Porto Cruises

You may only know Porto for its most famous export, port wine, but this charming Portuguese city offers many hidden features to explore! It sits along the River Douro, building up from its banks with its blend of historic medieval buildings and cutting-edge modern architecture. Have a wander through its sleepy back streets to uncover the mellow sophistication of daily life here, whether it’s the wrought iron balconies or elegant park fountains. Don’t miss top sights like the neoclassical Palacio da Bolsa, rubbing shoulders with modern marvels like the Rem Koolhas-designed Casa de Musica.

PORTO - DID YOU KNOW?

It’s easy to explore Porto’s city centre on foot, with the Douro sitting at its base and the old town sloping its way up the hill on enchanting cobbled streets. Climb up a few blocks and you’ll be rewarded with picture-perfect views over the terracotta rooftops below! The Bombarda district is a trendy hub for art and design. Walk around Miguel Bombarda Street to explore its art galleries, hip cafes, and vintage shops while soaking in the atmosphere. Nearby is Liberty Square, surrounded by stunning neoclassical buildings. Apart from the port wine (which is served in plentiful wine shops around town), Porto offers a delectable blend of cuisine to go with it. Don’t miss the chance to try the local delicacy, a francesinha. This sandwich is filled with steak, sausage, and ham, all smothered in cheese and spicy tomato sauce! You’ll need a fork and knife to tackle this dish – it’s not exactly picnic fare. Livaria Lello is perhaps the most famous shop in Porto, a must-see for any book enthusiast. It’s where JK Rowling started writing the first Harry Potter novel, which is clear when you have a look around at the wood panelling, ornate carvings and twisting staircases.
