Porto is Portugal’s second largest city and is located in northwest Portugal. Porto is a very charming medieval city built on the hills overlooking the Duoro river and is world-renowned for its port wine. This coastal city is often compared to Lisbon and regarded as its smaller sibling.
Porto is a beautiful city and has become hugely popular as a city break destination in recent years. Its stunning old town, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site, is built on the banks of the picturesque Douro river. This ‘city of bridges‘ has many excellent bars and restaurants along the riverbank and there are lots of very talented street performers to entertain you with live music as you enjoy your coffee or sip a nice cold beer. The Dom Luis I iron bridge arching over the river dominates Porto’s old town and offers fantastic views over the city. The medieval Sao Francisco church is a must-see attraction. Porto is very compact with many hilly, winding cobblestone streets that are perfect for exploring on foot.
Porto is a perfect destination for a short city getaway. It offers great value for money and enjoys a warm, sunny climate between April and October. To experience the exciting atmosphere, make sure to dine out down by the river where you can relax and people watch both day and night.
With regular direct flights to Porto from Dublin, we always have great deals for holidays to Porto city all year round.
