We fell in love with Porto and Porto will fall in love with us. A new star has been born in the city of Porto, designed to fulfil the desires and meet the needs of all those who like to spend their time doing what’s really important.
We offer you the magic of the city of Porto with its bridges and cultural dynamic, its fast-paced trade, unique architecture, legendary cuisine, excellent wines and lively night-life. Visit Porto and feel yourself growing inside. Savour the ancient and the modern, accompanied by a glass of one of the world’s most renowned wines. This ancient city actually gave its name to Port wine and to Portugal itself. Its history as a commercial port has formed much of the city’s heritage, its bourgeois and passionate hustle and bustle, which leaves its mark on everything. Porto, which is also classified as a world heritage site, is nestled along the banks of the river, which lovingly winds it way through the city…
Maybe this is why it captures the heart of everyone who can see it around every corner. The city of Porto is one of Europe’s oldest tourist destinations.
Porto combines the charm of the past (a cliché which is nevertheless true) with the freshness of the present. From the contemporary Casa da Música to the 12th Century Cathedral, the different eras come together in harmony on the streets of Porto. The city is bursting with colourful streets and historical sites. There is something to see around every corner. Porto is increasingly becoming a shopping mecca, in contrast with the historical beauty spread all over the city and the renowned mythical Port wine cellars, over a hundred years old, just across the river.
Whenever we plan a trip to a city, we try to find out what the locals do, as it’s harder to experience everything a city has to offer unless we have a friend to show us the best places, to share the city’s secrets, to introduce us to the most authentic urban environment and to enable us to savour the sounds and smells, all from the perspective of someone for whom it is home.
