Cascais on Your Own

Cascais is a coastal resort town in Portugal, just west of Lisbon. It's known for its sandy beaches and busy marina where the old town is home to the medieval Nossa Senhora da Luz Fort and the Citadel Palace, a former royal retreat. Nearby is the whitewashed Nossa Senhora da Assunao church, with glazed azulejo tiles.

Cascais is the premier holiday destination of the Lisbon coastline. This is a traditional and charming Portuguese fishing town, which has responsibly developed into a popular resort town. Historically, Cascais was the summer retreat of the Portuguese nobility, and today the town is an elegant fusion of its illustrious heritage, with the expectations of the modern tourist. Found within the cobbled streets of the historic centre are lavish villas, an imposing fort, fascinating museums, along with a buzzing holiday atmosphere. Cascais boasts so many historic sights and attractions, that it is regarded as one of the best day trips from Lisbon.

After approximately 50-minutes from leaving bustling Lisbon, you will arrive to Cascais. You will be dropped off by your local representative, feel free to wander as you wish and completely at your leisure. Learn the long legacy of Cascais, once a sleepy fishing village and popular resort town where nobles and kings once summered, while browsing local museum exhibits. Soak up the sun and sand along the dazzling Atlantic or stroll along the harbor for a spectacular view of passing yachts.

You might shop designer boutiques in old town, admire the verdant gardens of Marechal Carmona Park, or savor fresh seafood while dining alfresco in an oceanfront cafe to savor traditional Portuguese cuisine.

At the appointed time and location, return to find your transportation waiting to drive you back to the pier area and your ship after a fun, few hours spent on your own in Cascais. Book this on-your-own tour today and get up-close and personal with an intimate encounter in Cascais.
