Not my favourite passtime! I try to spend my time getting to know the place that I’m visiting rather than whiling away my time in the shops, but is there anything in particular that I should consider bringing home from Porto (other than the obvious – Port?).
I’ve heard that the ceramic ware is lovely (although iffy to get home in one piece on a transatlantic flight….) Shoes and other leathergoods have been mentioned. Is there anything remarkable and/or indigenous that I should seek out in Porto? I'd like to say that price is no object, but that wouldn't be entirely true... Let's just say if it's unique, notable or uncommon, I don't mind paying for it accordingly.
Thanks very much for any opinions you are kind enough to share. By honing options down, my shopping is sure to be more efficient!
