The weather in early September was wonderful. We probably enjoyed the river front and the sea front areas the most though the trip up the Douro was also wonderful - we took the train both ways and were not disappointed.
Dining is well priced and we enjoyed trying some local dishes and wines. Great atmosphere and getting around on the 48 hour hop on/ hop off buses saved a lot of walking (Porto is hilly) and money.
Porto was amazing - looks very historical. All tourist attractions were within walking distance and we managed to stumble upon a quiet hilltop with an amazing view of the city.
The view by the river where Port Calem is is fabulous too. A nice place to sit in a cafe by the river to relax!
I was amazed how wonderful this city was, having travelled a lot . The people were so friendly. We went on the tour bus, on the river and then the cable car.
The bars and restaurants were great and so inexpensive. Scenery was a lot to take in. A visit to Majestic for lunch is well worth it.
Porto is one of the prettiest cities when the sun is up. The kind of run down and colorful houses along the Douro river just make the perfect picture.
You can just enjoy the area for a very long time.
Very nice old town, is good to walk around to explore small streets, Very interesting...food cost are low compare to other European cities.
.. Good value to travel there!
Porto is slight under presented as a tourist spot but it has lots to offer. The best thing about this city is its view and wine cellars.
There are also numerous restaurants that serve good and authentic Portugese cuisine at an affordable price.
Porto is a wonderful city. The river area and the view of the city built up on the hills around the river is absolutely beautiful.
The people are friendly, the food is delicious, the city is beautiful, and the Port wine is great. It is easy to walk around to most sights, as long as you don't mind some hills! My husband and I really enjoyed our time here and would like to go back some day.
Nice town. Charming. Welcoming people. Nice panoramas. Porto caves to visit (did the one of Calem, which was satisfactory).
You can visit a popular old bookshop in Porto. The staircase is very special but you are not allowed to take photos there.
Don't make an attempt or else you may be shouted by the staff. The coffee shop - Majestic Cafe is located at a popular location. The decorations are fantastic and the food is not really expensive. It's good to have a try.
Lovely city, a lot of culture and history combined with good, cheap drinks and foods served by friendly locals.
Great town with really nice wine cellars (Port wine!!!!!). Just remember, go to the ones with Portuguese name.
We went to Ferreira. For 5 euros you get a nice guided tour and 2 wines to taste - great wines! Really nice people, just don't SPEAK SPANISH!!! they get really upset about it. Try some Portuguese words, the people get really happy about it. Btw, most of them speak a little bit English. Don't expect the best English, but it works for communication.
Nice little town. Can get around easily using metro. People are friendly but majority don't speak English.

you can see everywhere the longest merchant past history of the city
Small.But got lots of things to see. Beautiful, relaxing. The food and the night life is very good!!!
