New Year’s Eve is fast approaching and Portugal expect thousands of foreign tourists. And there are so many fantastic sites in this country to visit for this celebration. Now we show you the best places for spending this incredible evening.
And so, It’s time to kiss goodbye to 2015 and get ready to celebrate!
If there is a place to be on New Year’s Eve in Portugal, that place is the Island of Madeira – the chosen destination by thousands of national and foreign tourists every year. And here you can witness the “Biggest Fireworks Show in the World”, which lasts for more than 10 minutes throughout the city, a show that is even in the Guinness Book of World Records.
A fireworks performance is also the biggest attraction in Lisbon. Located by Tagus River, you can witness this show at Praça do Comércio. Parque das Nações and near Belém Tower also provide amazing views over the city and great entertainment offers. And why not celebrate New Year’s Eve with a typical Portuguese night? Choose the fado houses and after midnight, go out on the streets, dance the traditional music and live the genuine festive spirit of the Portuguese people.
In the beautiful city of Porto - the romantic city of Douro River and Port Wine - the boats will cruise the river with loud and pleasant music. Furthermore, this last night is celebrated with free concerts in the main streets and squares. And the firework display will be at Aliados Avenue and is one of the most surprising events in this city.
If you’re looking for a calmer New Year’s Eve, the mountains of Portugal are the perfect place. Estrela ou Gerês Mountains, for exemple, provide great experiences and you will not regret. Renting a rustic house or a chalet could be the beginning of an unforgettable New Year’s Eve. And the meteorologists already said that they expect an incredible snowy night!
