2019 Porto City Break


From $974

Description

Porto is the second largest city in Portugal, known as “Cidade Invicta”, the city that was never conquered. Located by the Douro River, Porto has been named “Best European Destination 2017”. Its historical center, never touched by invaders, is registered as a World Heritage site by UNESCO. The historical value of the Old Cathedral, the Church of St. Francis and the Torre dos Clérigos combine with the contemporary buildings as the Serralves Museum and the “Casa da Música” (house of music), revealing the unique climate of the city.

The riverbanks – Ribeira and Gaia, connected by the Luis I bridge, present the most known picture of Porto. Those are the best places to taste the city. Visit famous wine cellars in Gaia and enjoy a glass of Port wine at the end of your wine tour. Or sit in one of restaurants in Ribeira and try one of Porto´s specials: the “tripas a moda do Porto” – connected with the history of the city, or “francesinha” hot sandwich with special sauce.

The city never sleeps. Porto´s downtown is the core of the nightlife, especially in the weekends it gets really full, all year long. Almost every bar and music club is crowded. Ribeira and Foz are also important places on the night map of Porto, where the historical architecture blends with music and art.
