Would like to visit Sintra before starting our Portugal tour. Best suggestions on
how many days best to stay and any hotel
your recommend.

Many cover this as a day trip by train from Lisbon.

The Tivoli Palacio de Seteais is a good hotel there.

Sintra is a lovely place. It is easy to get to on a commuter train from Lisbon. If you are staying in Lisbon, I would do it as a day trip from there. One day should be enough.

Hi all -- I've cleaned up a substantial number of comments here that were intended to be silly but instead came off as sarcastic and unwelcoming. We really do want this forum to be welcoming to ALL travelers, even those new to traveling and those who make simply spelling mistakes (we all do at some point!). When responding, please keep in mind our first two forum guidelines:

  1. Stay on topic. Make your contribution relevant to the original post.
  2. Be polite. Comments that contain inappropriate language, harshly criticize, or disrespect others' opinions are not allowed. New travelers should be shown extra patience. If you can't write politely, move on.

Also, please remember that what you intend as sarcasm or a bit of fun can easily be misinterpreted as personal attacks over the internet.
