What to do in Porto in 3 days
If you want to book a holiday accommodation in Porto, you should look for an apartment as centrally located as possible. In this sense, the Ribeira neighborhood is an excellent choice. It is located on the banks of the Douro River and is full of colorful houses that look like something out of a postcard. Here you will also find the Don Luis I Bridge, a must-see. The best alternative is Baixa, an area that houses most of the sights of the city. If you decide to stay here, it is advisable to spend the first day of your trip exploring Praça da Liberdade, the Clérigos Tower and Porto Cathedral. And, if you still have some time left, don't forget to visit the Lello bookstore and finish by relaxing at the Café Majestic.
For your part, the second day of the trip can be dedicated to travel from your Porto vacation apartment to some of the best surrounding beaches. For example, you can use public transport or hire a car to take you from your accommodation in central Porto to Foz do Douro. This neighboring town is home to some of the most interesting in the region. But if you are looking for something quieter, you should also visit Vila Nova de Gaia or Matosinhos. These are enclaves where it is also a good idea to rent an apartment as holiday accommodation and then get ready to visit the main local monuments.
The third day you stay in an accommodation in Porto could be dedicated to a tour of the main wineries in Porto. The most prominent are located on the banks of the Douro River in front of the city. The area is known as Gaia and its most famous meeting point is Arribes del Duero, very close to the Spanish border. If time is short, spend the morning visiting the Pinto Ramos Winery, 3 miles from the center, and the afternoon visiting the Porto Cruz Winery, 4 miles away. Next to the latter there is a magnificent viewpoint from which to contemplate the sunset with great delight.
