Tour “Northern Capital“ (Porto)

Full Day Tour, Tours from Lisbon

One day Porto tour

To understand better Portugal and the Portuguese, it is necessary to visit the “northern capital” – the city of Porto. The road from Lisbon takes 3-3.5 hours, though you will not feel it travelling by our comfortable Mercedes-Benz car, but you can admire the picturesque nature and landscapes of the country.

Initially, the city was built within the fortress walls, that still encircle the city. Furthermore, we will see the Augustinian monastery with a round church and the Stock Exchange building. We will visit the square named after the famous Prince-traveler Henry the Navigator, thanks to who the Era of Great Geographical Discoveries began, we will examine the house where he was born and the Cathedral of Porto, where his parents got married. We will examine the church of the Franciscans, created in Gothic style and decorated with 60 kg of gold. We will surely go to one of the most beautiful railway stations named after St. Benedict, decorated with traditional Portuguese tiles “azulejo.” We will climb to the Clergy tower where, having overcome the 240 steps of the spiral staircase, you will enjoy amazing views of the historic center of Porto and the ancient fishing district of Ribeira. We will pass along the busiest streets of Porto – Avenue of the Allies and shopping street Santa Catarina. Let’s take a look at the Lello bookstore and the Majestic cafe, the interiors of which inspired Joanne Rowling when writing her famous Harry Potter.

In Porto, we will also enjoy the beautiful views of the Douro riverside. If desired, you can ride on a river boat under five bridges and admire the city from the other side.

For lunch, you should definitely try the national dish “Francesinha”, which translates as “Frenchwoman” and originated in Porto.

In conclusion, we will try Winston Churchill’s favorite beverage – Graham’s port wine, as well as learn the history of the wine cellar, reveal the secrets of production and enjoy a private collection of vintage wines belonging to the family of producers.
