The cultural Beverly-Hills in Portugal.
We are on our way to Porto (the three time winner of European Best Destinations’s competition) leaving our grey headquarters in Brussels and eager to discover two prestigious places: the Crowne Plaza Porto and the InterContinental Palacio das Cardosas.
There we are! The sun is shining, it is nice and warm in the very chic and pleasant neighbourhood of Foz. We are facing the sea and just a few minutes from the historical centre of Porto. The Crowne Plaza Porto hotel is 14km away from the airport and 5 minutes from the historic centre of Porto. If you take the taxi from the airport, please ask the taxi driver to drive along the seaside to enjoy this very nice neighbourhood of Porto.
The Crowne Plaza Porto is an exceptional hotel. It is very well located in Porto and close to the Serralves Foundation that is famous for its prestigious exhibitions. It is also close to the Casa da Musica, an architectural masterpiece that welcomes the world's greatest conductors. It is a stone's throw from the sea and the trendy, elegant neighbourhood of Foz the "Portuguese Beverly Hills".
