Amy Van De Casteele

A historic occasion in the world of football is about to take place when Lisbon once again becomes the venue for the UEFA Champions League Final for the first time since 1967. The final will be held on Saturday, 24 May in front of a crowd of thousands at the Estadio da Luz (stadium of light), otherwise known as the Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica. If you want to be there for this exciting sporting event check out HotelTravel.com’s selection of luxury Lisbon hotels and take advantage of our exclusive offers.

For lavish 4 star accommodation in Bairro Alto opt for Altis Prime Luxury Apartments, which offer a range of studio and one- or two-bedroom apartments, as well as a heated swimming pool and fitness centre, leading to a very high rating from HotelTravel.com customers. Also in the area you will find Tivoli Jardim Hotel, another 4 star hotel located a stone’s throw away from the World Heritage Belem Tower, which boasts a selection of business and leisure facilities to cater to your every need. Over in Baixa-Alfama, just six kilometres from Lisbon International Airport stands the elegant Altis Avenida Hotel Lisbon, a 5 star hotel which provides well-appointed guest suites, a swimming pool and spa.

When you’re not cheering on your team of choice at the stadium, devote some time to exploring Lisbon. Home to fascinating cultural sites, such as the UNESCO-listed Mosteiro dos Jerónimos and the picturesque cobbled streets of Alfama, Lisbon is the perfect place to while away a few hours or even days, immersing yourself in the city’s history and culture.

If you are not averse to blood-sports you can even watch the bull fighting at the Campo Pequeno Bullring, though if you’re visiting with children it might be preferable to take them to Oceanário with over 8,000 aquatic species ranging from sharks to stingrays and even some playful otters.

For those who would rather eat their sea-life than admire it through glass, make your way to Ramiro, which has been in business for over 60 years and serves a wide selection of marine delicacies including lobster, clams and even goose barnacles. Alternatively you can order their juicy steak sandwich, washed down with a bottle of beer or a glass of red.
