Porto is the “Best European Destination 2017”

Porto, Portugal, has been voted the Best European Destination in 2017 by the European Best Destinations organization. Porto wins the recognition for the 3rd time with a record number of 138,116 votes. Porto also won the title in 2012 and 2014.

The second place was awarded to Milan, Italy and the third place to Gdansk, Poland. Porto competed with cities such as Barcelona, Paris, London and Amsterdam.


Porto the capital of northern  Portugal - set near the Atlantic on  the Douro River. Portugal’s second largest city, Porto is known worldwide for its production of Port wine, which comes from the vineyards lining the Douro River Valley, a World Heritage Site.


In fact, Porto is where Portugal gets its name. Today the city is thriving,  with a reborn Ribeira (riverfront) district, historic cobblestone squares with eateries and cafes. Gaia, across the Douro, is the home to Port wine - and boasts dozens of Port wine estates. TAP and SATA both offer flights from the US to Porto.
