Algarve aims to impress foreign students

Around 1,200 foreign students of the University of the Algarve (UAlg) are to be treated to a cultural trip around the region to see what it has to offer during the low season. The idea is that the students will then act as “ambassadors” and promote the region when they return to their home countries.

The initiative is part of the ‘365 Algarve’ programme designed to turn the Algarve into a year-round tourism destination.
