"Bem vindo ao Porto", the second biggest city in Portugal! Besides the beautiful old town with its famous historical buildings, we recommend any visitor to pace the colourful markets and the numerous shopping facilities. Don’t forget to go for a walk along the golden beaches of the Douro river – and afterwards have a nice aperitive with an excellent glass of Porto wine! Tawny, Ruby or Vintage, the Porto wine is produced in the many beautiful wineries situated on the Douro valley sunny slopes.
Porto's old town belongs to the UNESCO-World Cultural Heritage list. Among many sightseeings, you will want to check out the central station Sao Bento, the Cathedral and the walk to the Ribeira neighborhood. Another option is to book a cruise on a traditional boat and to navigate the Douro river to admire the famous 6 bridges that link the city's bank, among which the bridge Dom Luis, built by a disciple of Gustave Eiffel.
Porto has a lot more to offer, not only on the historical aspect. The nocturnal flair of the old town should not be missed out, and you will find a bar to your liking in the central district, with festive atmosphere in the streets until late at night. End up the evening in one of the beautiful traditional Portuguese restaurants, and enjoy local specialties of sea fruits and wines.
Porto welcomes you with open arms six times a week for only €129 incl. taxes* return. At this price, the Portuguese sun is a tempting reason to get away from it all. Go on and give yourself a treat! Besides, the Friday morning 10.55 flight from Luxembourg and the return 19.25 Sunday evening flight from Porto suit travelers going on a long weekend.
