Tour Porto

Details Tour

Porto is one of the oldest tourist destinations in Europe and the richness of its artistic heritage, Port Wine, the vast spaces dedicated to leisure and its cultural life are just some of the reasons that invite you to visit the city.

Along the river and the sea the city unfolds in charming landscapes, inviting terraces and the pleasure of the outdoors, which the green spaces complement. But to discover Porto is to meet many surprises. Keeping its hospitable and conservative character, the city is also contemporary and creative, and the streets, architecture, museums, leisure spaces, terraces and commercial areas, from the most traditional to traditional modern and exclusive.

The Historic Center of Porto has been a Cultural Heritage of Humanity since 1996 and its landscape and the winding layout of its streets give it a unique beauty.

In the city, Port Wine is present in several ways and senses: it can be known and experienced, but never ignored, or forgotten.

Witness to a history made of the crossing of cultures in successive occupations, several times invaded and surrounded, but always Invicta, the city of Porto is a living, dynamic heritage, which regenerates and reinvents itself, always maintaining its character, or was not founded in granite and therefore, unshakable.
