Overview

Porto magnifico

Porto magnifico

Originally an outpost to the Roman Empire, Porto, Portugal is one of the oldest European centers. Perched overlooking the Douro river estuary, it gives travelers to this city a magnificent point of view. Being the second largest city in Portugal after Lisbon gives travelers a cultural feast in which to partake. And, having its historical center awarded a World heritage site by UNESCO. Well, that just elevates this bustling city to pure magic.

About Portugal

Of course, in the birthplace of Port wine, you should expect you’d have a great time. Things to do in Porto range from visiting museums to shopping at traditional Portuguese markets. Visit Mercado do Bolhão, a favorite of locals and travelers. This colorful, bustling, covered outdoor market is filled with local fruits, vegetables, fish, and meat for sale, as well as some budget- friendly restaurants. And don’t forget a stop by Ribeira, Porto’s vibrant waterfront and part of the UNESCO World Heritage area.
