Porto - City and Wine

Language English, Portuguese
Price 270,00 EUR for excursion
Capacity Group of up to 10 people
Duration 7 hours

Considered Best European destination in 2102 and 2014, from across the Rio Douro at sunset, romantic Porto, the country’s second-largest city, looks like a pop-up town. A colourful tumbledown dream with medieval relics, soaring bell towers, extravagant baroque churches and stately beaux-arts buildings piled on top of one another, illuminated by streaming shafts of sun. If you squint you might be able to make out the open windows, the narrow lanes and staircases zigzagging to nowhere.

This driving tour begins with a breathtaking drive along the ocean, passing the Cheese Castle (Castelo de Queijo), the trendy Foz district, the Arrábida Bridge (Ponte da Arrábida) arriving to the centre where you will visit the Historic Centre, Sé Cathedral, Bolhão Market, Santa Catarina shopping street, Clérigos Church and Tower, Lello Bookshop, São Bento Train Station, Stock Exchange Palace finishing at the riverside Ribeira Square where you will enjoy a traditional Portuguese lunch in one of the most beautiful parts of the city.

After lunch, you will traverse the symbolic Douro River on the Eiffel inspired Dom Luis Bridge to Vila Nova de Gaia, where you will visit a famous port wine cellar for a tour and tasting, learning all about the production, harvesting and transporting of this unique drink. You will have time to purchase some bottles if desired.
