Flights to Porto

Porto, Portugal’s second largest city, packs just as much of a punch as the capital. Its old town, Ribeira, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, while just a stone’s throw from its historic walls you'll find Livraria Lello – the bookshop that inspired the library in Harry Potter. Enjoy the city's moreish food scene on patios bathed in sunlight, and stretch out on the golden sands that run along the beach-filled coast.
