Porto – 1-2 days

Porto is a beautiful city sat on the Douro River, and is famous for its production of delicious port wine. Portugal’s second city is less frenetic than Lisbon, and offers a calm but vibrant getaway. Wander through Sta Catarina street to Majestic café and pop inside the S. Bento train station to admire the gorgeous interiors. Take a peep at nearby Clérigos Tower, inside the third most beautiful and world-famous LELLO bookshop. Don’t miss a trip to a winery over the bridge in Vila Nova de Gaia, where the port wine is barrel-aged and bottled – a guided tour comes highly recommended.
