Lisbon hotel pick up

Depart from your hotel in Lisbon and travel out to Queluz in your air-conditioned vehicle with free wi-fi for a full-day trip from the countryside to the coast, led by an expert guide.

Queluz Palace, a summer royal residence

One of the most harmonious examples of the link between landscape and palatial architecture in Portugal.
Initially designed as a summer residence, became the royal family’s preferred place for leisure and their permanent residence from 1794 until their departure to Brazil in 1807, as a result of the French invasions. Enjoy a stroll through its beautifully landscaped formal gardens.

Mafra Palace: Visit with guide and ticket

Next, hop back in your vehicle and continue onward to the Palace of Mafra. Taste a "fradinho", a typical pastry from the region, before immersing yourself in the 18th-century Portugal.
This Baroque architectural complex, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site, encompasses a Royal Palace, a Basilica and a Convent. The Palace of Mafra boasts important collections of sculptures, paintings, two carillons, historic organs, an 18th-century hospital and an important 18th-century library with around 38.000 volumes.

Regularly visited by kings, who came to hunt in the game reserve, it was here that the last king of Portugal - Manuel II - spent the last night in the kingdom (1910), before his departure for exile.

Ericeira fishing town

Enjoy a fresh seafood lunch in a local restaurant (own expense) and then stroll around the town.
Set your feet on the same beach from which the last king of Portugal, Manuel II, sailed into exile in England.

Lisbon hotel drop off

Now it’s time to board the van back to your hotel in Lisbon.
