Walk down the boardwalk at Cais da Ribeira, a popular historic district packed with cultural offerings. This area is home to Ribeira Wharf and Riveira Square--one of the city's oldest squares, built in 1389.

    Who is the port and not the Cais da Ribeira do not met the port. Is where all boat trips. Place to walk, eat, enjoy the view, anyway, has to go.

    One of the most picturesque spots of the port. Must-see, you can supplement with a boat trip on the River Douro.

    The setting is charming, with movement of tourists. In addition to the charming Ribeira square-facing the Douro River and the small streets with cobblestone pavement, there visitors will find a host of restaurants, bars and cafés.

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.
