If you're in the vicinity, you might want to make a brief stop in Cascais and look around. Personally, I didn't find it especially charming or interesting, but it is worth a short visit.

It's always delicious to have a walk through Cascais Historical Center. You can also do that by scooter rental or by those free public bikes you can rent per hour or by paid rental bikes.

Loved the place. It had real charm and character. Close attractions like Sintra and Boca. Great cycling. Good food and cute beaches. Easy to get to from Lisbon and the train runs regularly and is in good condition.

It is lovely and picturesque, with small winding lanes lined with shops and cafes. Unfortunately it was raining when we were there so we weren't able to enjoy it fully

It is not a place for history but it is a very nice city and fisherman port. They have small beaches, nice little streets, nice restaurants and a meditarranean atmosphere. It is a very nice place to stay.

The Arsenal is a hotel and art space and there are churches and a lovely park including a museum of ancient Portuguese civilization. There is a modern art museum and when I was there a flea market. Lots of good views.

I stayed in Bairro Alto in Lisbon. It's cheap to travel by train and it takes some 40 minutes from Cascais to Cais do Sodré
