PortoOne of Europe's oldest cities and the home of port wine.
Porto is one of the oldest European cities, founded by the Celts in the 4th century BC. It’s also one of the most beautiful, with a dramatic location on the Douro River estuary, flanked by hillsides covered in terraced vineyards. The city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, crammed with grandiose Baroque and Romanesque buildings. The Ribeira district, on the banks of the river, is a hive of activity, with narrow streets winding down to the water’s edge. There’s a lively nightlife, with plenty of bars and restaurants, and Porto is also a great place to buy wine, with many local producers.
