All about Porto tourism

Porto is the second-largest city in Portugal and one of the country's most charming and historic tourist destinations. Whether we're talking wineries or museums, it's clear that Porto tourism revolves around the scenic Douro river and the city's colorful buildings along the water will be a near-constant backdrop to your Porto holidays.

Your first stop when you visit Porto should be the Cais da Ribeira, a cafe-filled riverside walkway offering priceless views of the river and the Dom Luís Bridge. If the weather's nice, opt for a cruise on the Douro on a traditional "rabelo" boat. It's sure to be one of the most enchanting moments of your holiday to Porto.

Many trips to Porto are also based on discovering the city's famous namesake wine: Port. In the hills just outside the city, you'll find several wineries like Croft which let globe-trotting wine connoisseurs discover one the entire process behind one of the world's greatest wines. It's something you simply can't miss on your Porto vacation.

Tourism in Porto, though, is more than just wine. Your trip to Porto is the chance to discover some of Portugal's most historic sights like the Porto Cathedral and the absolutely stunning Palacio da Bolsa. With so much to see, it's tempting to get caught up filling your Porto travel itinerary to the brim. However, make sure to save plenty of time to just stroll through Ribeira square, have a drink near the water, and enjoy Porto's uniquely historic seaside ambiance.
