So, where do Americans love to travel to most?
You might imagine Italy. Or Paris… because everyone loves France. Perhaps London, England. Even Spain might get some love.
But in a USA Today poll, Portugal received top marks from the magazine’s readers and was voted 2014’s ‘Best European Country’ to travel to.
“Much underrated Portugal has all the trappings of a pretty European country: cobbled villages beneath the shadows of medieval castles, sun-kissed beaches, a delectable culinary tradition and plenty of history to explore,” writes USA Today.
“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, Portugal’s understated beauty becomes obvious.”
