A few weeks ago, we decided to go on a short getaway and randomly chose to go to Porto for 4 days! Since we usually don’t go to the same place twice and we both haven’t been there before, it was an easy call!
It was really cool because finding the travel destination and actually booking the flight & hotel took us 5 minutes – no kidding (seriously, I need 2 days to decide which bag to buy but can book an entire trip in 5 minutes..).
Anyways.. we decided not to make to many plans for the trip besides going on a boat and a city bus tour. The boat tour was great, we got to the see the six bridges, which traverse the Douro river between Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia and the city bus tour turned out as a great choice as well. It was valid for 48 hours, took us to all the sights and we could take the bus as often as we liked. Just perfect for people who are staying only a few days.. We jumped on and off the bus like 100 times a day 😀 it took us to the best places and whenever we felt like we wanted to go eat something or just relax at a café at the Douro river, we just got off the bus.
I was very impressed by this beautiful city with all those colorful and tiled buildings.. so much beauty..
I can only recommend this beautiful and amazing town if you’re looking for a holiday destination; I’m sure you will love it!
And when you get there, take a moment, breathe in – and listen to the sound of the town..
Lots of Love,
