Porto is a fascinating and vibrant city that is quickly becoming one of the most respected tourist destinations in Western Europe. The city boasts an extensive history, interesting tourist attractions , bustling nightlife and outstanding tourist sites. There is something to see and do in Porto, and this diverse city will appeal to a wide range of visitors.
Porto is a historic and diverse city, from the narrow streets that make up the ancient Ribeira district to the majestic square of the Trindade district. The region is famous for the production of port wine (rich fortified wine), which is still stored and matures in huge cellars that stretch along the banks of the Douro River.
The Ribeira district is the oldest district of the city, with its labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets, old houses and squares .
The vibrant nightlife of Porto caters to people of all ages and all levels; here you can find everything from gourmet dinners to nightclubs.
At a minimum, exploring Porto requires two full days of sightseeing. The first day will be devoted to exploring the historical center (Xie district), Baixa district and Ribeira region, and may include a small yacht cruise along the Douro River . The second day will be devoted to the Vila Nova de Gaia region (located on the southern banks of the Douro River) and the Foz district, and may include a tour of the port cellars and port tasting.
The evening can be spent in the vibrant restaurants of the Ribeira district, or head to the bars and clubs near the Rua Galeria de Paris University (the area is known as Bar Street!).
Note: one day is not enough to visit Porto, and we always recommend focusing on at least two days.
Portuguese cuisine, which is deprived of some neighboring European countries, is extremely underestimated. Traditional dishes are packed with flavors as rich as the local culture. Ingredients used include fish, meat, olive oil and spices. During yacht cruises, you will visit coastal cities with restaurants serving some of the best fish on the continent. After a long day of swimming, do not forget to treat yourself to Pastéis de nata, the most famous pastry in Portugal.
Overall, Porto and northern Portugal are usually cooler and wetter than the rest of the country. The peak season is from June to the end of August, and this time is determined by hot and dry weather, which is suitable for spending time on the beaches .
The Porto tourist season starts in May and lasts until the end of October, and the spring / autumn weather is ideal for sightseeing and day trips. In winter, it is very likely that it will rain, but since Porto is a large city, all restaurants, bars and hotels remain open.
We invite you for an unforgettable boat trip to one of the most picturesque valleys in Europe . From a short cruise on five Porto bridges in the afternoon to a multi-day river cruise, we will provide you with individual conditions to meet your wishes. We also organize special events for groups of tourists - such as stag parties, company team trainings, birthdays, honeymoon for couples, weekends and much more.
