Lisbon - Sintra on our own day trip

Hello everyone

We are a 35 year old couple and we want to go from lisbon to sintra on our own. I suppose getting there by train would be an easy thing to do. My main question is what to do there. What are the main attractions i should see and which is the cheapest way to see as many as possible?Although we dont mind walking a bit, we dont want to miss time if there s a bus .

Thank you.

You will need the bus as several of the attractions are out of town on the top of very big hills.

Bus 434 links the main sights. Buy a day ticket.

There are more buses in summer.

The bus stop is right outside the Sintra railway station which is by far the best way to get there from Lisbon. Trains leave from Lisbon Rossio station but you can get there from other parts of the city by changing trains en route
