    Porto- Magic

    I found the city to be magical. It has beautiful architecture and rich history and of course if you like to drink no shortage of wine.

    Insider Tip:Take a tuk tuk tour combined with an hour long duoro cruise it doesn't cost much and is a great jumping off point to know what you want to see and do in the city.

    Porto - relax and wine

    Porto has really nice city centre and when you get outside the main touristic zones, you can feel the Portugese atmosphere everywhere. It is possible to walk almost everywhere, maybe except for beach. But transportation costs are slightly higher than in Lisbon. I really appreciate the low or none entry fee for most of tourist attractions. If I ever go back to Portugal, I will come to Porto again.

    Insider Tip:Take a time to visit Porto's beaches. Taste Francesinha and some pasteries, eg.g from Bolhao market. And don't forget to taste some wine from Porto, maybe in connection with visiting some of local wine cellars (e.g. Calém).

    Amazing city

    Porto is ana amazing city. The riviera part is well-protected, a bit turistic but still nice. They have a unique train station. I was in Porto in Feb and the wheather was really warm. Port wine is worth to try. The cyrstal palace has a great view and nice place to spend your evening. Also i really enjoyed to walk all the way next to the Atlantic ocean. I reccomend you to take free walking tours.
