EXPLORING THE BEACHES AND THE MOUNTAINS
Just 30km away from Lisbon, you are able to experience two completely different aspects of Portugal.
We will start our day by visit Cascais, renowned for its white sandy beaches; its small shops and charming streets. In the past Cascais was a fishing village. The city has reinvented itself and became a seaside resort and one of the most beautiful destinations in the region of Lisbon.
After a walking tour in Cascais we will follow to Sintra, classified as World Heritage by UNESCO, is considered to have the perfect symbiosis between nature and its built heritage.
Before visiting the National Palace of Sintra: The gigantic, whitewashed building and its two conical chimneys that dominates Sintra’s main square as well as the flat plains for miles around, we will have lunch in a very cozy restaurant with a lovely view over part of Sintra Mountain.
After visiting this romantic village, one motorcoach will return to Lisbon. For those registering for the Porto Post-Conference Tour, a separate coach we will start your journey toward Porto.
