Share post:

Respect for heritage, the use of public transport to get to know Porto and respect for residents at night are some of the tips included in the manifesto of good practices for tourists created by the municipality.

As part of the “Future Vision for the sustainability of Destination Porto” initiative, the manifesto lists a series of tips to follow with regard to nightlife, accommodation and city tours and visits.

Buying and supporting local businesses, tasting the gastronomy, enjoying Port wine but drinking it in moderation, paying attention to noise so as not to disturb the residents and not using the streets and walls as toilets are some of the recommendations in the manifesto, which aims to involve and make tourists aware of the good practices they should adopt when visiting Porto.

As for accommodation, the manifesto recommends, among other things, reusing towels, saving energy and water, and respecting the rules of the establishment.

Exploring the city using public transport or bicycles and respecting the directions to each tourist attraction are other tips for those visiting the city.

According to Porto City Hall, two actions are planned for Wednesday to promote the launch of the manifesto: at Francisco Sá Carneiro airport and in Rua de Santa Catarina and Rua das Flores.

At the airport, the manifesto will be distributed to travelers arriving in Porto to “make them aware of the impact of their behavior on the destination”.

On Rua de Santa Catarina and Rua das Flores, “a box of emotions from Porto” will be offered, with the aim of “publicizing, involving and committing tourists to signing the manifesto”.

At 15:30, the councillor responsible for Tourism and Internationalization, Catarina Santos Cunha, is scheduled to appear at Rua de Santa Catarina.
