Oporto is famous for its Porto wine . Visit one of Oporto's most traditional establishments, for a tour and tasting. Oporto is so picturesque: with the old wine boats plying the river in front of you, and traditional port lodges behind, the medieval old-town clinging to the opposite bank and the skyline punctured by the Cathedral and numerous churches .

10 minutes the faboulous bookshop Livraria Lello , the totally unique spectacle of an amazing interior architecture . the Harry Potter’s library in Hogwarts. In fact, J.K Rowling lived in Porto teaching English in the early 1990s .

The UNESCO protected old-town, a veritable tangle of 14th century lanes tumbles to the river and a beautifully restored waterfront. Tiny antiquated shops are everywhere, and, straddling the river itself, are six stunningly intricate bridges, one of which was designed by Gustav Eiffel.

Tiny antiquated shops are everywhere. Straddling the river itself are six stunningly intricate bridges, one of which was designed by Gustav Eiffel. Take the Eiffel designed bridge (D. Luis bridge) across the Douro to Gaia (5 minutes walk) and visit the Port Houses of Ferreira, Sandemans, Croft and Barros amongst others where you can take a guided trip and sample the delights of Portugal's oldest export.
