▼ TOURIST REVIEW

Lisbon is the westernmost large city located in Europe, as well as its westernmost capital city and the only one along the Atlantic coast. It lies in the western Iberian Peninsula on the Atlantic Ocean and the Tagus River. Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world, outdating other modern European capitals such as London, Paris and Rome by hundreds of years. Lisbon enjoys a Mediterranean climate. Among all the metropolises in Europe, it has the warmest winters (together with Barcelona), with average temperatures 15 °C (59 °F) during the day and 8 °C (46 °F) at night in the period from December to February. The typical summer’s season lasts about six months, from May to October, although also in November, March and April temperatures sometimes reach around 20 °C (68.0 °F).

▼ ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS: HOTEL & BUNGALLOW PARK (20 minutes from Benfica Academy)

The Benfica Coaching Camp experience is based on accommodation located outside the Club´s football soccer academy. Move Sports has two options available for your team. The first option is based at a 4 star standard hotel located on the most extensive and famous beach setting of Lisbon, this hotel is ideal as it is only 20 minutes away from the academy and offers all players a magnificent view and area to explore when they are not playing football.  The second option is based at the local bungalow park (see picture above). If your team´s budget is not of a 4 star standard we have developed this cheaper option based on magnificent bungalows at a holiday park located walking distance from the best beach in Lisbon. The restaurant where your players will be having their dinners is also located at the park and it is of excellent quality.
