Cascais has rocketed from being a sleepy fishing village to a much-loved summertime playground of wave-frolicking Lisbonites ever since King Luís I went for a dip there in 1870. Its trio of golden bays attracts holidaymakers who come to splash in the Atlantic or simply relax and explore the town, with its winding lanes, small museums, cool gardens, shiny marina and pedestrianised old town.

Included Excursions

Lisbon
Today, we enjoy a full day step-on guided excursion to Lisbon. Set on seven hills on the banks of the River Tagus, Lisbon has been the capital of Portugal since the 13th century. It is a city famous for its majestic architecture, old wooden trams, Moorish features and more than twenty centuries of history. Following disastrous earthquakes in the 18th century, Lisbon was rebuilt by the Marquês de Pombal who created an elegant city with wide boulevards and a great riverfront and square, Praça do Comércio. Today there are distinct modern and ancient sections, combining great shopping areas with culture and sightseeing in the Old Town, built on the city’s terraced hillsides.

Óbidos & Sintra
After breakfast our guide will meet us for a full day step-on guided tour, starting with a morning visit to Óbidos. As pristine as it is picturesque, Óbidos remains a perfectly photogenic jumble of cobblestone alleyways, whitewashed churches, colourful houses and dazzling tiles all embraced within the protective walls of a 12th century castle. In the afternoon we visit the charming town of Sintra. The whole town is a UNESCO World Heritage site on account of its 19th century romantic architecture. The town still retains much of its medieval layout, with labyrinthine streets, steps and arcades.

Queluz Palace & Gardens
This morning we visit Queluz Palace and Gardens, designated a National Monument in 1910. The National Palace of Queluz and its historical gardens are a remarkable example of the harmonious link between landscape and architecture. After our visit here we return to our hotel to enjoy the rest of the day at leisure.

Day 8: After breakfast we travel to our overnight hotel in Salamanca.

Days 9 – 10: This morning, we enjoy a guided walking tour of Salamanca before we travel to Santander in the afternoon to catch our evening ferry to Plymouth/Portsmouth. Upon arrival we head to our overnight hotel, the Moorland Garden Hotel in Yelverton.

Day 11: After breakfast we head back to Norfolk, where your taxi will be waiting to take you home.
