Portugal was one of the most praised countries during the fight against the pandemic. And with the opening of trade and borders, it has become the destination of choice for foreigners who want to enjoy the summer with more peace of mind. At the beginning of the month, the Forbes website revealed the 20 safest places in Europe to travel post-Coronavirus. And it’s with great happiness that three important Portuguese areas were included in the list.
Did you know that Portugal was the first destination to receive the “Safe Travels” stamp awarded by the WTTC (World Travel & Tourism Council)? The stamp certifies places that comply with hygiene and safety rules, such as bars, restaurants and hotels post-coronavirus. This assures travellers that the country can be an excellent option. Furthermore, the Government, which took extreme measures during the pandemic, and which were also followed by the population, can now enjoy good results.
Among the places mentioned by the magazine, the Azores Islands, the Algarve and the Alentejo region were the elected Portuguese destinations. Many of these places had a very low rate of coronavirus infection, so besides the natural beauties, this factor was extremely relevant to the choice.
