1 – Porto is known for its mysterious fog, but the local’s warmth will make everything else shine!
Book a historical walking tour with us!
2 – The bridge Luís I was built in 1886 to connect both cities Porto and Gaia and was constructed by Gustave Eiffel, along with his partner Théophile Seyrig. We could say Eiffel was training for the Eiffel Tour (1889), in Paris. 🙂
Check all of this for yourself at the historical walking tour.
3 – São Bento Station is considered one of the most beautiful architectural landmarks of the world.
You can know it by doing a historical walking tour.
4 – In June, the city is awake all night to celebrate St. John, eating sardines and drinking wine!
Have fun too in the night tour!
5 – Porto is full of new places to eat and drink! You can dance and have fun pretty much everywhere!
Or you can book a food tour with us and taste the famous food of Porto.
6 – Did you know Lello bookstore was the place J.K. Rowling first started writing Harry Potter in? She was inspired by such beautiful place!
Make sure you don’t miss a thing and try the cultural walking tour.
7 – Port Wine is made in the Douro region (classified in 2001 as an Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO) and is a strong landmark in the city.
Get to know all about it (and, most importantly, taste it) doing the wine tour with us.
8 – There’s a hidden story in almost every street and every corner.
These stories are told in the medieval walking tour.
9 – Douro river (that we could almost translate as “made of gold”) gives you a phenomenal view during the night with all the lights reflected in the water. This is one thing you shouldn’t miss when visiting Porto.
Again, check the historical walking tour.
10 – There’s a huge garden in the middle of the city, with a spectacular view. It is called Palácio de Cristal (Crystal Palace) and is a place full of romantic paths. You can spot many peacocks (such wonderful creatures) and it is a place you will not forget anytime soon.
