The second largest city in Portugal and one of the most beautiful places in Western Europe, Porto is a dream destination. Surrounded by beautiful beaches dotting the shoreline, the heart of Porto is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and it’s a must-see for any history lover. Porto is one of the most walkable cities in Europe. Though its hills will give you a workout, they will also give you a perfect vantage point to take in the panoramic views of the city.  But the city’s world-famous Port wine is what really put this place on the map!  Enjoy all this city has to offer: stunning vistas, delicious food, hauntingly beautiful fado music, and a delicious wine you won’t find anywhere else.
