A glorious Nothernern Portuguese city, Porto is infamous for many things; its incredible port wine, the cobbled and brightly coloured district of Ribeira and the glorious Dom Luis bridge. Whether you want to spend a lazy weekend lapping up the sun and the super sweet Tawny port or hunting boutique shops in hidden alleys, check out our recommendations of things to do in Porto.
It is undeniable that Porto and its many bridges is a beautiful city and what better way to enjoy its picturesque old town and cobbled roads than enjoying a port sangria in one of the hundreds of cosy bars and hidden wine cellars? Whilst I was stunned by Porto’s beauty I was also pleasantly surprised by the really great quality for money this city is so we passed most of our time basking in the sun in wine terraces and restaurant’s patios so read our recommendations of bars and restaurants in this picturesque city.
A picturesque harbour of sun-bathed houses painted in bright yellows, warm oranges and pastel pinks, Porto is the perfect city break for those looking to sit back and relax with a classic glass of Port (or three!). Boasting seven magnificent bridges and many more antique port wine cellars, this quaint city is easy one of the most beautiful destinations I've visited. And of course if you're more interested in the architecture, the history, or the culture rather than sitting amongst the cobbled streets and watching the world go by, Porto is rich with tourist attractions.
