Porto is one of Portugal’s oldest cities. To find out more about its history and culture you can walk its well-signposted guide route.
Experience a nostalgic journey with an old-fashioned tram ride to Foz, where the River Douro meets the Atlantic Ocean. Or visit the great churches and monuments evoking some of the great personalities and events of Portuguese history.
Explore the riverside neighbourhood of the Ribeira Circuit and discover the Casa do Infante, the Trading Palace, or the renowned Rua Ferreira Borges and the well-preserved Rua de Miragaia.
On a Douro cruise you’ll see the imposing bridges that connect the past and future of the city of Porto, and also get the best views of the narrow streets leading up from the river.
Just a few kilometres away you’ll discover Póvoa de Varzim and Vila do Conde. Another highlight of the region is Amarante, one of Portugal’s most romantic cities, with its timeless Tâmega river, known locally as the ‘eternal bride’.
