Definitely take a bus or car up to the palace. To far to walk and the hills are vey steep. Try to buy your tickets ahead at the TI in town to save yourself from waiting in long lines or waiting for machines that don't...More

Nice Palace and worth having a look but 50€ for two adults and one teenager to see a lot of rooms under construction was too much. Maybe if you go for the full day and ready to walk through all the gardens.

If you are planning to do the "Sintra" trip with your own (rental) car, you have two options: either go really early to beat the crowds, or later in the afternoon. We decided on the latter option, spending the afternoon at a cool beach (Praia...More
