Best things to do in Porto
Forged by some of history's leading architects, Porto's majestically adorned valleys combine Latin charisma, Baroque flair, and a perculiarly British streak as sweet as the region's Port wine. Here's what to see in one of the world's most charismatic cities!
7. Livraria Lello & Irmão
Is this the most beautiful bookstore in the world? It's certainly up there. Pick a book and read it over coffee on the first floor, as JK Rowling did when she lived in the city!

Planning Your Visit
When to go?
Porto is almost permanently warm and sunny between April and September, and it's usually a good gamble to book at either end of that long tourist season if you want to avoid higher prices. However, if you want to see the city at its most festive (and crowded!) arrive for the Saint John Feast in mid-June.
Where to stay?
The city center is actually quite affordable and booking a hotel there will suit most tourists. For those more interested in Porto's relaxed beaches and cafe culture though, the sophisticated district of Foz is the best area in which to stay.
How many days?
You could cover most of Porto's top attractions in 3 days, however, it's well worth booking a couple extra to tour the Douro river and explore some of the scenic towns just a short trip away.
