“USA Today travel”: Reader’s choice awards for best European Country… check the results! GUESS WHO WON #1?

“In our 10Best Reders’ Choice contest for ‘Best European Country,’ voting was heaviest for one nominee in particular. Portugal has apparently stolen the hearts of our readers as it secured the lion’s share of votes.

Portugal is less iconic than other well-known countries, but it offers a wealth of opportunities to travelers: charming villages, great food, fascinating regional music, cultural opportunities, a beautiful coastline and even world-class surfing.

Italy and Austria landed solid in second and third, while a mere 47 votes separated 4th place finisher Germany from Spain in 6th place. The (very large) United Kingdom, with no language barriers for Americans and a wealth of well-known landmarks, took 5th place.

The biggest surprise? Iceland, which trumped Greece, Norway, and several other more exotic countries, to land in the top 10.

The full list of winners in the ‘Best European Country’ contest category for 10Best Readers’ Choice is as follows:

Portugal
Italy
Austria
Germany
United Kingdom
Spain
Ireland
France
Iceland
Switzerland”
