A colourful riverside town that is bursting with character. Narrow lanes zigzag through the centre and bell towers soar high above splendid baroque churches. While a vibrant social scene is abuzz, as Port is sampled in riverside wine cafes and cellars.
Porto may be emerging as a vibrant arts capital, but its historic roots are still evident in the cobblestone streets, celebrated monuments and medieval districts. Glimpse into the past as you discover village-style plazas and roman ruins. Then embrace the stylish accommodation, cool bars and Michelin-starred dining that catapult Porto into present day. Absorb the colourful atmosphere of the UNESCO-certified Ribeira district and the bohemian vibe of gallery-lined Rua Miguel Bombarda, with its cutting-edge exhibitions and lively street festivities.
