Explore Lisbon Portugal For Less
In these hard-hitting financial times, Portugal looks like an extremely smart option for a holiday. It is economical and uncomplicated to get to for independent travelers, and it offers some of the best-value package holidays in the Euro Zone. If you steer clear of touristy gimmicky bars and restaurants and eat and drink with the locals instead, you can save even more and that would make your experience richer. The best thing about Lisbon is that you won’t have to look to the off season to get better deals. Hotels are affordable and rates do not vary too much during the year. There are not many chain hotels in Lisbon but there are many non chain quaint hotels in Lisbon.
The Tiara Park Atlantic, which looks like a Grand Hyatt, offers rates as low as $130 per night in the summer. Eurostars Das Letras is another gorgeous contemporary hotel, just a short metro ride away from the old Alfama district of the city with rates as low as $145 per night. A bit more upscale is the Avenida Palace where rates hover around $223 per night. The hotel has a great central location close to quite a few important landmarks, including: Castelo de Sao Jorge, Convento do Carmo and Se Cathedral to name a few.
For transportation the iconic yellow trams aren’t the only efficient way to get around Lisbon. The city has a widespread metro, bus, and tram networks will help you steer your way around town ably and inexpensively. A good idea would be to buy a re-loadable Viva Viagem card and use it throughout the city’s extensive metro, bus, tram, and ferry system. For longer periods of vacation consider a monthly unlimited pass, which goes for about $38. There are many reasonably priced restaurants, especially in the Alfama district. Customary meals can be had for under $15 per person and ordering off the specials board will get you the freshest food at the best rate.
Museums are a big attraction in this city, and the Lisbon Tourist Card can be a money saver if used properly. Cardholders get free entry to public transport and over 80 museums and attractions, f which the most noteworthy are The National Pantheon, the Belem Tower and Palacio Nacional da Ajuda, with discounts of up to 30% on other select museums. The pass also grants a discount on Aerobus airport shuttle tickets. The catch is that the card is valid only till a very short amount of time. If you are a student with a valid student ID, you will frequently get related discounts at museums and attractions, so keep that in mind when deciding whether or not to buy the card.
