What you'll do

Discover the hidden treasures of the historic center of Porto, a World Heritage Site, with a fascinating history of more than 2500 years - from Romans to Harry Potter. Together we will have a walk (the most amazing way to discover Porto) to explore Porto city downtown and to snatch its quintessence. We will departure from Santa Catarina street, where we will visit a church with 16 000 tiles. We will visit the traditional market and then will immerse ourselves in the quaint Porto of the XIX and XX centuries, largely influenced by the french architecture. The Cathedral and St. Bento train station will be also on our bucket list. Of course, we will take time to taste a special (and yummy) Portuguese cake :-) Through beautiful & picturesque streets, we will finally heading to the riverside. You'll discover where the author of Harry Potter got inspired when she was in Porto, just before she wrote her first book. Our visit will end with one of the most spectacular view of Porto, surrounded by THE bridge, the wine cellars, the river and the typical boats that cruising by. Gazing at this beautiful city, we'll finally enjoy a delicious local wine or a Portuguese coffee.
