Portal to Porto
Porto has a lot to offer; wine tasting, winery tours, river boat tours, old churches, and rocky beaches. The city is a bit like an old run down fishing city. The buildings are somewhat falling apart and have a faint smell of mold but that adds to the old charm. Many of the building faces are covered in old beautiful tiles and the iron window coverings can be very ornate creating a style unique to Porto. Cafes and Pasteis shops can be found everywhere and there is no shortage of ham sandwiches.
Insider Tip:Most restaurants especially by the water fronts serve fried cod or sardines or fried sausages, this is typical to Porto food. It is difficult to find other types of Portuguese foods. Check out the beaches not just the river. There are cafes and restaurants along the coast of the beaches in the north (idk about the south) and they provide a great spot for sunset! Praia da Luz is the beach name where I sat. Another piece of advise.. give yourself plenty of time to get to and from the airport. Bring umbrella!!
