Lisbon day trips

Portugal’s capital city is surronded by several amazing places to explore. Lisbon day trips allow you to discover the coastline, a bit of History, places of faith, places of fun and great food and wine.

Sintra

Half an hour from the city center, this village is a gem and definitely worth of exploring. Besides the well-known Pena Palace, Village Palace, the Moorish Castle and Regaleira, there are many other places to see in this UNESCO World Heritage. And don’t miss the westernmost point of Continental Europe!

Fátima

Fátima is one of the most important shrines in the World. An absolutely place of devotion, it attracts not only roman catholics but also people from other faiths. Besides Fátima, during a day trip from Lisbon, you can also visit other places where History, Faith and Heritage are combined. Óbidos and Alcobaça are the best options.

Setúbal

Want to spend the day between the beach, a National Park, great food and wine, roman ruins and dolphin watching? If so, Setúbal is the day trip for you. Leave Lisbon and in one hour you can be trekking at the Arrábida mountains. Tasting fresh fish and crisp white wine. Discovering ancient remains in Tróia. Or having a swim in a beach just for you.

Évora

Évora is a bestseller in Lisbon day trips. And it’s easy to see why. The city has everything: prehistoric sites, a roman temple and spa, medieval and renaissance churches and monuments. And even a spooky Bone Chapel!
