Portugal has done it again and this time Americans voted for Portugal as the best country in Europe for travelling and tourism.
USA Today and 10Best asked their readers to vote for the top 10 Best European Countries. The choices were between 20 European countries chosen by tourism industry experts and the final decision came from readers and users of these two American giants.
End result: absolute victory for Portugal – ahead of Italy, Spain, Austria, Germany, France and the UK.
“Europe is full of amazing destinations, and we asked 10Best and USA TODAY readers to choose their favorite. Votes are in for the 10Best Readers’ Choice award for Best European Country, and beautiful Portugal has been crowned the winner.”
“Much underrated Portugal has all the most desired features of a top European destination: beautiful villages beneath the shadows of medieval castles, sun-kissed beaches, a delectable culinary tradition and plenty of history to explore.”
“Whether swimming in the turquoise waters of the Algarve, sipping a glass of port at a Porto cafe or listening to the melancholy lament of a fadista in Lisbon (pictured here), visitors to Portugal find an understated beauty that often surprises.”
