Here are great things to do in Porto in three days. Porto is the second largest city in Portugal. It’s a coastal city in the northwest known for its port wine production and beautiful bridges.
Have A Drink (And/Or Stay At The Hotel) In The Square By The Douro River
We stayed at the Hotel Pestana Vintage in the historic district of Ribeira. The Pestana Vintage Porto was built by combining 18 buildings named by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
You can order a drink on their patio with this view.
We were upgraded to this riverview room. See the port-tasting shops across the river.
São Bento Train Station Tiled Murals
On the way to a delicious lunch at Tapabento to the left of the train station (don’t miss it), we stopped to admire the station’s murals.
Climb The Ancient Narrow Streets To Visit The Porto Cathedral
The Porto Cathedral is a hilltop fortress with beautiful architecture. Getting there on foot and touring the cathedral was one of the highlights of our trip.
Walk Across the Ponte de Dom Luís I
Here is a view from the bridge.
To Do In Porto: Enjoy A Port Tasting On The River
Once you are on the other side of the river, stop in for a taste at one of the port tasting rooms. We went to Ramos Pinto to savor a flight of old port with chocolates.
Have Lunch (And/Or Stay) At the Six Senses Resort
This is a beautiful resort that our driver took us to…but call ahead for lunch as during certain times only hotel guests can eat there.
Hire A Guide To Take You To The Wine Country
The guide that we hired from Get Your Guide took us on a lovely ride through the winding hills to a small tasting room with amazing views.
