In the morning we leave for Porto. It’s a journey of about 300km and so we have a break on the way for a coffee and to stretch our legs. This is the best way to visit one of Portugal’s most beautiful cities, taste Porto’s wine and return to Lisbon all in one day!
Porto is Portugal’s second largest city. It is very different to Lisbon but just as full of character and charms and definitely an unmissable spot when you’re in Portugal!
During the day you will have the chance to get to know the main spots in this fantastic city, having an excellent day visiting places that are very different to those that you’ll find in Lisbon. You can enjoy yourself and let yourself get lost in the city’s historical centre, wander down the Avendia dos Aliados and visit the Market of Bolhão or the typical neighbourhood of Ribeira.
You will have plenty of reasons to want to revisit the city… but at the end of the day we have to return to Lisbon, so just sit back and relax… we will take you back to your hotel.

Private excursion to the city of Porto, leaving from Lisbon, Sintra, Cascais or Estoril.
Porto is the city from which Portugal takes its name – from very early on (c.200 BC), when it was named Portus Cale, later becoming the capital of the County of Portucalense, from which Portugal was formed.
Porto is world renowned for its wine, bridges and contemporary and historic architecture, for its historical centre, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and for the quality of its restaurants and fantastic gastronomy!
Here you can visit unique sights such as the Old Cathedral of Porto, a roman monument from the 7th century, the Palácio da Bolsa (Stock Exchange Palace), a palace from the 14th century decorated with extraordinary paintings and sculptures, the church of Sao Franciso, the most important gothic building in Porto and, of course, the no less important Clerigos Church and Clerigos Tower, which are the most famous points of interests in Porto, built in the 18th century by Nicolau Nasoni.
As well as these places, we also recommend a visit to the famous Avenida dos Aliados and the Markets of Bolhão and Ribeira. During the day, you will be able to try one of Porto’s wines, truly the nectar of the gods, or some of the other traditional sweet specialties of the region.
