Winter with Porto.CARD
Winter has arrived and with it the shorter and colder days. However, there are still plenty of hours of light, and with a little luck, sunshine! Enjoy the outdoor cafes/restaurants, walk along the river and visit the latest exhibitions.
Swap your blanket and sofa for the medieval streets of the city centre and discover the tones of Invicta at this time of year. We present you some suggestions of what you must see and do even on the coldest days, always with the usual Porto.CARD discounts.
Cold is a great companion to Port wine, so there's nothing better than tasting one of the different types of wine, in one of the various cellars. Take a guided tour to Ferreira Cellars (30% discount) and let yourself be enthused by the colours and aromas of this famous nectar. If you are more interested in discovering the importance of Port Wine for the region's development, you cannot miss the Douro Extension - Port Wine Museum (free of charge).
Are your kids on winter break and you want to take this time of year to travel with your family? If so, we suggest a visit to SEA LIFE Porto (30% discount). We promise that the little ones will love the sharks, rays, seahorses and many other species that inhabit the aquarium.
Children will also love to learn a little more about the history of the Invicta city, in a less conventional way. Currently, Porto Legends is on display at Furnas da Alfândega (2€ full ticket/double pack 3€ discount), an audiovisual and immersive 360º experience that will awaken all the senses.
Discover the origin of the Football Club, whose history is linked to that of the city, its evolution over the years and its various achievements, with a visit to the Futebol Clube do Porto Museum (10% discount). The museum is an interactive space, award-winning and internationally recognised space where, at the end of your visit, you will have the opportunity to step on the pitch and feel like a true champion.
This season of the year calls for a delicious gastronomic dish in a warm, pleasant and cosy place. At the Restaurant O Caçula (10% discount) you can enjoy its outdoor terrace, even at this time of year, thanks to its heaters and blankets. Spend a pleasant time and try the various specialties of Portuguese cuisine. You can also opt for a divine brunch.
Casa da Música (50% discount on visits and concerts, and 25% discount on guided only tours) is always the perfect place to spend some quality time. Take a guided tour and get to know the details and fun facts of Rem Koolhaas' building. Don't forget to combine the visit with one of the many concerts.
Unveil the history of the famous mode of transport that changed the lives of the people of Porto, with a visit to the Tram Museum (50% discount). Here, you will discover the oldest models of trams and an example of horse-drawn tram, which ran for the first time in Porto in 1872. In the end, take a tram ride on line 18.
Fado is undoubtedly a style of music that will warm your heart in the evening. A concert in a fado house, accompanied by a glass of port wine is our last suggestion. At Casa da Guitarra (10% discount) you will hear the melancholy of the guitars, while at the same time getting to know a little more about the melody that is UNESCO's Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
With our suggestions, you'll save up to 26.40€/per adult (not including the meal at O Caçula or the concert at Casa da Música), while having fun and getting to know the Invicta city even better.
If you still have time to visit other spaces, know that Porto.CARD offers discounts at these and many other locations.
