Located in Parque das Nações, Hotel Olissippo Oriente is located in the new and vibrant urban centre, within proximity of major leisure centres: Lisbon’s Oceanary, Vasco da Gama Shopping Centre and the Lisbon Casino. Nearby is one of the world’s most spectacular aquariums and everywhere you turn is a glimpse of the river looking like an ocean crossed by Europe’s longest bridge.
The Lisbon International Airport is just 3 km away. The hotel can be easily accessed by taxi or by Metro (Red line, Direction: “S.Sebastião”) at the stop “Oriente”. The hotel is a short 5 minute walk from the Oriente station.
Must Visit (close to the Hotel)
The Vasco da Gama shopping center has unique architectural features where you will find 164 stores, which include 36 restaurants, 10 cinemas, Health Club, Children’s Playground and several other customer services. Located just a 5 minute walk from the conference venue.
Opened in 1998, the Oceanário was the centerpiece of the XXth Century’s last World Fair, themed “The Oceans, a Heritage for the Future”, and eternally binds Lisbon to the Oceans. With over one million visitors per year, the Oceanário welcomes the largest number of patrons anywhere in the country. While walking through impressive and unforgettable exhibits, visitors are encouraged to learn fascinating things about the oceans and, more importantly, how to make decisions in their daily lives that actively promote the conservation of nature.
The Lisbon Oceanarium was recognized as the best aquarium in Europe in 2014 and the second in the world by TripAdvisor, and is located less than a 10 minute walk from the conference venue.
Casino of Lisbon
Lisbon’s casino is a younger and more contemporary version of the largest casino in Europe found outside the city in the seaside town of Estoril. In addition to the gaming tables and slot machines expected at any casino, there is a large minimalist space for eating and drinking. The restaurants are known for their innovative dishes, while the auditorium presents major national and international shows (there are also nightly acrobatic shows at the rotating “Arena Lounge”). Our conference venue is located just next to the casino.
