Description – Day 1
Visit Cascais, Lisbon & Sintra
In this 2 day- tour we will visit Cascais, Lisbon & Sintra.
The tour usually is made on foot during the whole morning. However, those with conditioned locomotion can choose to make it by car.
We will start by one of the hills of Lisbon, the one where São Jorge Castle is located. Then we visit the best Belvederes in Lisbon, whilst telling you the history and the legends of the neighbourhoods we encounter, tasting the best that traditional gastronomy has to offer and visiting the most emblematic taverns and traditional trade stores.
Once in Downtown, in Square of Comércio, we will analyse some of the discrete symbols of the influence of the Freemasons and we will relive the history of the Earthquake of 1755.
After this, it’s time to explore the other hill of the City, where the cosmopolitan centre of Chiado is located, as well as the oldest patisseries in Lisboa, coffee stores and the Museum of the Filigree.
Lunch in the historical and typical quarter of Lisbon.
In the afternoon we will lose ourselves in the history of Portuguese discoveries in Belém, where the main Monuments and Museums are waiting for us.
And after we feel the strength of the warriors and of the Knight Templar, it’s time to eat a Pastel de Belém with a Port glass.
At the end of the day 1 of our 2-day tour where you visit Cascais, Lisbon & Sintra, it´s time for the deserved rest with a drop off at the hotel.
