Today, you'll enjoy seeing and doing some of the best things in and around Lisbon. First, we'll visit the UNESCO-listed town of Sintra, with its fairy-tale 19th century architecture, pastel-coloured villas and castles. In a typical Portuguese restaurant, a nice lunch will be served to you.  

A highlight is the parks and palace of Monserrate – a masterpiece of Romanticism with gardens full of ruins and exotic flowers. 

After the visit you´ll return to the history-steeped streets and architecture of Lisbon.

Your expedition ship will be waiting for you in the port.
