Are you asking how to go from Lisboa to Queluz, then to Sintra, then to Cascais and back to Lisboa?

If so it's easy, take the train to Sintra at Rossio train station, exit at Queluz, walk to the palace. Return to Queluz train station take the train to Sintra, take the bus to Pena Palace. Return to Sintra train station take the bus to Cascais, then take the train at Cascais train station back to Lisboa. You just have to start early and take in consideration the schedule for the last bus from Sintra to Cascais.

"the schedule for the last bus from Sintra to Cascais."

which is at 8.35pm (route 417).

If you have a bit of time to spare, route 403 from Sintra station to Cascais takes a longer but very scenic route.

Last buses on that run are at 6.10pm and 7.10pm

Detailed bus schedules at www.scotturb.com

Trains back from Cascais to Lisbon run every 30 minutes until 1.30am every night.

Have a good trip.

thank you, I copied your advice and that of another entry.How much time should we allow for sintra with lunch at the palace hotel as well as time in que de luz palace? Should we try to go to que de luz palace on the day we allot to Obidos. I would assume we can get to Obidos by train.

If you allow me, please not that the name is "Queluz" or you'll be looking for something that does not exist.

To go to Óbidos use the bus not the train, so no it's not possible to do Queluz and Óbidos on the same day.

The day with Queluz, Sintra and Cascais will be very busy, start early.

Paultugal - any fool that really knows where to eat in Cascais... That's why so many portuguese that live around Cascais go there to have lunch or dinner.

thank you for the correction. I guess I may have been thinking in French as we are sending one daughter there soon. Do we need reservations on the train to Sintra or the bus to Obidos? Do you know if the Lisboa card cover these?

Please note that not really possible to do a decent walk along the beaches in Cascais as they are small bays apart from the main town beach beneath the railway station. I would recommend the Largo de Camoes square where I worked for 3 years which is a great spot for people watching. For coffee and cake try Bijou or Chequers for a beer or wine. There is a great little restaurant in a cobbled street head for Camara (town hall) and Irish bar which is opposite the Pescadores beach - go round the back of the town hall and turn right (not up the hill) and you will find it there are only 3 tables outside. Beyond this up the hill (with the beach to the left) and you can access the attractive marina (drop down with the castle on your right) which has a number of good restaurants. I would also strongly recommend taking the train ride from Cascais back to Lisbon which offers varied scenery and typical Portuguese life. Stop at Estoril and have a night in the casino and there is a good restaurant baccarat serving simple food such as pasta etc. the host Javad is very welcoming. Well worth spending 4-5 days in Estoril/Cascais if you have the time. Good luck and enjoy!
