    City With Character

    Porto is a small city with tons of character, much more than Lisbon. Plenty of old buildings that are absolutely beautiful. The people are very friendly as well. There's a great art scene and a lot to do. I only had 2 days here and it wasn't enough.

    Great city you can see in a day or two

    Beautiful city, great to taste local Port wines and sit along the river taking in the views, but it's not too big and you won't need to spend much time here. I saw everything in a day and a half.

    Insider Tip:Go to a local port wine cellar and do a tour and tasting for around 5 euros.
