Porto was always on my list of the must visit places in Portugal. Before looking at a map I actually thought Porto was where Lisbon is and visa versa for no particular reason except I had never looked closely at a map of Portugal. This just goes to show you how much I actually know about geography. The city is incredibly hilly and you better be prepared to walk a lot to get anywhere but so worth it!

The Douro River flows along the coast of the city and eventually leads to the beach. There are these lovely little boat tours that tell you all about the history of the 6 bridges in Porto which they are very proud of. I was a little more focused on the view rather than listening to the history. It is a great way to see the city from a birds eye view.

I spent most of my time walking around and just exploring the city including an entire day of port tasting which you can read about here.

Porto is an absolutely gorgeous town with spectacular and an amazing history. Sadly, this was the end of my time in Portugal but I fully intend to come back for a longer visit.
