Full description
On this guided walking tour of Porto, you’ll learn all about the Roman occupation and the formation of the small medieval village that was once the foundation of the city. You’ll see all the city’s most beautiful landscapes and soak up some authentic Porto culture, traversing the beautiful historic centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

You’ll start your tour at the Sé hill, where you can admire this charming historical neighborhood at your leisure. Your route will then lead you down various old streets that were once important thoroughfares for trafficking people and goods in medieval times. In Ribeira and Infante Square, you’ll learn more about the city's connection to the international trade of Port wine and how it became the stage of an important revolution in the early nineteenth century. You’ll also hear how the city survived the French invasions and the Civil War, and learn about the struggles of the Contemporary Era for the implantation of the Republic in Portugal.

Along the way, you’ll pass by a range of iconic buildings, including the Church of São Francisco, Palácio da Bolsa, and the Ferreira Borges Market.
