Setting out to discover Oporto means bumping into surprise after surprise!

Oporto is one of Europe's most interesting tourist destinations. Its monumental and artistic heritage, the open-air leisure spaces, cultural and night life and the Port Wine are just some of the reasons why you should visit this city.

Oporto has a special charm for anyone visiting the city for the first time. It's a simultaneously modern and authentic city waiting to be discovered.

The city unfolds along the Douro river bank and the Atlantic ocean, to reveal charming scenarios, inviting terraces and all the outdoors pleasures, framed by its green spaces.

While maintaining the authentic and welcoming nature, Oporto is, at the same time, contemporary and creative. You can notice this in its streets, design shops, architecture and monuments, museums, leisure spaces and terraces.

At night, Oporto turns into a completely different city, with entertainment and leisure that fits to all tastes and fills the streets with energy and cheerfulness

Oporto is also known to be the main gateway to the North of Portugal and three other World Heritage Sites, Guimarães, Foz Côa and the Douro Valley. From being in a World Heritage city center, to being at the seaside or on a wine tasting trip up the Douro valley, or even hiking through the National Park or exploring an important religious sites, such as Fátima or Santiago de Compostela, there is whole world of experiences waiting for you!
