Cais da Ribeira, as the quays at the banks of Douro River are called, will bewitch any visitor with its beautiful scenery. Restaurants and bars along the river create a welcoming and unforgettable atmosphere. The scenic D.... More

I fell in love with Porto after strolling through the many cobble stone streets of the city's port area. The sights, smells, and scenery was breath-taking. Beautiful both day and night, no trip to Porto is complete without a visit here. Beware the beggars and brush up on your Portuguese if you plan to eat or shop though!

In Porto, this is the best area to have lunch, have a walk, enjoy the views of the city. You can go from here to "Foz" by tram, which i very nice !

The oldest and most picturesque part of the city. Great views, riverside walks, old narrow streets, restaurants and cafes. Stroll and look up for the beautiful old houses. Beware of some remote streets, a lot of drunkards, drug dealers and suspicious faces.
