As one of the oldest cities in Portugal, Porto also leads the way to modernity and industry in the country. The second-largest city in Portugal after Lisbon proudly shows its old beauty owing to the Douro River, where a cruise is more than a must-do to enjoy a sunny afternoon on the water.
Porto is a city of wines and you won’t want to return home without paying a visit to the cellars that have witnessed centuries go by while their great ports age. A special tasting will include some Tawny or Vintage glasses, which may have been bottled 100 years ago. Wouldn't it be an inspiring experience to the palate a wine harvested and produced before you were born?
Porto is also a Mecca of gastronomy and your taste buds will appreciate its wide variety of dishes, from street food in the form of cakes or fried fish, to refined Michelin-starred restaurants. Porto is a treasure that is best enjoyed at a slow pace!
