TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

Ready, Steady, GO!
Starting from the town hall, we’ll run into the old town to catch the first views from Porto and Gaia (the other side of Douro River).

Crossing the old town we’ll shortly reach the Douro river to enjoy it, appreciate some Street Art, and then the heart of the city, Ribeira, where the city was born and stands the D.Luis iron bridge, designed by Gustav Eifel. Well it’s time to return, and the only way to do it is going up stairs…let’s do it!

At top of the stairs, we’ll find the Cathedral and the narrow streets leading us to the gorgeous S Bento Railway Station witch walls are covered up with the traditional tiles.

Still with enough time to cross Downtown and its shops which are already open and the streets full of people, we are almost at the end of our tour. And that´s it! Back to the starting point, the Town Hall.

It’s time to refill our energy with a well-deserved breakfast, and discover the rest of the city!
