A Visit to Porto 0

In March, Culture Compass,  travel PR agency, Hills Balfour, and Portuguese airline, TAP sent me on a press trip to Porto. The Porto and Northern Portugal Tourism Board gave me a wonderful four-day tour of this ancient city, which is undergoing significant renewal, with an architecturally spectacular concert hall, modern art museum and cutting-edge food scene.

A principal focus of the trip was the Fantasporto Film Festival. Now running for thirty years, the festival has showcased early work from Danny Boyle, Pedro Almodovar and Peter Jackson.

My review of the trip for Culture Compass is here.
