Explore Lisbon's surroundings by going to Sintra (Park and National Palace of Pena & Quinta da Regaleira). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Belém Tower, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosteiro dos Jeronimos, explore the historical opulence of Castelo de S. Jorge, and stop by Alfama.

For photos, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Lisbon trip itinerary planner.

Ottawa, Canada to Lisbon is an approximately 13-hour combination of train, bus, and flight. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from Ottawa to Lisbon due to the time zone difference. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from Ottawa in September; daily highs in Lisbon reach 32°C and lows reach 19°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Sun) early enough to travel to Rogil.
