Highlights of a Free Tour in Porto

The historic center of Porto was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1996 for its beautifully preserved streets, colorful houses and scenic old port. With so much to see, we recommend booking a Free Tour in Porto well in advance to make sure you don’t miss any of the many secret wonders the second biggest town in Portugal has to offer! Some of the most emblematic places in this city are the Dom Luis I Bridge, Sao Bento Train Station, Clerigos Church, The Stock Exchange Palace (Palacio da Bolsa), San Francisco Church, the Cathedral, the Arrabida Bridge and the Bolhao Market. Culture enthusiasts will also love Casa da Musica Theater, the Crystal Palace Gardens and the Contemporary Art Museum of Serralves. And you can’t miss Lello Bookstore: it’s such a magical place, it appeared in the Harry Potter saga as Flourish and Blotts Bookseller in Diagon Alley!

Things to Do in Porto

Porto is usually seen as the perfect weekend getaway for travelers enjoying the beaches of Southern Portugal, but there are so many interesting things to do in the city you could easily spend one busy week here! Visiting century-old wine cellars and joining a port tasting is a mandatory activity in the city. There are dozens of charming wine cellars lined up on the riverside of the Vila Nova de Gaia neighborhood, so you can pick one (or several!) to try several varieties for a cheap fee. After drinking, you might want to check out some of the wonderful fresh markets in town to grab a bite. We suggest visiting iconic Bolhao Market and Bom Sucesso Market for authentic francesinhas (a rich deep-fried sandwich), alheira sausage or an exceptional codfish casserole. For outdoor activities, large sandy beaches with surfing activities are available in spring and summer at Matosinhos Beach or Praia dos Ingleses.
