What You'll Do

Escape Lisbon for the day with a Local Host, taking the train to the enchanting town of Sintra like Lisbon's royalty once did! The town and its beautiful surrounds are more than deserving of its UNESCO World Heritage status, and with a Local Host by your side you'll discover why.

Be enchanted by the town’s palaces; the fairytale Palacio Nacional de Sintra, the extravagant Pena Palace and the imposing Castelo dos Mouros - which was built in the 9th century! As well as these historic landmarks, stroll through beautiful gardens and take in incredible views over the town and surrounding forests from the battlements of the castle. 

Enjoy an authentic local meal at one of the tascas, outdoor cafes or traditional restaurants which are dotted all over the town, tasting the delicious dishes that the region is famous for.

While you're in Sintra, you may also want to visit the rugged shores of the Atlantic and the most westerly point in Europe! Here, you can relax on a secluded beach that only the locals know about and explore an abandoned convent which was carved into the cliffs, soaking up its incredible history.

On this experience you’ll spend time getting to know your Local Host, who will be able to offer insights and knowledge not only about Sintra, but also about what to do and see in Lisbon, so you can make the most of your trip!
