Portugal - alongside with Saudi Arabia, Cancun (Mexico), Barcelona and Seville (Spain) - is one of the first tourist destinations to receive the "Safe Travels" global safety and hygiene stamp, created by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) to recognise governments and businesses around the world which have adopted health and hygiene global standardised protocols in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Lisbon, the city that leads all the "best travel destination" top charts in the last few years, is an undiscovered pearl, even for people who've already visited it. There is a hidden secret in each corner. If you still don't have plans for when this confinement period ends, keep reading about Lisbon: you'll immediately have plenty.
Portugal was awarded the ITB Earth Award 2019. This annual award highlights destinations with a strategy for tourism that favours sustainable development and contributes to fighting climate change and environmental degradation.
Sports tourism, especially sports tours and corporate sports events, should be a strategic priority for Portugal’s tourism. The defence of this strategic bet is made by António Cunha, CEO of Move Sports, in an interview with Notícias Magazine, published last February 19.
The World Travel Awards has no doubts about choosing Portugal and Lisbon as the number one destination for any person who wants to travel in 2019.
