This short video serves as the presentation for our website and explains some of the topics we will be discussing here.
This year, the city of Porto has been awarded for the third time this decade as the best European destination to travel by the European Best Destinations. They mention that “Never has the choice of the winning city been so unanimous among travellers from all over the world”. This is a clear sign, that the quality of tourism in this city is growing at a fast pace. This poses the question of how can we keep improving to satisfy the numbers of new visitors arriving in Porto?
In these blog we are not only going to be talking about the beauty of Porto, the exquisite and unique Ribeira, our famous food and wine, our ex-libris a torre dos Clérigos, the beautiful library Lello, or the mystic Majestic, but also about other places you don’t usually hear in the guidebooks. We will also be discussing different types of tourism that we rarely hear. Like sexual tourism, tourism of drugs or even death tourism. We want to find out if they are interesting choices for Porto. Finally we want to understand the consequences this brings for the native people.
