If you're traveling to Porto, you probably already know that it's a city full of history, delicious gastronomy, and a vibrant hub of art and culture!
Surely, you’ve heard of the famous (and delicious) Port Wine, so why not start this journey through the city by visiting the Port Wine Cellars? They’re located in Cais de Gaia, on the other side of the river, where you can take a tour of the cellars, learn about wine production and, of course, have a tasting!
After that, cross the iconic Dom Luís I Bridge, which connects the city of Vila Nova de Gaia to Porto. Besides being an impressive architectural masterpiece, you’ll find breathtaking views overlooking the city of Porto and the Douro River. (It’s also one of the hottest spots to take incredible selfies to share with your friends and family.)
On the way, you can also admire the beautiful São Bento Railway Station, considered one of the most beautiful train stations in the world. It is renowned for its hand-painted azulejo tiles, that portray many historical moments.

After a well-deserved break, continue strolling through downtown and get ready to witness a breathtaking landscape and enjoy the most beautiful sunset with a privileged view! Make sure your shoes are on tight and head to Jardim das Virtudes. This garden offers a privileged view of the Douro River and the city.
