We give you suggestions to give unique experiences in the Invicta city and make your partner smile. At the moment, you cannot enjoy these experiences, but why not start planning the next surprise for your loved one? Porto will be here to welcome you, when all is well.
For wine lovers
Are you that couple who enjoy a good bottle of wine, but also enjoy listening to the experience and history behind each wine varietal by an expert in the field? In Porto you can enjoy both. The Invicta city's connection to wine goes back a few centuries and, as such, you can find in Porto several points of interest that honour Wine, especially the authentic and unique Port Wine.
We suggest that you offer a visit for two to the Museu da Cidade - Port Wine Museum (Extensão do Douro) and, after the visit, take the opportunity to stroll through the streets of Porto to Garrafeira do Carmo, where you will find a huge variety of the best that the wine of Porto and the North of Portugal region has to offer.
If you like to learn even more about wine, here is our suggestion, try the Wine Masterclass at The Yeatman, where you are invited to travel through the different Portuguese wine regions, with a selection of wines specially selected for you.
You can also choose to offer a unique wine moment at the Wine Cellar at the Restaurante Porto Novo. Here we invite you to enjoy a dinner where the wines are the protagonists, in a unique wine atmosphere, in private, inside the cellar.
For chocolate fanatics
Cannot resist a delicious piece of chocolate?
There is a novelty in the world of chocolate in Porto and it is in the new cultural centre opened in 2020: WOW - World of Wine.
Chocolate goes perfectly well with wine and, as such, there is a museum dedicated to this delicacy in the World of Wine. We suggest you embark on an immersive experience from the world of cocoa to the world of chocolate at WOW - The Chocolate Story (chocolate museum). While you are learning the history of this delicacy, put your hands to work at the Chocolate Factory where you can roast and grind the cocoa and make and conche the chocolate, until it takes shape and, finally, to taste. At the end of the trip, nothing better than offering a tablet of the brand VinteVinte - a brand manufactured by WOW - to your loved one to sweeten, even more, the taste buds.
