Where to stay in Vila Nova de Gaia

Located just across the river from Porto's Old Town, Vila Nova de Gaia boasts a distinctive identity of its own.You can take advantage of the area's trendy riverfront district and its world-famous Port wine cellars by staying in one of the neighborhoods just south of the bridges to Old Town Porto. This puts you within easy walking distance of the wine cellars, while leaving you in close proximity to historical sites across the river by foot, bus, or taxi. Farther from the river are several international chain hotels offering comfortable rooms with high standards of cleanliness. You'll also find locally run inns and bed and breakfasts in the heart of the city's more residential neighborhoods of Cravelos and Mafamude.

  • My guide book stated that guided tours were available but on arriving there appeared to be no option for entering the building. The views from the terrace however are probably the best in the city.  more »

  • Best sunset and night view here. I visit here everyday during my stay in Porto.
  • Go in the late afternoon so you can enjoy the outstanding view of the sunset. You can go by car and park up there or by cablecar.
  • The view of the river and Ribeira is amazing. Try to visit during the sundown. It's unforgettable!
  • Must visit. Just be careful, on Monday it's closed
  • Spectacular location with a sublime view to Porto as to Gaia.
