The 20-minute city
Famous for being a highly accessible city, it is well known that all the high-profile locations, including the city centre, the airport and all of the surrounding beaches can be reached within 20 minutes. It is also said that any of the city’s tourist attractions and hotspots can be accessed on foot within 20 minutes, when walking from any of the city’s hotels.
