Accomodation and Parking in Porto

We are looking to stay in Porto for three nights in late August. We are traveling about Portugal in a rental car and parking is definitely a consideration as we will keep the rental throughout. Does anyone know what the parking is like in and around the Ribeira?

Is it better to stay out of the centre? Any help would be very much appreciated.

There are underground paying parkings in downtown, but the city also has good public transports options so there's no problem to stay "outside" in an hotel with parking. visitporto.travel/Visitar/…PortoCard.aspx

We have stayed twice at the PortoTrindade, which is a 15/20 min. downhill walk to the Ribeira. They have a special offer for their customers who can park their car in a nearby (300 m) underground parking. The hours between 18 :15 and 9:15 are paid by the hotel. Hourly tariff during the day is (only) 1.50 euro.

Great tip! I'm also researching a Portugal trip with rental car so this might come in handy:)

I just stayed at this apartment in the Ribeira. Parking was also a big concern for us when we were considering it. The owner just told us not to worry and they would help us to find a free parking. I went with their words and sure they showed us a couple of places to park. Also you can drive into the Ribeira area after 7pm. There is an alley right next to the apartment where you can park and I think very few people know about it. I was there last week, so I don't know if the situation will be the same in the summer. The apartment has a view to die for and we were glad that we took the risk. You can read my review here: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/627273
