This one of a kind private tour focuses solely on three beautiful royal Lisbon palaces and their breathtaking, landscaped gardens. Over the centuries many royal palaces and noble mansions were built in Lisbon. For nearly 800 years Portugal´s monarchy made Lisbon its main home. In these opulent and extravagant times an average palace wasn’t enough of a display of wealth and importance so the noble families built magnificent and sometimes huge residences that pushed the boundaries of Portuguese architecture. Walk in the footsteps of royalty by taking a tour of the most beautiful palaces in Lisbon. Discover Palácio dos Marqueses de Fronteira, Palácio Nacional e Jardins de Queluz and National Palace of Pena & Park. Explore their history, art and the rare flowers and plants in the manicured gardens. The beautiful Palacio Marqueses de Fronteira is a little off the tourist track and renowned for its collection of Portuguese and Dutch tiles. Here you will start your day with a guided tour with the palace´s guides. The next palace is quite different: the impressive Palácio Nacional e Jardins de Queluz. A fascinating palace and the official royal residence during the 18th century, with architectural influences ranging from baroque to rococo to neoclassicism. Finally Pena Palace in Sintra: this fairytale palace sits on top of the highest mountain in Sintra and boasts unique architecture with gothic, Egyptian and Moorish influences. Wander through the unique grounds and admire the exotic plants and trees, plus spooky, forested walkways. Perfect for those who love slow-paced tours, with lots of noble Portuguese history.
