The place to go

Riverside in Porto (Vila Nova Gaia as well) is the place to go. Great views on city, one of calmer places in busy town, still offering many dining options.

By every measure, this is the top tourist attraction, but don't avoid it for that reason. The Ribeira is the heart of charming Porto. Don't miss a twilight stroll up the water, when the lights of the city begin to come out and the sunset paints the sky. Insanely romantic.

This is THE PLACE of OPORTO. Mandatory visit. Unesco World Heritage. The view is breath taking, the only problem is that you have to cross the D.Luis Bridge, in order to see it. Don't miss it, you will regret

We spent a long weekend in Porto in October and this was the place where we always went at the end of the day. The area is so nice, so typical that we felt like we were inside a postcard.

Loads of cafes and restaurants. Sometimes a bit of free entertainment too, if it's not raining. Steep walks to and from the centre - good for you.

My European adventures started in Paris and after 2 months of little or no sunshine, I landed in Porto. Here I was peppered with loads of Sunshine, smiling faces and a lovely riverside which wasn't cold. Cais da Ribeira was my first stop and though I came for a walk, I ended up spending over 2 hours, enjoying beer and... More

Enjoying more than two or three nights in Ribeira will wanto to make you live there... The calm presence of the River, the peole, the scenario, work together to give this place a unique personality in the World. Certainly a place to visit more times....
