Porto for lovers

A city by the river, Porto has a thousand and one nooks inviting you to date while you discover local history and culture. Walk along the streets of the historical centre and downtown and feel the pulse of one of the oldest cities in the country.

Between visits to churches, representing with their beauty the faith of the northern people, and to monuments evocative of the most illustrious characters of Portuguese history, enjoy the romantic and urban cafés in this noble area of the city. In one of the wine bars in the historical centre, make a toast with a Port wine glass or a glass of wine, mature red or white, DOC from Douro.

After visiting Casa do Infante, the church of São Francisco, Palácio da Bolsa, the famous Rua Ferreira Borges and the well preserved Rua da Ribeira and Rua de Miragaia, take the tram to the Foz, where the old Douro kisses the Atlantic.

In the beach area, go to Serralves, next to Avenida da Boavista. The Contemporary Art Museum, designed by Siza Vieira, and the Casa in Art Déco style, are remarkable spaces, it’s true, but we have a different suggestion. Have a picnic in the park, one of the largest green areas in Porto, where we emphasize the gardens of Palácio de Cristal. Renew your fidelity vows next to the water features of the gardens Jacques Gréber designed for Casa de Serralves.
