Oporto, the economic and cultural capital of northern Portugal, is a city of ancient origins. Its mix of architectural styles in Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque and Neo-Classical, combined with an favourable location near the mouth of the River Douro, have made it a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Go sightseeing and taste the famous port wine
Enjoy a panoramic tour of the city and discover the Clérigos tower and the City Hall at the top of Aliados Avenue. From there, we continue to Ribeira quarter. This is a 'must see' for visitors to the city. First because it has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site, but also because it is here that you will find many of the city's most beautiful monuments. Then we take a look at the Palácio da Bolsa (Stock Exchange palace), which is considered to have the city’s most exquisite reception hall, Arabian style. We move on to the Gothic São Francisco Church that contains the most famous gilded carved wood in Portugal. We drive across the river for the 'grand finale' - a visit to one of the famous port wine cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia to taste their port wine.
