One of the most sought after places by tourists, Porto was elected the second best city in Europe in 2021, behind only Istanbul, Turkey. The voting took place through the readers of Condé Nast Traveller magazine, in the 34th edition of the Readers’ Choice Awards. To make the list of the best cities in Europe, Condé Nast Traveller took into account criteria such as world-class dining scene, many elegant hotels, friendly inhabitants, and intriguing history.
If the merit is all the city’s, the pride is also ours; after all, Porto is winning over more and more visitors from all over the world! With its rich architecture and unique landscape, it is not hard to fall in love with this place!
But the good news does not stop there. In the same award, Portugal received the title of the best destination in the world in 2021! In the 34th edition of the magazine, the voting counted with nearly 800 thousand registered readers who shared their experiences in cities, countries, islands, hotels, resorts, spas, cruises, trains, airlines, and airports around the world.
Since Porto was elected the second best city in Europe in 2021 and Portugal the best destination this year, can we already look forward to the upturn in tourism? Absolutely! And these fruits that the country is reaping are the result of hard work from the most diverse sectors that directly contribute for the success of tourism in our nation.
