What to Expect
Skip the big group shore excursions when your ship docks in Lisbon and enjoy a private tour of the city, along with the artistic town of Sintra, the Estoril coast, and the traditional fishing village of Cascais.
Start with the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sintra, a fairytale town of fantastic architecture. Wander the narrow streets to discover the summer retreats of the kings of Portugal and Moorish lords. Marvel at the romantic Moors Castle, and the Royal Palace built on the site of a Moorish Alcazar.
Head to the top of the hill to the extravagant 19th-century palace of King Ferdinand. Known for its rare Romanticist architectural styles and colors, the Pena Palace commands stunning views of the “Sacred Mountains” of the Serra. Next, take a relaxing drive along the Estoril Coast, and visit the historical center of Cascais, where fishing traditions are still maintained. Continue to the beautiful beaches of Estoril, gazing at the Atlantic Ocean en route to Lisbon.
Spend the afternoon exploring the main squares of Lisbon, such as the ornate Praça do Rossio and Praça do Comércio. Go to the Castle of Saint George for astonishing views of the city and old Moorish quarter of Alfama. End your adventure where many explorers started, in the historic district of Belém, and marvel at the 16th-century Tower of Belém and Jerónimos Monastery.
See the Monument to the Discoveries, erected in 1960 to honor the 500th anniversary of the death of the great Portuguese explorer, Henry the Navigator.
