you try some basic Portuguese.

Sintra - Cascais Estoril - Full Day Tour Reviewed by Jennifer, 10/04/2016

The sights were beautiful and our guide, Nuno Alegria, was great!

It was a great tour. Our guide, Nuno Algeria was very friendly and knowledgeable.

That day trip was the highlight of our stay in Lisbon

This was just a perfect day. Our guide Juan was very passionate about passing on to us his knowledge and love for his country, adding plenty of anecdotes in his talks. Brilliant overview of that area but truly Sintra deserves a minimum of two days to be explored entirely.

great tour!one of the best highlights of our trip!!

Amazing tour guide. Very friendly and knowledge about the places we met. His name was Harold. We really enjoyed our day trip.

It was a great tour; I greatly recommend it!!

Our tour guide, Harald, was friendly, knowledgeable, and knew Portugal's history very well. I don't usually like to join scheduled tours but this one was worth every penny. Harald showed us great views, points of interest, and he even took us to a very authentic restaurant not frequented by tourists; he also recommended good restaurants and activities to do in Lisbon. Thank you so much for the experience.
