Porto voted the preferred European destination for Americans

Airbnb recently did a research on where in Europe their American users are planning or willing to travel in the near future. The preferred destinations surprised them and their readers also. The number one preferred destination is Porto, in Portugal.

Portugal’s second largest city, Porto, has been a popular destination for European travellers for the past few years since is located just 2-3 hours by plane from the most important European cities. The increasing number of low cost flights operating to and from the city have spread the curiosity about the city. The North region of the country is known for its natural landscape, like the Douro Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Porto is described as a city for those who are looking for “wine, parties in summertime, historic churches and bell towers, and Baroque and Beaux-Arts architecture”. And Airbnb gives an advice to their readers: since many Americans are planning to travel to Porto the best choice is to “[…] get there before everyone else does!”

Visiting Europe has always been a dream vacation for Americans, but destinations like London, Paris and Rome used to top preferences. The fact that Porto is the number one on the list even took Airbnb by surprise.

Here is the complete top 5:

  1. Porto
  2. Milan
  3. Lyon
  4. Budapest
  5. Dublin
Also on the list of the preferred destinations to travel from San Francisco is Porto, followed by Vienna and Stockholm.
