The capital of Portugal is definitely not short on events to offer you during the New Year period. This deal gives you the opportunity go and explore the city of Lisbon for a few days, whilst being able to celebrate the arrival of 2015 somewhere away from the UK.
You will be staying in the 4* Leziria Parque Hotel, which has received a TripAdvisor rating of 4/5. You will be staying here on a room only basis, so you’ll have an excellent excuse to go and explore, looking for a really good breakfast.
Your hotel is close to a few museums and really beautiful gardens. However, you will need to use the public transport to get in and out of the centre of Lisbon. The centre is a maximum train ride of 20 minutes away, and is really cheap.
Whilst in Lisbon there is an endless list of things that you could do. One of the things I enjoyed the most was the most expensive chapel in the world, or São Roque Church. When you go in, you are immediately aware of why it has that title; everything is made from gold. The intricate details on the walls, the figurines, absolutely everything has gold either embedded into it or around it. It is one of the most beautiful churches you will ever set foot in and is definitely worth a visit.
For New Year’s Eve I would recommend you head to Comercio Square; the biggest square in Portugal, to take part in the celebrations. It boats stunning views of the river, which reflects all of the fireworks when they go off. It’s a really lively, vibrant place to be.
The one I really like, however, is the celebrations at the Torre de Belem, which is one of the most famous monuments in Lisbon. The Torre looks out to the Atlantic Ocean and provides the party goers with some absolutely stunning views; it’s also the best place to enjoy the music and dance parties from!
