Fall and winter may be the very best time to visit Sintra, as this is one of the few travel locations which actually can actually be even more enjoyable in the winter, regardless of the weather. Sounds far fetched? Not really - here are 4 reasons why you should visit Sintra this fall:
These days it's hard to find a beautiful destination that no else has found yet and when the sun is out, so is everybody else. The cooler temperatures of autumn and winter mean that sun chasers simply head to the tropics, leaving wonderful locations that have a lot more to offer than just the summer heat free for you to explore at your leisure.
Whether you like to walk, run or cycle on your travels, less people also means less traffic; less tour buses and fewer clusters of packaged tourists flocking about and that means more space and freedom for you. If you're a cyclist, low season means "low traffic" becomes "no traffic" and you can have the roads and lanes of Sintra to yourself.
From flights and hotels to tour operators and outfitters, you can get great deals by picking low season travel dates to Sintra. Almost all hotels and airlines offer substantial discounts on their standard rates. Once you factor in lower prices and less crowds and hassle, you can be onto a great deal just for choosing to enjoy your vacation when everyone else is not.
Naturally not all destinations are ideal for visiting during the fall, but Sintra is certainly one of them - ancient moss covered walls, mist shrouded palaces and cascading waterfalls are all part of the low season scenery. If you want to go beyond the ordinary holiday snaps, some of the most exquisite sights can really only be seen during autumn and winter.
