Itinerary for your Pre-Programme:

Day 1: Lisbon 

Spend the night at a hotel in Lisbon, including breakfast the next morning. 

Day 2: Sintra, Monserrate Palace and Cascais 

Today, you'll enjoy seeing and doing some of the best things in and around Lisbon. First, we'll visit the UNESCO-listed town of Sintra, with its fairy-tale 19th century architecture, pastel-coloured villas and castles. In a typical Portuguese restaurant, a nice lunch will be served to you.  

A highlight is the parks and palace of Monserrate – a masterpiece of Romanticism with gardens full of ruins and exotic flowers. 

Then we'll visit the golden beaches of Cascais on the Portuguese Riviera, before returning to the history-steeped streets and architecture of Lisbon. 

Your expedition ship will be waiting for you in the port.  

Please note we may visit these sights in a different order.
