After a stroll in the old city, you’ll make your way to Pena Palace, which stands tall at the top of a hill overlooking Sintra. Its whimsical exterior boasts a profusion of styles from the 19th-century Romanticism era.Leaving Pena Palace behind, you’ll drive to the charming town of Cascais. Go for a walk or have a cup of coffee in one of the small cafés before enjoying a beautiful drive along the Estoril Coast. As you make your way back to Lisbon along the Atlantic, you’ll pass pretty beaches and the Casino Estoril with its beautiful gardens.
