Coming to Lisbon AND not visiting Cascais for at least a few hours it is like going to Rome and not visiting vaticano... At least try to pass a full day around Cascais. Have lunch enjoying the sun and feel the air.

I came on a visit with my sisters. I was so taken with it's charm. It is a beautiful well maintained town with an amazing and accessible coastline. I miss it already. Every place we dined was wonderful. The people were great. It was safe and walkable. I wished we could have stayed longer.

I live here and it is the best tplace to live in the Lisbon área. If you go a bit further in, away from the town hall, you'll find a place with a life of its own and better and less expensive restaurants

This is a lovely area to spend a few hours relaxing by the sea, visiting some nice little shops & there are plenty of nice restaurants scattered through the cobbled streets. It's a lovely place to spend a holiday, as there's great access all along the coast & of course, Lisbon.

when we went to see Cascais we saw this small little museum when we went inside it was really interesting cause you learned all of the different thing plus at the top of the building there is a view on the see which is really good so i would advise you to go there but it is vey touristy.

Walking in the central historic district is fun and the scenery is quaint. There are lots of good restaurant's but you have to be selective. Shopping is OK but very touristy.

We were blessed with 25 degrees on Easter Monday so we opted to take the train (every 20 mins from Cais do Sodre') and explore Cascais. It is a lovely seaside resort and if it was so busy in April I cannot think how busy this place will get in the summer. Stroll on the promenade, drink or snack at... More

This charming village has it all. A beautiful historic centre, great hotels and restaurants and only 30 minutes from Lisbon. Great place to stay if you want to balance beach and city.

Short walk to Cascasis town. which was a lovely little town . Lisbon was a 40 minutes train ride away. The best bit was a visit to Sintra castles, palaces etc.

Cascais is a very beautiful village with a breathtaking seafront. Walking around you will find lots of small little streets with a lot to see and all kind of shops, restaurants and coffee shops. If visiting Lisbon it is easy to take a train in Cais do Sodre Station that will travel to Cascais in 30 minutes by the coast.
