You've read about the tourist attractions in Porto and highlighted the ones you really want to visit, whether downtown, the Ribeira or strolls along the river. And you even know that the traditional food is francesinha. Speaking of which, here is something you should also know: every local will recommend you a different location, why? It all hangs on your preferences, but you'll surely love tasting our specialty! You also know that we have Casa da Música, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Serralves and the wonderful Foz. Still looking for something else? Then stay with us for a few more minutes.

The city of Porto is well known for its architecture, so much so that the entire itinerary is dedicated to it. Within this theme, we point out Casa de Chá, by the Portuguese architect Siza Vieira, a place that is now a Michelin star restaurant. For nature walks and lookouts, explore the hidden gardens of Palácio de Cristal. We also suggest a train ride with views over the Douro river, shopping at a traditional grocery shop or tasting the grilled fish in Matosinhos.
