Sarah's Travel Tips for Porto

What is your best overall travel tip for Porto?

I would highly suggest staying in Gaia which is just on the other side of the Duoro river from Porto. The views of Porto from this side are amazing. Also, all the Port wine tasting cellars are on this side and it is a quick 5 min walk across the bridge to get to Porto.

Get outside and enjoy! The city is incredible and the landscape is beautiful. The river really makes this city unique. The views from below or above any of the bridges or higher points are breath taking any time of day.

Angela's Travel Tips for Porto

What is your best overall travel tip for Porto?

Book at least 4 days in Porto. 2 full days will be plenty to explore the city but an additional day to cruise up to wine country and another to explore Aveiro would be ideal.

Julie's Travel Tips for Porto

What is your best overall travel tip for Porto?

My top travel tip for this city is to spend a day in the city but also to check out the outskirts of the city to see authentic porto and not just the tourist sites. We visited a ceramist and learned about Portuguese tiles and even made some. The studio was 15 minutes outside of the city and it was a beautiful neighborhood! Porto has such an amazing art culture so it was fun to be part of it in this way! Oh! one more thing - visit the Miguel Bombarda area - the city's art district. You will find unique souvenirs here!

Pauline's Travel Tips for Porto

What is your best overall travel tip for Porto?

Our favorite restaurant was Tapabento on Rua da Madeira. This restaurant perfectly melded together Portuguese dishes with a fun and playful Asian flair. Coming from Hawaii where we have a lot of Asian influence on our food, we were able to appreciate the inventive use of the ingredients.

The food in Porto is absolutely amazing. Every meal we had was out of this world, so definitely come hungry! :-) (Oh, and bring comfy sneakers. Truly — those hills are no joke!)
