Whether you're after a grand adventure or simply a relaxing day trip, sightseeing in Porto, Portugal can be an unforgettable experience.
You should start with port wine, of course. The drink that put an entire country on the map, port wine is Porto's #1 export and tourist draw. Take a guided tour through the historical port cellars or enjoy a glass yourself at Porto's luxury hotels.
Ready to shop? Try the ever-popular, ever-growing Balhao Market. Spanning a two-tiered building, it's the premiere place to find everything from fresh produce to uniquely Portuguese cultural artifacts.
Maybe you're less excited with tourism and more interested in Portuguese history. Bairro da Se, the cultural heart of the city, is dotted with monuments, landmarks, and medieval churches at every step.
Feeling overwhelmed? Don't know where to start? Don't worry. You can see everything in Porto with the hop-on hop-off double decker bus. Enjoy a ride through everything from sprawling city markets to the spectacular Cathedral da Se, and like the name suggests, hop off anywhere it looks interesting!
To really make the most of your trip, consider taking a tour or buying a helpful guide. Porto is a place of excitement and intrigue, and you wouldn't want to miss a thing.
