Out and About Locally
Cascais & Costa da Guia
Only a couple minutes walking distance from Casa da Guia (a luxury cliff side complex of restaurants & shops), this holiday apartment is perfectly located. Within walking distance (15 to 20 minutes) along the Ocean front to the Centre of Cascais and a 2 minute drive from one of the most fabulous beaches on the Lisbon Coast, Guincho, there is plenty to do and see.
Out & About in Lisbon
Lisbon itself has lots to delight; from taking an old electric tram up the steep hills of Lisbon to whizzing up to the top of the Santa Justa Elevator to get a panoramic view of the city of Lisbon. Do visit Alfama (the old quarter) and be sure to wear comfortable rubber soled shoes to avoid slipping on the cobbles. In the evenings, take in a Fado evening over dinner in one of the many restaurants in this area. Bairro Alto is also wonderfully lively at night – lots of restaurants, Fado houses and late night bars/clubs.
June 12th is the night of the Festival of St Anthony; the best night for trying traditional sardines in Lisbon.
Go by tram - #15 is the best - to Belem. It leaves from Praça Figueira and stops at Praça do Comerçio and Cais do Sodré before going on to Belem - a wonderful place of fountains, parks, monuments and monasteries.
To get to Lisbon walk into Cascais and get the train (30-40 minutes) to Cais do Sodre.
