What can I expect in Porto?
Built on the hills rising from the Douro river that winds through the centre, Porto’s brightly painted houses are picture-postcard pretty. The historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Centre – the local architecture blends medieval and modern to stunning effect, and the city is bursting with culture and packed with places to eat and drink.
Situated between sea and mountains, foodies can expect a mix of surf and turf. There are also plenty of thick soups and stews to sink into. You can’t leave without trying Francesinha, a popular open sandwich that layers linguiça (a garlicky smoked sausage) with roast steak or pork, ham, melted cheese and a rich, spicy tomato sauce made with beer.

Why should I visit Porto?
The unique sweet flavour of world-famous Port wine has been putting Porto in the spotlight for wine lovers for many years. But this city is much more than good wine. Much of old Porto can be described with a pronounced 18th-century accent. Extravagant Baroque churches and stately Neoclassical buildings interrupt the skyline, their most valuable contents displayed in world-class museums set in picturesque squares. One of the city’s main attractions is Livraria Lello, one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world, which became famous as one of JK Rowling’s favourite haunts when she lived in Porto and inspired her Harry Potter novels.
If you are visiting in June, try to be in Porto on 23rd for the São João Festival. It’s probably one of the largest, craziest street parties in Europe, paying tribute to Saint John the Baptist.
