Porto, Portugal

After a comfortable flight over long vineyards, you land in Porto: one of Europe’s oldest cities. Relax and enjoy in this historic Portuguese pearl.

A maze of narrow streets housing centuries old buildings, Baroque churches and colourful crowded houses from where the occasional clock tower arises. This is Porto. This wonderful city is beautifully located on the Douro River in Portugal. It is then not surprising that you have the best view of the city from the Douro.

Fly to Porto with its long history

The centre of Porto has the most spectacular sights that justifiably are on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. One example is the old district of Ribeira, which means river bank. Here you can get to know the real Porto and its tripeiros, as the city’s inhabitants are called. Other must dos on the list include a visit to the Sé Cathedral and a walk across the Dom Luis I bridge during your citytrip to Porto. The view across the city from this bridge is spectacular, especially at sundown. Book your ticket to Porto and enjoy the Mediterranean Portugal with a glass of port. We’ve put together a list of attractions and sights in Porto just for you.
