If you are interested about history, especially culinary history, Porto is a city you won’t want to miss.
Our trip in Porto lasted two days and two nights, but we actually visited the city in one day. The period when we visited was mid-December, so there weren’t too many tourists around.
In this mini guide we’ll share with you the tour we did during our day’s visit. My granny was with us, so we took it easy and preferred to see thoroughly few places rather than rush.
Where to stay?
We rented an airbnb (here’s the link to the listing) on the other side of the river, in Vila Nova de Gaia, that had this view:
Not bad, huh?
If you also would like to stay in this apartment or anyways book through airbnb, here’s a 30€ discount for new members that you can use immediately for your first trip.
How to move around?
Even though we arrived to Porto by car, we didn’t use the car in the city as we figured it’d be challenging to find parking spots. We took the bus instead.
Tip! Porto is very hilly. Study the route you’ll want to take and decide consequently when it is wiser to walk (downhill) or to take a bus (uphill). We personally took a bus on our way to the city center and then walked the way back to our apartment.
