If the weather is nice, this is the perfect stroll for a half-day tour. Wear nice walking shoes, take your camera, a hat and sunglasses, and start exploring this nice and small, but cosy old town! Plenty of souvenir shops, nice restaurants and cafés to relax a bit!

Just back from a four night stay in Cascais. A beautiful resort very typically Portuguese and not spoilt by too many visitors. Highly recommend a visit to this picturesque and charming town. Never too busy and crowded and this was the height of the season.

I have lived here for 18 months on secondment. The town is great - I have run a constant 'hotel' with many friends wanting to visit. There are many good restaurants and there is a good variety of things to do - a car helps.

Just 40mns train ride from the Portuguese capital, Cascais is Lisbon's posh little sister. Too snob for some, too quiet for others, Cascais has a rather grown up feel. The charming harbor, small streets, old villas and expensive hotelsl all combine to create a romantic atmosphere. We went early may -it was warm, dry and sunny- so it was not... More

Cascais really is a beautiful town. Great beaches, good and plentiful restaurants, calm and relaxed. You can stroll around the market square, stop for drinks at any of a dozen places. Or just sit and watch the little fishing boats in the harbour. Cascais will not disappoint.

Really nice area to stroll around in. Some nice small local restaurants and cafés. Not so much shopping in this area - just a few but still nice places.
