Snapshot Guide

Porto is a place rich in history and uniqueness and has long been designated a hidden gem, it has every offering that you could want.

One of the best ways to see the city is to book a cruise tour on the Douro River. Another popular tour the six bridges tour. There’s no better way to see the medieval buildings, stunning landscape and interesting spots than to glide through the waters with a front row seat.

With plenty of traditional foods to sample, make sure you try a food and wine tasting tour, it’s the best guilt-free indulging experience you could hope for!

The seafront is stunning. Packed with bars and restaurants, it’s the trendy arena where you can easily spend a whole day. Hit the water, share moments with family and friends, explore the local shops – it’s the place to be in Porto (we recommend trying Praia dos Ingleses).

You must stop at the Ribeira – it’s buzzing, with excellent places to look back out over the River (Douro). It’s a cultural hub and a tourist dream with live performers, places to eat and space to soak in the vibe right into the night.

A trip wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Mercado Bom Sucesso – the iconic restored marketplace. Browse or buy, both are welcome. From food, souvenirs and interesting one-offs, part of the fun is not knowing what you might find.

Porto is a gorgeous and alluring place that you’d not be disappointed to visit.
