Best time of the year virtually anywhere is spring time when the temperatures are moderate. And so it was for us in April. Sintra is a beautiful little town high above Lisbon but only a 30 minute ride by taxi. We hired two taxis for the 7 of us and it cost $150 for the day. They picked us up at our hotel, gave us a tour of Lisbon enroute and then took us to both of the big palaces of Sintra. Better yet, in the town square next to the palace with two fat smoke stakes we had the best pastries we've had anywhere.
