1. Porto


Porto is definitely one of the most beautiful welcoming and tolerant cities in Europe. It enjoys a gentle climate throughout the year, although mist sometimes gets as far as the Dom Luis I bridge (created by one of Gustave Eiffel's students). The city looks a bit like San Francisco. In fact, many startups as well as large companies come to settle there. Porto is also known for its gastronomy and wine but if nostalgia grips you, you will find one of the finest Mac Donald's in the former Imperial Café. The Portuguese are smart and friendly and you will find English spoken in many places.


Ready to go? If you want to live like a citizen of Porto, we invite you to rent an apartment, we recommend Porto Moments Apartments located in the beautiful wine cellars district.
