Relax in lovely parks; stroll the riverfront on both sides (Porto and Gaia); view the bridges from as many angles as possible!

The walk to the nearest metro is about 5-10 mins (depending on whether you are dragging cases) and the metro service is pretty efficient. There is a shopping centre next door with a food court.
