The revenue obtained from the tax imposed by Porto on visitors has exceeded the city’s expectations by 50 percent.

According to the northern city, the tax, which came into force last March, currently generates an average of 750,000 euros for the northern city’s coffers. Porto is also looking to increase revenue obtained from local lodging, saying it hopes to have 90 percent of all licence holders pay the tourist tax by the end of the year.
