Porto is an amazing city to visit. One piece of advice – actually stay in Porto and don’t try and do it in a day like Jess and I. Granted we still had a wonderful and memorable visit but it definitely would have been great to stay there for a night, or two. Porto is also the 2nd largest city in Portugal after Lisbon so boasts quite a few things to do. Not to mention you could always just go from one Port Cave to the next…One’s sight-seeing in Porto starts in the train station. Some of the most impressive tile work I have ever seen!
Riverfront along the Douro River (also where I found a bracelet on the ground!)
Sandeman’s is one of the most known Port Caves in Porto
All done. I ended up drinking all of mine and then some of Jess’s reds since those make her sick. Needless to say that much wine led to some interesting decisions of mine
Paying homage to my saint!
While Jess was getting us through the city, I was busy doing this…
Lello & Irmao Bookstore – Founded in 1906 (pictures were forbidden in here too) Don’t take me on a wine/chocolate tasting
Look at those hills!
We went into a bakery
And then another one…
and a third one…
and we ate some of these too
A day spent in Porto was great, but more time would have definitely been better (:
Cheers from Porto (in Spirit)
