We will be staying at Sesimbra starting from Sunday, September 7th and can choose any weekday to drive to Sintra. Monday looks tempting because most other attractions/museums are closed but I'm afraid too many other people might find it tempting too ;) Is Monday really more busy day in Sintra than other weekdays?
I know that it's best to arrive as early as possible, so we will try to get there by 10:00 and find a parking spot somewhere at the top. Is there any nifty trick allowing to see everything and always walk down, not up? A whole day of sightseeing is fatiguing enough without having to climb hills all the time ;)
