After being picked up from your hotel in Lisbon, head to the fascinating Palace of Queluz. Inside, discover a combination of Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassical architectural designs, whilst in the gardens a French architectural style awaits you. In the elegant Throne Room, admire gold carvings and mirrors and see where royals used to host their guests.

In the garden, wander among lakes, fountains and lead statues depicting mythological scenes. Finish your tour of this palace at the amazing Canal dos Azulejos. Here you can admire 18th-century tile designs and see where the royal family used to ride a small boat on sunny afternoons.

Next, head back to Lisbon, to visit the Ajuda Palace, located in the Belem neighbourhood. Inside, admire extravagant furniture, tapestries, sculptures, and decorative arts. Make your way through the impressive Dining Room, admiring crystal chandeliers, silk-covered chairs, and an allegory of the birth of King João VI on the ceiling.
