A World Heritage site, Porto is an historic city with rare architectural value.
The medieval town tumbles down to the river Douro, with tight, twisting streets leading into Renaissance squares, and discover Baroque monuments.
You’ll find superb views of the city from inside the convent at Serra do Pilar, looking out over the iron bridges of the industrial age, with the Cais da Ribeira district providing the perfect backdrop for views of the stunning D. Luís Bridge.
Take a walk along the river Douro past the impressive buildings of the Alfândega customs area and the coloured houses resting on arches on Miragaia street.
Or visit “downtown” Porto, with its bustling streets and cafes and the Bolhão market.
Choose one of the many picturesque river view restaurants down in the Ribeira, and enjoy some traditional Porto cuisine. Or take a trip to the other bank of the Douro, with its Port Cellars and Rabelo port boats plying the river.
