Description

Discover Oporto at your own pace!

Oporto is the second largest city in Portugal. The history of Porto dates back to the 4th century, to the Roman occupation of the Iberian Peninsula, although Celtic and Proto-Celtic ruins have been discovered in several areas.

The charm and character of its old quarters filled with cafes and shopping centers is matched by the Cathedral area, perfect for exploring. The civic center of the city in the Central Baixa quarter with broad avenues lined with banks and outdoor cafes, not forgetting the two-tiered covered daily market.

You will be delighted to discover that shopping in Porto can include stops by national chains for basics, as well as independent shops and boutiques for more unique purchases. Malls and shopping centers such as Shopping Cidade do Porto are the most convenient options, but be sure to check out Oporto's downtown or historic districts to find the most unusual gifts and trinkets, art, antiques, and clothing.

You may wish to relax by the coast at Praia do Ourigo, visit the Praca da Liberdade (literally translated as the Square of Freedom) where you will see the Monumento a D. Pedro IV, or see the many churches including the Igreja de Santa Clare, Igreja dos Grilos or the Ogreja se S. Nicolau.

You will not run short of things to do and see if museums are high up on your must-see list! Take a stroll round the Museu de Arte Sacra, Museu do Vinho do Porto (museum of port wine), Museu Romantico, Museu Nacional Soares dos Reis and many more.

With conveniently located stops around the city, this makes touring Porto both easy and fun.

Explore the Jardim Do Morro (Garden Of The Mount) or take a trip to Castelo do Queijo (Castle of the Cheese), which is a fort located on the coast with a sea-facing wall which is often hit by the waves. The fort was given the name of Castelo do Queijo because it is built in the top of a rock that resembles a piece of cheese.

Also worth a visit is one of Oporto's most characteristic symbols, the Torre dos Clerigos which is a tall bell tower that can be seen from various points of the city.

We used this Hop on Hop off bus during our weekend stay in Porto. Porto is not a big city and all major attractions are withing walking distance, but this bus tour gave us a good orientation of Porto, which was very helpful for the rest of our stay.

One of the routes goes on the other side of the river to Gaia, from where you can get a great view of Porto's old town. The other route will take you up to the Ocean and then back along the river to Porto - the views on the way were amazing! Unfortunately on the day we went it was raining all day, but I imagine on a sunny day it's lovely - the beaches and the restaurants along the coast looked great.

Overall it was very handy bus with many easy to find bus stops and frequent departures. The biggest plus for us was that it took us all the way up to the ocean.
