Trip Info

In this private tour toward Northern Portugal, we can pause in Coimbra for a comfort stop and quick sightseeing. We begin our tour with a stop in the south bank of the river, at the top of a hill, near Serra do Pilar Monastery, for a nice view of Porto. Free time for lunch near Douro river, to taste the well-known Porto cuisine (like bacalhau (codfish), ‘arroz fe cabrito’ (goat and rice dish), ‘arroz de cabiela’ (game stock and rice) and the historical city favourite: tripe (‘a moda do Porto’)). Other options are of course available for the tentative traveler…

Porto, the country’s second largest city and one of Europe’s most charismatic cities, has carefully preserved its architectural treasures. This is the city that created and named Port Wine and blossomed into modern-day Portugal, famed for its riverside hills, medieval alleys, Parisian-style plazas, historic monuments and churches.
Many leading tourist attractions and shops in Porto are to be found off the Avenida dos Aliados and the Rua Santa Catarina.
This wide avenue (dos Aliados) is one of the central points of Porto. The central boulevard is surrounded by impressive neoclassical buildings. At the head of the avenue is the Camara Municipal (Town Hall) and at its southern end is the Praca da Liberdade. Streets leading off the Avenue offer some of Porto’s main shopping streets.

Beyond stopping by the shopping areas, enjoy seeing the Palacio da Bolsa (Stock Exchange) which is a fine example of the 19th century architecture with its famous Arabic Room featuring laminate gold decorations.
See the Dom Luis bridge dating back to the 19th century. See all this, and more! Your guide will show you the way.
