“Going to Lisbon on Holiday - Stay Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

This town is about 30 mins by train from Lisbon. It runs every fifteen minutes and costs around four pounds return. Couple this with a six euro day pass for the metro, trams and buses and you have the bones of a day trip to Lisbon. The town has a huge wealth of affordable restaurants serving fish caught nearby and sold at the town's own fish market. Can't get any fresher. If you want to pay more then there are top class restaurants also. Choose from the list elsewhere on this site. Hotels are available from a three star on the front to a five star in a castle. Want a beach? Then you have a whole string of them stretching along the front, all cleaned daily and most backed by bars and cafes. From here also runs the promenade which stretches to Estril at least. Or just rty stroling the quaint streets. Great place to be.

“Great city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Great place to visit. You can go by train from Lisbon. Some of the historic beaches, worldwide competitions from surf, tennis, boats. Some restaurants will present you amazing sea food dishes and during summer several music events. Hot in Summer, a lovely place to be a night with families, friends.

“Beautiful Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

I took a Greyline tour to Cascais. It is about 2 hours from Lisbon, but worth the trip. There are beaches, sand dunes, surfing, shops, restaurants, condos, and hotels. The next time I visit Portugal I plan to stay in the Cascais area.

“Beach time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We took a day trip out to Cascais during our recent trip to Lisboa. We had a great time strolling along the water and through the shops. The train runs from Lisbon every 20 minutes. Round trip was €4.60.

“Beautiful town and harbour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Cascais is easy to travel to by train from Lisbon and well worth a visit. The fort overlooking the harbour and now converted into an hotel is an amazing piece of architecture.
