    Porto packs a punch with heaps of culture and sites to see - you will definitely not get bored. I recommend doing a Port Wine tour at Sandeman's for example to learn how the wine is made and even do a taste test.

    Insider Tip:J.K. Rowling lived here for 3 years, so if your a Harry Potter fan make sure you visit Livraria Lello & Irmao.

    Porto is fantastic. It's beautiful, charming, people are nice, they take naps in the middle of the day, which is the time people in London come back from work, the lifestyle is rather relaxed, there is some amazing wines, and people don't go out until very very late.

    Insider Tip:Me and my friend stayed there for four days - it's definitely not long enough. rent bikes, go surfing, take naps.

    Bonita Porto!! Open and relaxed.

    Everything is smooth and breezy in Porto. From arriving to the airport everything went easy. It is very easy to get the local experience. Everyone just respected you there were no aggressive tourist tactics. We had no guidebook and just walked around and we discovered it all by ourselves. Beautiful views, beautiful houses, in some side streets you could feel like you are in a village. Wash hanging everywhere and old ladies and gentleman having a sneak peek out the window. I love Porto!!

    Insider Tip:Spend time just walking around from main to side streets. It really is about the atmosphere and being outside the whole day with some Batido (smoothies) or beer breaks of course. We found a beautiful view just getting into side streets. You really don't need to stress of missing out in Porto because just being smooth and breezy is what Porto is about.
