Daytrips from Lisbon

Lisbon, Portugal

Daily

Thanks to Portugal’s relatively small size, flying into Lisbon and then taking daytrips out of the city and into the Portuguese countryside is relatively easy. Wondering where to take your Portuguese daytrip?

Évora is a good pick. This ancient Roman city is filled with history, including a first-century Roman temple, city cathedral and 16th-century chapel that borrowed a bit of its architecture from the Parisian catacombs — the walls are lined with skulls. For those who prefer cuisine to history, there are plenty of places to eat. Don’t miss the famed local olive oil.

Cabo da Roca is a unique beach in that it’s the most westerly spot in the European continent. Walk along the rugged cliffs to the lighthouse and marvel at what was once thought of as the edge of the world. After snapping a few photos, walk into Sintra for amazing historical structures, including multiple palaces.

Nazare is a great seaside destination with all the seafood you can eat and a fun, local vibe. Many Portuguese families vacation here during the summer and it’s one of the most popular resort towns on Portugal’s Silver Coast. Surfing is a favorite water sport, but if you’d like to stick to dry land, hike to Miradouro do Suberco for panoramic views.

Blissfully Adrift

FOR THOSE OF US PASSIONATE about wellness pursuits and who feel most at peace close to the sea, there’s nothing quite like the synergy offered by a floating spa integrated into the setting of a luxurious cruise ship. I’m sailing through the Mediterranean from Rome to Barcelona, discovering along the way that the Crystal Life Spa & Beauty Salon on board the Crystal Serenity provides not only the element of high-end indulgence but also the cruise line’s signature commitment to attention and service.
