  • Visit the São Bento railway station and Porto's Cathedral

Full description
Meet at the city hall in Avenida dos Aliados, the location of excellence, where the people of Porto gather to celebrate special times. Admire the famous Lello Bookshop with its magnificent staircase linking it to the upper floor. The architecture of this bookshop inspired the Hogwarts staircase in J. K. Rowling's book series Harry Potter. In the same area, see the Clérigos Tower with a panoramic view over the city and the Douro River, which makes the 240 steps climb worth the effort.

Your local guide will lead you through the historical city center and introduce you to its highlights. Get to know the history of the famous monuments like the S. Bento Railway Station, which has twenty thousand tiles painted by hand illustrating the events of Portuguese history. Explore the commercial area of Santa Catarina, Majestic Café, and Bolhão Market. 

Finally, find the river essence as you reach Ribeira, with the typical Rabelo boats and the well-known port wine cellars. Above the river, find the unique D. Luis Bridge, at 395 meters long and 8 meters wide. Its arch is considered the biggest iron arch. Cross the bridge and see Vila Nova de Gaia where all the cellars are. On this tour, visit one of the traditional ones and taste the wonderful and world-famous Porto wine.
