After a great breakfast at your Hotel, our driver/guide will lead you through a gorgeous Full-Day Tour across the city of Porto, also known as the “Invicta City” (the “Unbeaten City”). In fact, it was awarded in the 19th century for the courageous deeds of its inhabitants in the battles, particularly in resistance to the siege of Porto, made by the Absolutist troops. Worldwide famous for its wine, bridges and ancient and contemporary architecture, is also considered the capital of work and culture.
We’ll start with a visit to the city’s contemporary character. Admire the cosmopolitan Boavista Avenue and the area of Foz, the place where the river mergers the sea, providing imposing views over the Atlantic Ocean. On this side of the city we can also find modern museums and impressive monuments that shoulders with the old part of this town.
We’ll proceed this Tour, reaching the historic city center, registered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996, for its historic local treasures and astonishing monuments in a labyrinth of ever-winding, cobbled streets. Its extravagant Baroque churches and stately Neoclassical buildings stand out, as well as its picturesque squares. Admire the Clerigos Tower, the Aliados Avenue, the Sta. Catarina Street, the Bolhão Market, the Cathedral and much more. You will also stroll through its impressive streets and explore the Douro riverbanks. And at the end we will cross the sophisticated D. Luis Bridge and we will visit one of the most famous Wine Cellars, with a pleasant wine tasting. Accommodation in Porto.
