Favourite Stop In Portugal
I love a city with beautiful landscape - and Porto is no exception. Perched above at the mouth of the river Douro, with port wine producers on one side and bustling city on the other, and linked by pedestrian bridges. Walking around is so pleasant. There's a vast array of history, art, food and culture to soak up all within walking distance. 4-5 days is recommended, 3 was probably not enough. Though I didn't do it, a day trip out to the Douro wine region I hear is well worth it.
Insider Tip:Forget Francesinha (though you should probably tick that box) - go for some charcoal chicken with Piri Piri sauce. As an Aussie, we have Portuguese charcoal chicken everywhere. Why it was so hard to find in the motherland I'm not sure, but we did suss out a few options. Would recommend either Restaurante Ze De Braga or Churrasquiera Domingos, on Rua do Rosario across from each other.
