Portugal - Porto for a few days/ Day Trips ro not

Hello All,

We have 3 full days (4 nights) in Porto this summer that I can use some help with. My family loves to hike and we love natural beauty.

• Is it feasible to see the Rio Douro Valley in a day trip from Porto?

• If I take a train or boat up the Rio Douro Valley, are there places to get off that I should not miss? I am not sure what I should do beside take in the beauty.

• Is it feasible to hike in the Parque Nacional da Peneda-Geres as a day trip in Porto?

That leaves me one full day to see Porto.

• Will I need a car up there or can I skip it and take public transportation?

• Do many people stay in the Rio Douro Valley and/or near or in the Parque Nacional da Peneda-Geres? Or does it make sense to use Porto as a “base camp” for these two day trips?

• Maybe there are places I can stay near the Parque Nacional da Peneda-Geres. Any suggestions on this?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated
