Itinerary for your Post-Programme:
Day 1: After disembarkation, we will take the route to the cosmopolitan city of Cascais on the Portuguese Riviera. Its three golden bays shelter sandy beaches together with a yacht-filled harbour, while cobblestone streets are lined with bustling shops looked over by an imposing fort that may impress every visitor.
Afterwards, you'll visit Monserrate Palace, the traditional summer resort for Portuguese royalty. Stroll its sublime gardens full of romantic ruins and exotic flowers from foreign countries. A typical Portuguese lunch is then waiting for you in a local restaurant.
Before returning to Lisbon for the night, we head to the beautiful, fairy-tale resort town of Sintra which has inspired many poets. Nestled in a rolling mountain range overlooking the Atlantic, the UNESCO-listed town is renowned for its 19th-century Romanticist architecture, historic estates, pastel-coloured villas, luxuriant gardens, and royal palaces and castles. Spend the night at a hotel in Lisbon including breakfast the next day.
Please note that the order of visited sites may vary.
