The north American news agency Bloomberg highlights the Lisbon "artistic scene", the good weather in winter and the growing air conections to the United States as reasons to visit the country.
"Who knew it before it and who sees it now" - is more or less what Bloomberg says about Portugal and its rise to the fore during the last years. The truth is that the country has gained an important place in the heart of foreign tourists, who seem to have discovered this Paradise in the westen Europe.
Bloomberg has elected , as usual at this time of year, a list with 20 destinations to visit in 2017 and, in the third position is Portugal. There are several reasons to visit the country, from the boom of the Lisbon "artistic scene" - with the opening of the new, Berardo Museum (with art nouveau and art deco collections) and the Portuguese Jewish Museum - to the excelente weather all year.
In addition, the increasingly direct and frequent air conections between Portugal and the United States of America supports the agency's arguments. United Airlines and Delta Air Lines will inaugurate direct flights from Newark and New York, respectively, to the Portuguese capital, which will facilitate the visit of US tourists to our country.
