Trip Report Porto - History, Culinary, Art and Wine Travel Report

Jump to last reply

An ultimate guide of visiting the second-largest city in Portugal in a day!

I decided that I had to go and see Porto when I saw a picture of an iron bridge straddling across the river from the cliffs with colorful houses built on both sides. The picturesque cityscape was unique to me – and I wondered “Where is it?”

Unlike many Europe cities, Porto is hilly. Although it doesn’t have a spectacular harbor view from the peak like Hong Kong, it has a double-deck iron bridges that span the Duoro River. Standing on the hundred-year-old Dom Luis I bridge I could view seagulls soaring freely over the body of water, and layers and layers of houses making a concerted effort to Porto's spectacular skyline.

Porto (or called Oporto) is the second-largest city in Portugal, and the city has a great inventory of iconic features for a day trip of Portuguese experience: Search for Azulejos. Enjoy lunch by the Douro and Luis I iron bridge, Try Port Wine, and See Lello & Irmao bookstore and Majestic Café...
