See the best of Oporto from two distinct vantage points and taste the eponymous local tipple.

 

Journey through the hustle and bustle and explore the heart of the city on a panoramic drive. Pass by grand City Hall with its 230-foot clock tower; the monumental 12th century cathedral; and the beautiful Baroque Clerigos Church. 

To truly appreciate the city’s riverside sights, you need to go out on the water. Admire Porto’s handsome houses with granite stone façades and red tile roofs, which sit side by side with palaces and aristocratic residences, and count the famous six bridges that cross the Douro.

Visit the city of Vila Nova de Gaia on the opposite bank of the river, famous for the cellars where port wine matures. Settle in at one of the best-known wine lodges in the area and try some of the local varieties.
