After being collected from your Porto accommodation, you will travel with your guide to the House of Music, which was inaugurated in 2005.

The Church of San Francisco was built in the 12th century, and was initially of Romanesque architecture before being transformed into Gothic style, then later into that of Baroque. The Cathedral of Oporto (or Porto Cathedral) is a church with a Roman-Gothic structure which began being built in the 12th century, later receiving several renovations in the 17th and 18th centuries.

Porto card is fantastic to have. There are no issues whatsoever with acceptance, all the attractions that I visited instantly recognized the card in my hand. I got great value from holding this card and will purchase it again the next time I visit Porto. Note that at least at the pickup kiosk in the airport, they require you to purchase the card online, they do not sell it at the kiosk. So order ahead to save yourself time upon arrival.

Porto card taken for 3 days. It served us well for public transport even though we walked a lot. And we took advantage of discounts: museums or restaurants.

כרטיס מצויין שמאפשר גישה והנחו בהמון מקומות כולל נסיעה בתחבורה הציבורית ברחבי העיר מאוד מומלץ בפורטו בליסבון ובערים אירופאיות אחרות

Very practical to move around the city by metro and bus.

Perfect for easy and unlimited transport in Porto.
