We let our hotel make a reservation to rent a scooter for the next day. We made an appointment for 09:30 the next day, and we were met by the friendly local owner.
The registration etc was done very quickly and he showed us the Vespa, which was in good condition. We planned a trip to Sintra (without tourguide), via de highway. But the owner advised us that taking the local roads was much nicer, i'm very glad we did!
We drove by the Torré Belem, Estoril, Cascais(we had some lunch), Cabo da Rocha and Sintra. We basically just followed the river as we were advised, and it worked out perfectly. We had an amazing day, such a nice experience and so much freedom on the Vespa!!
We took some nice photo's near the bridge and around cabo do rocha and sintra!
Lisbon traffic is pretty light and safe. When you're outside the city, it's just a joy to drive on the little country roads.
Take some warm clothes, as Cabo Do Rocha can be very windy!
I would recommend this experience to everyone! We even feel bad we did't hire the scooter for 2 days, as it would also be nice to discover the various tourist highlights in the city centre itself. Unfortunately we were short on time and had to leave Lisbon for the Algarve.
