Explore the capital of northern Portugal on our Porto City Break.

Your week begins with a walking tour of the city’s intertwining medieval streets, its historic Manueline architecture and bustling 21st century plazas. The iconic Ponte Luiz I bridge connects Porto with its twin city Vila Nova de Gaia, whose famous port houses line the southern bank of the grand Douro River.

You’ll have a chance to sample the three main styles of Port Wine: Ruby, the variation we typically see here in the UK, Tawny which is aged longer for a more mellow flavour, and Branco: a white port from white grapes, which is best served chilled.

You’ll also spend a day exploring the river valleys and wine terraces of the upper Douro where wines have been produced for over 2,000 years. Heading north, you’ll spend time in the old roman city of Braga and the UNESCO-protected Guimaraes: the birthplace of Portugal, and to the south, you’ll visit the pretty river town of Aveiro – the Venice of Portugal.


You’ll begin your holiday by flying from the UK to Porto. Our driver will collect you on arrival for your transfer into the centre of the city. For your first evening, there's an excellent selection of restaurants lining the riverbank at Ribeira Cais, close to Porto's most famous landmark: the Ponte Luiz I bridge.
You’ll explore Porto on a half-day walking tour with visits to the Se Cathedral, Sao Bento train station with its impressive azulejo tiles, and the Palacio da Bolsa, before crossing the Ponte de Dom Luis I Bridge to sample Porto’s most famous export in the port houses of Vila Nova de Gaia.
You’ll spend today on our Douro Valley Wine Tour, exploring the terraces of the Quinta do Portal and Quinta do Bomfim estates, and including a river cruise from Pinhao.
You’ll have a free day to visit the Praca da Liberdade and the famous Lello bookshop, before climbing the Clerigos Tower for a 360⁰ view of the whole city.
You’ll head south for a tour of Aveiro – the ‘Venice of Portugal’.
You’ll have a free day to walk the riverfront to Foz do Douro.
You’ll head out of the city on tour of the historic cities of Braga and Guimaraes, with visits to the Roman house at Domus da Escola, the Bom Jesus do Monte monument and the Castelo de Guimaraes – the 10th century medieval castle considered to be the birthplace of the Kingdom of Portugal.
You'll be transferred to the airport for your flight home.
