    Has anyone been to either Lisbon or Valencia?

    My Stag weekend is being organised for September and these are the 2 destinations that have finally come up with.

    I've had quite a few people recommend Lisbon and it looks really good, but Valencia looks good as well.

    Any one want to share their experiences of these places?

    Thanks

    Not sure how you might find it for a stag w/e,but Lisbon is superb....great food,good bars,but the police may be less than forgiving.

    As to another suggestion above...Madrid would also get my vote on all counts.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my couple of weeks in Lisbon last year and definately want to go back there. I'm not sure it's the best place for a Stag weekend though, Amsterdam or Prague seem to be popular ;)

    Thanks for your replies.

    Right....

    I've been to Prague before and Amsterdam is like a second home to me to be honest (I've lost count of the number of times I've been, I know the place like the back of my hand!)

    The girls are off to Barcelona for the Hen weekend and I've been to Madrid. I want to go somewhere both me and my best man have not been before.

    The people that are going are not the mad, crazy p*** head types so I am not worried about the Police or getting into trouble (average age of the group is about 35 and other than me they are virtually all married with kids). So that's not really a concern, a good laugh will be had by all, but we're not rowdy or drunken yobs. More of a good weekend away with close friends than a typical 20 pints per day and a fight each stag do!

    There'll be about 8-10 going and half the group myself included speak virtually fluent Spanish and 3 of the guys speak good Portugese so I'm split over which one. They've apparently both good decent beaches, I'm favouring Lisbon at the moment as I've never been before.

    Any more thoughts

    Thanks

    Come on guys give me some input

    I'll correct that last sentence.....

    I meant to say "I'm favouring Lisbon as I've never been to Portugal, but I've been to Spain (although not Valencia) lots of times

    Thanks

    I went to Barcelona for mine. It’s got everything you could want – a cosmopolitan city with beaches (full of topless babes :D ) a massive theme park not too far away, clubs galore and lots and lots of sun! What more do you want?
