The Coastal Drive in Portugal is one of Europe’s must-do road journeys and we wanted to do this trip in a different way with some experiences which we have always dreamt of.
Travel is about the journey, not the destination – especially when you’re cruising along Europe’s most picturesque roads and that too in a convertible car. It is like a dream to have your personal guide/driver and you just get to enjoy the drive, drop the top and hit the road!
The private Lisbon tour begins with a pickup from your hotel at 9 AM. Then you meet your guide, pop into your retro VW Beetle convertible and begin with a drive to the top landmarks in Lisbon. The journey is built in such a way that you get to wind through the streets of Alfama and see Castelo de São Jorge that commands its hillside, along with discovering the famous historic square Praça do Comércio in Baixa. The journey continues to amble through the neighborhoods of Graça, Belém, Bairro Alto and Chiado and learn about the areas that were rebuilt after the devastating Lisbon earthquake of 1755.
As you select the full-day option and enjoy an 8-hour adventure that not only adds more places to visit in Lisbon, but includes a trip to the fairytale-like town of Sintra. Gazing the stunning views until you arrive at the cape which forms the westernmost extent of continental Europe, Cabo da Roca. This place is perfect spot to click some amazing pictures and take away as a souvenir.
Cabo da Roca, about 150 metres above the sea, offers you a panoramic view over the Serra de Sintra and the coast. It lies within the Parque Natural de Sintra-Cascais and is one of the points of interest on the walking trails along the coast.
Further travelling on to the region of Sintra and observing the beautiful combination of nature and architectural expression, you get to see how the Arabesque Monserrate Estate and the well-maintained Sintra National Palace elegantly coexist within the lush hillsides. The guide with you, thoroughly provides insight of the castles and marvelous buildings which makeup the UNESCO-listed town of Sintra. To get a well rounded experience of Portugal, feel free to indulge in wine and spirit tastings and don’t forget to try Lisbon’s famous cakes.
