Porto

4.2

Unvanquished City

Called "Oporto" by many, the city of Porto along the Duoro River lent the country and Port wine their names. Portugal's second-largest metropolis dates back to the 4th century, representing both a rich cultural past and industrial present through its architecture and style. This romantic city is known best for its greatest export, Port wine, and for its old historical center, a World Heritage Site. Stately buildings, medieval structures, and Baroque churches, combined with the river and impressive bridges, give this city its character. When using our Portugal day trip planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.

Where to stay in Porto

Portugal's second city offers a healthy variety and quantity of accessible accommodations. The historical city center on the northern bank of the River Douro teems with hotel options, ranging from budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses, which often have shared rooms, to upscale, luxury hotels housed in larger buildings and packed with amenities. All of these options place you conveniently close to the town's main sights, including churches, historical squares, and more. On top of that, many hotels on the northern bank boast good views from their hilltop vantage points. If you want to save big on cost, it's worth considering a more low-key hostel or small hotel on the less-popular southern bank.
