Portugal is a small country, big on diversity. Portugal offers a wide variety of regions and environments for every taste. From a relaxed celebration at Alentejo or Douro Valley, to parties in the big cities like Lisbon and Porto or even a New Year's Eve at the beach in Algarve. 

Here's some inspiration for a New Year's Eve in Portugal you won't forget:

New Years Eve in Porto

New Year's Eve is a great time to discover Porto and Lisbon. In Porto, the last night of the year is celebrated with free concerts in the main streets and squares and a firework display by the river, near the typical Ribeira neighbourhood, where people gather around both margins of the Douro River to watch the celebrations and the main attraction, the fireworks above the Luiz I Bridge. You can submit a request for a unique new year's eve in Porto and step in 2020 in the best way.

New Year's Eve in Lisbon

In Lisbon, the City Council also promotes a big celebration party in Praça do Comércio (also known as Terreiro do Paço) one of the prime squares of the city, with concerts and fireworks. Parque das Nações and near Torre de Belém also provide great entertainment offers and if you are willing to have an amazing view over the city and the fireworks by the Tejo River, Castelo de São Jorge, one of the highest places of the city, open up to the public to midnight celebrations. The Portuguese capital has so much to offer in the last night of the year, and the best way to live it fully, is to plan your new year's eve in Lisbon in advance with the help of experts.

New Year's Eve in the Douro Region

The Douro region is a great choice every time of the year, but on the last days of December you can enjoy Douro from other point of view: the warmth of a luxury hotel and the celebration by the fireplace tasting some of the best wines produced in the region, never losing the river and its vineyards out of sight. We recommend a 3-day tour in Douro, or, if you prefer you can request a free quote for an unforgettable new year's eve in Douro , just before it turns 2019.
