"This isn't entirely off the..." Day trips: Sintra, Cascais, Alcochete... Tip by gnowk


This isn't entirely off the beaten path, but I would strongly suggest visiting Sintra, an hour's train ride outside of Lisbon.

It is tiny and far more charming, IMHO.

Tourists know about it, but not that many and it's definately kept its charm.

Very romantic spot too.
