Colorful tiled facades, port wine and stunning vistas – that’s probably how I would describe Porto in a few words.
Porto, the second largest city in Portugal is a coastal town in the north of the country. Although smaller than Lisbon, Porto is unique in its own way and deserves a few days on your Portugal itinerary.
