      Lisbon Coast: Cascais and Sintra with Lunch

      Lisbon, Portugal
      From (USD) $
      • Cascais: A quiet fishing port through the Middle Ages, this chilled-out city became a popular oceanside resort in the 19th century thanks to Portugal's royal family; visitors today enjoy its relaxing beaches and picturesque cliffs.
      • Sintra: Lavish royal palaces, stunning views, a 9th-century castle and sprawling mountains make it easy to see why King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella loved vacationing in this beautiful city that's now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
      • Lisbon: Settled by humans for over 2,000 years, Portugal's vibrant coastal capital now features a stunning Royal Palace and the ornate Jeronimos Monastery, a late-Gothic marvel with dozens of elegant towers, sculptures and arched windows.
      • Curral dos Caprinos: A culinary staple of Sintra since 1974, here you'll enjoy a lunch of bread, smoked ham, potato and cabbage soup, caprine-style beef or pork kebab with fried potatoes and salad, and a special fruit or pastry dessert.
      About This Lisbon Tour

      One of Lisbon's most famous fans, the English Romantic poet Lord Byron, wasn't even supposed to have made his first trip there.

      He and his friend were trying to sail to Malta, but they missed their transport and instead ended up visiting the Portuguese capital. But Byron didn't mind the mix-up too much - When he got there, he wrote of the city: "Oh Christ! It is a goodly sight to see. What heaven hath done for this delicious land!"

      Old George wasn't the only one to hold that opinion of the southern coast of Portugal. In 1481, King John II was crowned in the mountainside town of Sintra. He and his wife would return to the charming city years later in 1493; throughout the centuries, a host of kings, queens and princes including Isabella, Amelia and Ferdinand would follow their example, making the city a popular vacation spot for the upper crust.

      Walking around Sintra's tranquil city center, with its massive arch and elegant fountain, it's easy to see what has attracted royals, artists and travelers here for so long. Lush green mountains roll towards the horizon, topped by a massive sky. The unending views of the Atlantic are some of the best in all of Europe.

      The palaces and monuments that the aristocracy erected here are equally gorgeous. The most notable is the technicolor Pena Palace, of which composer Richard Strauss once said "[it] seems to come straight out of a fairy-tale…it is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen."

      After strolling around town, we think you'll agree with the legendary creatives who so admired Sintra – but unlike Byron, you may find yourself coming back to Lisbon on purpose.

      Romantic landscapes

      The gorgeous scenery in Sintra helped inspire Lord Byron to write Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, the poem that propelled him to fame. "I awoke one morning and found myself famous," he said after it was published. Byron is known as much for his writing as for his womanizing: He had several scandalous affairs, including one with the Lady Caroline Lamb. Caroline took the end of their fling poorly, burning the lecherous poet in effigy and later slashing her wrists in front of him at a party.
